How To Perform a Parasitic Draw Test - EricTheCarGuy

http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ This video has been a long timing coming and is one of the most requested things I get is about batteries going dead overnight so I'm very happy to finally bring you this video about the process of finding a parasitic draw which is a small drain on a battery above 50ma when the vehicle is shut off. Once you find the right fuse(s) the next step is to trace the components involved in that circuit till you find the source of the draw, you first start with a wiring diagram to give you an idea of where to start looking and then start unplugging things in that circuit to isolate the cause, it's quite scientific really a simple process of elimination. Here is a link to BBB's site that you can use to look up wiring diagrams for your application. http://www.bbbind.com/tech_database.html Good luck and if you have anymore questions check the database on my website and if you don't find what you're looking for there then post your question to my forum, here's a link. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Be safe, have fun, and stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

This is how the cooling fan got fixed. I realize that some of you out there might be electronic wizards and know how to solder way better than this but my methods work and are way better than using those plastic connectors that just clip 2 wires together. My little tool works good in tight spots too, all you need is some house wiring and some alligator clips to make that happen. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.  ETCG

3 Ways Of Finding The Cause Of Key-Off Battery Drain (Parasitic Draw)
(This is the full-length version of an earlier video we shared. This version shows additional methods, all of which can be used together to make the job of isolating the cause of key-off drain much simpler.) Your customer has their car towed to your shop after it wouldn't start that morning. You check the battery and see it's pretty low, and you do what's correct. You charge the battery and test its condition. It passes with flying colors. You reinstall the battery in the car and the car starts immediately. You check the starting and charging systems and still no culprit is uncovered. Being the professional auto service technician you are, you know there is only one other logical explanation. Something on the car is not turned off when it should be and it's draining the battery down to a point there isn't enough left to spin the engine. But finding the parasite that is causing that drain can pose a few challenges. Increasingly common are electronic control modules that insist on staying on, or "awake" when they should time out or "sleep". The traditional method of monitoring current while removing fuses one at a time can often cause the offending module to reset, and the problem to temporarily disappear. One method you can use to find the cause of a key-off battery drain without intruding on the circuits is to measure for the presence of voltage drop across the vehicle's fuses. The fuse is a resistance, isn't it? And according to the laws of electricity, voltage will be used to overcome that resistance resulting in a drop across the fuse we can measure with our meter. And that's only one way you can catch the parasite without having to open the circuit. In this edition of The Trainer, we'll show you how to test for a "key off" battery drain using a few different methods; first, using the ammeter and voltmeter of your digital multimeter (DMM) and second, using an amp clamp and a digital storage oscilloscope (DSO). Knowing a few different ways to test for these parasites should make those challenges a bit easier to handle! Click this link to subscribe to Motor Age! http://bit.ly/MA_YT_freesub

How to Find A Car Battery Drain
In this video I show how to determine the amount of current that is being drawn from the car battery while your car is turned off. I made a similar video before, but it seemed that a lot of you wanted me to actually take of the cable. So that's what I did lol. The amount of current being drawn from your battery can help you determine whether there is a legitimate problem or not. If your battery keeps dying and the draw is less than 50 mA then the problem is the battery, but if the draw is greater than 50 mA then the problem is something other than your battery. Here you can access the same online info that I use to work on my own cars: http://gan.doubleclick.net/gan_click?lid=41000613802463867&pubid=2100000000 0630562&lsrc=17 Here at Northern Tools you can find Milwaukee Tools, and other tools I use in my videos: http://gan.doubleclick.net/gan_click?lid=41000613802463294&pubid=2100000000 0630562&lsrc=17 Click here to show thanks, and help support Fixbook: http://www.hondahowto.com/p/blog-page_25.html Fixbook DIY Car Repair

Power Probe 3 Demonstration
http://www.gofasthavefun.ca In this video I show you the main features and capabilities of the Power Probe 3. This is a very powerful and useful tool when working with 12 volt electrical, but you have to be careful with it. Even though the Power Probe has a lot of built in features that several different devices put together have, it does not replace electrical diagnostic tools like a multimeter. What it does replace are those cheap little test lights. I love this tool and if you want to work on cars it's pretty much a must have when it comes to vehicle electrical.
