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.

1997 Nissan Altima Misfire Diagnosis -EricTheCarGuy
In this video I get into a misfire and check engine light on this 1997 Nissan Altima. The misfire codes are P0100 MAF sensor, P0325 Knock Sensor, and P0304 Misfire cylinder #4. The engine also runs rough at idle. I go through the steps of it's diagnosis, find the problem, and come back after the repair. The actual repair of this vehicle will take place in another video (next week), this video covers how I found out what was wrong with this Altima. Engine performance issues can be tricky to nail down but with a little time, patients, and some diagnostic know how, I'm sure you'll be able to overcome any engine performance issue.

Using Voltage Drop To Find Key-off Battery Drains
(This is an excerpt of a more detailed video we will be sharing the first of March. In the full version, we'll also show you how to measure using just your digital multimeter and/or using a low amp current probe.) Today's cars use dozens of onboard controllers that can remain "on" even when the key is turned off. Using traditional methods of measuring battery drain (removing a battery cable and placing an ammeter in series, for example) can cause the offending module to reset and not present the problem for testing. This method uses a technique called "voltage drop testing" to look for current flow without opening any circuits or pulling any fuses. And by identifying quickly which circuit power feed is "alive", it also reduces the time needed to isolate the cause. 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





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 Read An Automotive Block Wiring Diagram
As we've shared with you over the years, there are three areas you need (at a minimum) to be assured of success when tackling an electrical diagnosis. The first is a solid understanding of electrical fundamentals. You need to be comfortable in your knowledge of what voltage, resistance and current are and the relationship between them. We covered those as the main topic of a Trainer video we posted back in May of this year. Second "must have" is competence in a variety of electrical testing techniques, starting with the understanding of what your digital multimeter (DMM) can and can't do. You should know how to perform a static resistance test, static voltage test, dynamic current tests, and absolutely be confident in your ability to perform and understand a voltage drop test. We've covered these topics and more in videos and archived webinars that you'll find in the AutoPro Workshop and on our YouTube channel. Third on the list is the ability to read and understand a wiring schematic and/or wiring diagram. These are more than just the electrical road map that tells you what components are a part of the circuit you are troubleshooting. They are also instrumental in helping you understand how the circuit works and vital to organizing your diagnostic strategy. In this edition of the Trainer, we'll focus on the third. We'll show you how to identify the circuit elements (source, load, control(s), circuit protection and path) and, based on that information, how to decide on what type of tests you'll need to perform. Then we'll walk you through a simple circuit diagnosis and show you how to put all this "theory" to use!
