battery is drained after sitting overnight

1 Answer


You need to do a parasitic draw test, so when you have the digital multi meter hooked up between the neg, battery cable and neg. battery post, you start pulling fuses to see what circuit it is that has the draw on it. Then you can start looking to what the problem is.
