Hi Larry. Thanks for contacting us today. While removing the battery cables reduces the battery drain, it doesn’t resolve the problem. What you’re describing is called a parasitic battery drain and is often caused by an electrical short or open electrical relay. However, finding the source of this will require an onsite electrical inspection from a professional mechanic. You might want to read this article to learn some of the common reasons why this issue occurs.
