Electrical problem in a 2002 Hyundai Accent GL


Asked by Oct 24, 2016 at 09:32 PM about the 2002 Hyundai Accent GL Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The battery died over night. I replaced the battery as it was dead, drove the car without problem and parked for the night, the car died over night. I replaced the alternator and the battery. Drove the car today and parked. Restarted the car and on the way home the clock went out first, then the radio, then the dials on the dashboard and when I came to a stop the car shut off and wouldn't restart. The battery was dead again. I jumped the battery and the car ran for two and a half miles and then died again. Has this happened to anyone before. I hoping to get an idea of what is causing the problem, thanks for your help.

Check for a blown alternator fuse in the fuse box under the hood.

I think the this is the issue of current leakage. This current leakage generally happens from the roof lamp circuit. Please check it after removing the roof lamp fuse.
