Why is my battery draining the juice?

35

Asked by Nov 17, 2016 at 06:58 PM about the 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

For some reason my battery goes dead whenever it feels like it.  Usually after
it has set for a couple of days.  It is full of water and the cables are clean.  Also
when I turn the key to start it sounds like my cd player is spinning.  Sometimes
it will turn over (thats when the cd spins too) and sometimes it is completely
dead.  Any suggestions out there?  Thanks.

Maybe the battery is just old and on the way out. You may have a power drain on the battery from something left on in your car.

Thank you full of regrets. I did finally notice my battery is three and a half years old and also the spring thing on passenger door jam that indicates the door is open or closed needs replaced. If the spring is popped out the car thinks the door is open and leaves the dome light on. I need that fixed too or bypassed somehow. Thanks for responding. You were spot on.
