STARTING OUT---BEFORE YOU GET TOO CARRIED AWAY.........THE BATTERY AND ALTERNATOR ARE USUALLY THE 1ST TO BECOME SUSPECTS

YOU STATED THE BATTERY IS NEW----IS THE ALTERNATOR SENDING JUICE BACK TO IT?....

ALONG WITH THIS BIT OF INFO----THIS MUST BE CONSIDERED THE MOST

THIS IS THE # 1 CAUSE OF FAILURE (BATTERY IS ALMOST NECK AND NECK)......AND I SEE THIS DAILY

..........RIGHT NOW, I'M GONNA ASSUME MR. BATTERY IS AT 100%

YOU MUST CRACK DOWN AND GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY---STANDING BACK AND LOOKIN' JUST AIN'T GONNA CUT IT!

MOST OF THIS CAN BE DONE--AND TESTED---WITHOUT CRAWLING UNDER! MOST PEOPLE GIVE ME THAT "STUPID LOOK" WHEN I SUGGEST IT.........AND THAT "GOSH LOOK" WHEN I REACH IN THERE AND SHOW 'EM........EXACTLY OPPOSITE OF WHAT THEY SAID THEY DID!

UNFORTUNATELY, I'M NOT RIGHT THERE WITH YOU AND YOU MUST FIND THIS YOURSELF, WITH A LITTLE MOTIVATION FROM MY END!.........REALLY READ MY LINK---LOOK AT THE PICS---AND "DO" WHAT I SHOW YOU.....START WITH THE EZ STUFF!!!!

NOW---SEE-UNS HOW A "JUMP" WILL CRANK YOU UP---I WOULD THINK THE OTHER "STARTING COMPONENTS" ARE IN WORKING ORDER

LET'S SAY MR. BATTERY IS DRAINED DOWN DEAD?????

AS FAR AS A "CONSTANTLY DRAINING" BATTERY GOES---THIS MAY BE A SIMILAR TYPE POSSIBILITY YOU ARE HAVING........YES, ANOTHER LINK!.....I JUST CAN'T TYPE THIS STUFF OVER AND OVER, IT'D TAKE ME FOREVER!

LOOK UP "PARASITIC DRAIN" ON "YOU TUBE"---THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS TO TEST FOR IT

RETURN HERE WITH YOUR FINDINGS--FOR ANY OF MY INFO
