ok...i have a 325e and something is draining my battery bad...if i leave my car not running for about 6 hours then my battery is dead the next time i try and start it..i hooked up a volt meter and then unplugged each fuse 1 by 1 and the meter was still showing something was pulling...im thinking it could be the starter cause its happend to people i know...so does anyone else think thats it or do you have any other sugestions???
how old is the battery usually old batteries suck at holding a charge i had to put a new battery in mine and the way I wired my headunit it always has power(once I hooked it up and got it going I didn't want to mess with it anymore) and it takes almost four or five days to drain the battery with out running the car
ok new update..i went to get in the car after school and it wouldnt turn on...so i left it alone for about 10 mins and went back out and it fired right up...now the people before me moved the battery and all the wires to trunk...(dont know why but they did) so could it be a bad conection coming from up front to the back??? or the starter??? or the altenator????Please help me...im stranded at home with no ride
have you cleaned the battery posts and connectors? They tend to build up this white stuff, calcium deposits I think on the posts that kill the circuit and only burn off after use. I'd make sure that your battery posts and associated clamps are really clean. That can make a tremendous difference...good luck
