Q: Si no empujo llave en ACC y la paso a Local, consume batería?

asked by on

El Dodge Grand Caravan no arranca por batería descargada después de 30 horas apagado, no hay circuitos ni da códigos de error. La batería es nueva.

El manual dice que se debe empujar la llave en la posición ACC (no lo hago) y después pasar a Lock para apagarlo.

Quiero saber si consume batería.

My car has an automatic transmission.

It sounds like you are asking about a parasitic drain on your battery after leaving the car idle for a while. Once the key is pulled from the ignition, the several computers in the vehicle run a few checks before the vehicle completely shuts down, but this process shouldn’t take longer than a few minutes. A parasitic drain test can be done on the vehicle to see if there are any circuits staying live for too long which usually means there is a shorted circuit or failed sensor somewhere. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come out, run the parasitic drain test and offer a more personal diagnosis if the battery drain and estimate the proper repairs.
