2001 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 100000 miles
Battery was sluggish over a few days, then died. It was old, so I replaced it. All was fine for a couple more days, until that battery was dead after sitting overnight. Cleaned terminals and connections, reconnected. Tried charging using a trickle charger with battery still attached to car, was still drawing 4 amps after sitting overnight. Would start, but battery died quickly. Charged battery disconnected from car, and battery fully charged. Seems like something is drawing charge from the battery while car isn't running, since the battery dies when sitting. If battery is completely dead, jumping the car and driving around a bit charges it enough to start it again a time or two, so the battery is getting charge, it's just being drained off. When car is started, removing battery does not kill the car, car still runs. Any way I can try to find out what is still on or drawing power?
have the same problem?
