The sensor for the lights is in the door latch spray some GOOD penetrant in the door latch (WD 40 IS NOT A PENETRATING OIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) open and shut the door several times after you let the penetrant soak a bit Liquid wrench, PB Blaster, BG Penetrant, are good

SOURCE: Battery drain from power door locks on 96 Grand Cherokee

The Module in the Drivers Door is notorius for this problem. I would start by changing that first. Good luck to you. Thanks for using fixya!

SOURCE: door ajar light won't go off

I had the same problem. Spray WD-40 (with the sprayer extender) into the latch of the doors very liberally. Open and close doors a few times. Should resolve issue.

Radio stay on after Jeep is turned off


The remedy consists of finding out the real cause of rapid battery discharge. It isn't the clock. Could be a failing starter.

Why does my 96 Cadillac Eldorado battery keep discharging?


First step have the battery tested, a bad cell can cause a internal drain and kill the battery, if the batt is ok then check for interior lights like visors that stay on or interior light that come on by themselves at night due to defective door switches.

My friend has a 2001 Volvo C70 that drains the battery constantly. She has replaced 2 batteries and is on her second alternator. It runs when boosted but turn it off and its dead. What can the problem...


The unfortunate thing is diagnostics DOES TAKE TIME. You need to set aside the time to be accurate.

Something for sure is draining the battery and methodical diagnosis is the only way to get it figured out. IF there were an open in the alternator to battery circuit, the new alternator would be damaged.

Pull the interior light and radio fuses, disconnect the negative battery and put a test light or volt meter in series with the cable and battery terminal. I expect the light will be lit or the voltage to be above .2 volts draw.... Disconnect the battery, remove one component, connect the battery test setup, and see if voltage drops or light goes out..... when it does, you have the offending system, so investigate that.

Be sure that you can garantee good ground between battery and everything....especially the engine.

Airbag light is on; Engine Light is On, the driver side leaks when it is raining


You my friend have a bundle of problems. See if I can address them for you.
#1) Airbag light (SRS) needs to be reset by dealer or a competent shop - it's a special (and expensive reset tool) it's a safety thing. Keep in mind, if light comes back on, one of the crash sensors is loose, corroded or shorted and needs replacing. #2) Engine light - one of your cars many sensors have triggered computer as to a fault. You need to go to a good part store or shop and have them do an OBII fault scan (different from above) Autozone, Advance etc auto parts stores do these FREE. They'll tell you what needs to be replaced, thenthey can reset your light. #3) Your leak can be anything from door seal, window seal, and if you have a sunroof there's a drain near drivers side. I'd have a good shop look at it.

INTERMITTENT BATTERY DRAINS ARE HARD TO FIND. TURN OFF ALL SWITCHES IN THE VEHICLE. MAKE SURE THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT LITE IS GOING OUT. OPEN THE HOOD. CLOSE ALL THE DOORS. MAKE SURE ALL OF THE COURTESY LITES ARE GOING OFF. DISABLE ANY UNDER THE HOOD LIGHTS. REMOVE THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE. USE A 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT, FASTEN ONE END TO A GOOD GROUND, { METAL PART OF THE MOTOR} . FASTEN THE OTHER END TO THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL OF THE BATTERY. IF THE TEST LIGHT LIGHTS UP THERE IS A BATTERY DRAIN. IF NO LIGHT , NO DRAIN. IF THE LIGHT IS ON LOOK IN THE FUSE/RELAY BOX NEAR THE BATTERY. PULLOUT THE FUSES, LARGE & SMALL ONE AT A TIME, IF THE LIGHT STAYS ON PUT THE FUSE BACK IN TRY THE NEXT FUSE. WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT, THAT IS THE CIRCUIT CAUSING THE DRAIN. IF IT NEVER GOES OUT, DISCONNECT THE ALTERNATOR. IF THAT MAKES THE LIGHT GO OUT, THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE ALTERNATOR. IF THE LIGHT IS NEVER ON, YOU MAY HAVE TO DO THIS ANOTHER DAY TO FIND THE DRAIN. ALSO HAVE THE NEW BATTERY RECHECKED.

I have a slow drain on my car battery. I puller


Use a 12volt test light between the positive battery post and the positive cable with the positive cable disconnected from the battery.
Keep key off.
You will see the test light "light" with any drain.

Any drain showing a dim test light is..... OK
Any drain showing a bright light is.....BAD

Disconnect items (fuses) one at a time and watch the light.
Keep the doors closed....the inside dome light is a drain with the door open!
After fuses are checked....disconnect the alt if needed and watch the light.
Keep going until you get rid of the bright light.

Inside door lights stay on after engine is turned off


Check all doors for a sticking door open sense switch. Check all over-riding interior light activation switches are off. If all the above are ok, check for a sticking interior light relay.
