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.

Regular Oil vs Synthetic Oil -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Lately I've been seeing a lot of posts over at the forum talking about switching to synthetic oil with less than ideal results. Instead of typing out the same answer over and over I thought I would make this short video to help explain my experiences with synthetic oil. I'm not saying synthetic oil is bad, in fact it has it's place but my opinion is that place is not in your 15 year old Toyota or Chevy. The reasons as explained in the video are that synthetic has different flow characteristics and can actually cause your engine to leak oil and run noisy. It's perfectly OK to run conventional oil of the correct viscosity and change it on a regular basis. You don't need to spend the extra money on synthetic oil if your owners manual does not call for it. I look forward to your comments on this.

How To Check A Charging System - EricTheCarGuy
How To Check A Charging System - EricTheCarGuy http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Well this is by request and is a companion to checking a battery so I think I'll post it as a response to that video. I try to make things easy for you and I think this test fits the bill, you can even use the same tester or just a regular DVOM which is something I think you should have if you are serious about working on cars, I hope to do an entire series on using one of these so be sure to have one.

Torque Converters Explained -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ In this video I cover the purpose and operation of the turbine, stator, impeller, and torque converter clutch. I hope the explanation and practical give you some insight into how these parts work to not only transfer power from the engine to the transmission, but also how it drives the transmission pump and doubles the torque output of the engine when you take off from a dead stop. I've wanted to make this video for some time. In fact I've had the fans sitting in the back of the shop for almost a year. Now that I have the Automatic Transmission Dissection video under my belt I thought I would add a torque converter dissection into the mix. I hope you enjoy this video and that it gets you a better understanding of torque converter operation. Especially since I killed my air compressor cutting this one in half. Link to compressor repair video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Zz9SKSHxFg Yes this is indeed 'take 2' of this video. I changed a few things to make the information more accurate.

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.

Testing For Current Drain That Runs Down Car Battery
When your car battery runs down when the car is just parked and won't start the car after a few days, most people assume it's a short circuit. Shorts tend to fix themselves by melting things, it's probably a current drain. You can find out with an inexpensive multimeter with a DC Amp Scale. http://www.ifitjams.com/circuit.htm
