Q: Battery drained in jeep

asked by on

Something is draining the battery in my jeep.

There are several things that could be doing this. Look for the obvious things first, like a dome light, glove box light, vanity light, window motor, seat motor, radio, etc. The problem could even be a battery that is worn and no longer holds a charge. You may need to have a trained technician, such as one from YourMechanic, perform a battery test to diagnose what is draining the battery.
