Why is my car dying?

Asked by Guru9ZLN2C Dec 05, 2020 at 11:50 PM about the 2016 Ford Fusion SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I’ve been waking up to my battery dead. I had
my alternator and battery changed and my car is
still dying overnight

1 Answer


I would recommend testing for a parasitic drain. DC negative cable and use multimeter to complete circuit. Set for 200 ma. Key off, anything over 50 ma is considered parasitic. If discovery is present, pull fuses 1 at a time to track down the problem circuit(s)
