- 45K - ELECTRICAL PROBLEM

2003 Ford Focus

I'm getting a drain from somewhere - trip odometer stopped working suddenly, battery light would go on for lengths of time.

When first starting car - interior/head lights would be dim. As car warmed up and I opened it up on the highway, lights would suddently become vbrighter and heater/AC would become more powerful. Battery warning light would also shut off.

My mechanic says there is a drain on the batttery.(Which has also been replaced) He can't seem to locate the drain. He's checked, rechecked, disonnected & reconnected both the alternator & starter - still getting drain from somewhere.
