1996 es350 Battery always dead

Recommended Posts

my almost new battery is always dead. Something is draining the battery. Even a long drive doesn't charge enough to start the car again. Do seats drain when they are turned off? I've seen this problem listed before but now cannot find other posts. I need some good guesses. Thank you.

Hello, Carla.

This is the classic way to locate battery drain:

How to Find a Parasitic Battery Drain: 11 Steps (with Pictures) (wikihow.com)

If you can't do this, yourself, you may want to ask someone who is familiar with the tools required to complete the test.
Or you can bring the car to an "Auto Electric" shop or independent mechanic/shop.

Good luck!

I can now take it in knowing what to ask for. My mechanic retired and I trusted him but strangers who can run up a bill, not so much! thank you.
