Battery Drain: Mystique 2000

03-07-2006, 02:49 PM
Hey guys, thanks for the upfront on the mystique. I have one more question: After this mystique sets for more than a day, the battery goes down. I've asked around and some say it's the radio and some say it's the alarm system. Which one is it?? This is about to drive me crazy because sometimes on my days off I don't wnt to move. Can I get an aanswer from someone thats in the know???

chances are you may have a short that drains the battery, when you turn the engine off you might not put the ignition in the lock position and that allows power to go to the radio, ect... you may even want to look at the battery, it could be weak,

what causes a weak battery? several things really. 1. too much water, when a battery starts to become weak, you can add water to it, quick fix, but this does dilute the sulphric acid, so in the case drain the battery fluid, and add some sulphric acid. you can put it up at and automotive store. 2. the acid, the acid in the battery may have eaten a hole in one of the plates. if this has happen your only choice is to replace the battery.

hope this helps

This happened to me once...

Pull down your visors inside car (driver and passenger side) and check your vanity mirrors. Sometimes one will be left slid open so the light is always on and it'll suck your battery down.

Learn from my mistakes..!!! lol
