Q: Bluetooth draining car battery

asked by on February 03, 2016

My Bluetooth ids not working in my car and it is draining the battery overnight.

If this is a factory installed device, your radio may be to blame. The unit will have to be replaced and reprogrammed by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic. If it is an aftermarket device, I would return it to the place of purchase for a defective refund, or just buy a new one.
