Finding Leaks, Step By StepStep 1 Chad Hunt Most PopularStart with a fully charged battery. Be sure the radio and lights are shut off. Unplug your cellphone charger, GPS or laptop. Close the door or hold the dome light button down with a wedge. Remove the key from the ignition. Now use a jumper to bridge the battery’s negative post to the clamp to preserve any memory and to keep from activating the antitheft code if your radio uses one.Step 2 Chad HuntNow you can put your ammeter in series with the post and clamp. When you remove your first jumper, the meter will read the current draw from the battery. Here, 610 milliamps is way too much for comfort.Step 3 Chad HuntAdvertisement – Continue Reading BelowGot a light in the glovebox? Maybe it’s not turning off. Pop open the door and see if the bulb is hot, but don’t burn your fingers. Perhaps the trunk light stays lit. You might need to get into the trunk and have someone you trust close you in to see if it’s going out. Or just touch the bulb to see if it’s hot. (The first way is more fun.)Step 4 Chad HuntOnce we narrowed the parasitic drain down to a single circuit, we used this test cable, which plugs in to the fuse box (rahamtool.com) to patch our ammeter in to the circuit. Disconnect, remove or turn off all the loads on the circuit one at a time until you identify the culpritCar AlarmsAftermarket alarms are notorious for sucking even healthy, fully charged batteries dry within a few days. If you have any non-factory alarms, it’s the first thing you should check. Be aware that there may be more than one connection to the car’s electrical system, and some aftermarket installers may use, ahem, non-industry standard splicing techniques. So you may have to simply follow the alarm wires to see where they go. More expensive alarms tend to be less problematic, but maybe that’s because more expensive alarms are installed by better, higher-paid technicians.StereosOEM stereos are usually not problematic. Aftermarket stereos, the kind with giant, finned boxes and their own finger-thick wires directly wired to the battery, can be. With a power lead bypassing the car’s electrical system, they go into standby mode, waiting for the main radio head unit to tell them to wake up. In standby, they’ll draw only a milliamp or three. If they fail to go into standby, or if the DIP switches on the amp are set incorrectly, they can draw as much as several hundred milliamps, even though they’re not producing any actual noise. Or music.Proximity KeysLots of new cars are available with proximity keys. They’re a great convenience—all you need to do is walk up to your locked car with the key in your pocket or purse. As you approach the door, the locks pop open automatically. Plunk yourself in the seat and, with the key still in your pocket, thumb the starter button and drive away.Guess how these things work. There’s a radio receiver that continuously listens for the key’s frequency. When the receiver hears a signal at its assigned frequency, it wakes up to see if the key is the one that matches the car. That draws more current for a minute or two, until the receiver abandons the possibility that it’s about to unlock the door for master. This might be an issue if you leave the car parked for many weeks without starting it. Imagine the confusion of a car parked near the elevator door in a busy parking structure. Every proximity key that walks past makes it sit up and beg, draining your battery for a few minutes. Soon, dead battery.This issue is even more profound in the case of hybrids like the Toyota Prius. The key receiver operates on 12 volts, as do most of the accessories. More importantly, the 12-volt battery operates the main computer that controls everything else, like the door locks. The Prius starter, however, operates off the 280-volt traction battery—but the main computer has to be powered up for anything to happen. Since it doesn’t have to start the engine, the 12-volt battery of the Prius is very small, 38 ampere-hours. So while a 64-ampere-hour battery in a normal car can last for weeks of a proximity receiver checking for the right key, the Prius battery can run too low within a few days. Bottom line: Turn off the proximity-key function, from the Prius’s electronic dashboard, whenever you’re parking it longer than overnight. It might be possible to do this on other vehicles as well. Check the owner’s manual.

If it’s good, you’re ready to go. If it’s not, keep trying. You’re still young. You have a lot more time to think of more cool designs! Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 3 Helpful 15 How can I be sure that my drawing is cool? wikiHow Contributor It depends on what you think is cool. Remember, it’s your opinion that matters, not others, unless you’re drawing for someone else. Everyone is different. Maybe draw designs on it if you want to make it unique, unless you want it realistic. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 1 Helpful 6 How do I draw a car with only a sketch to go off of? wikiHow Contributor Start by noting what basic shapes can be put together to make the shape of the car. Then you can move angles around until you get a good picture of the car you want to draw. You can then add details like wheels and windows. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 2 Helpful 5
Most vehicles draw some battery current when the key is off, thanks to the clock and the internal memory of engine computers, body-control modules and radio presets. Altogether, they draw a very small amount of current. Fifty milliamps would be a safe upper limit for this, although many vehicles will draw less. If you’re not sure, look up the correct rating in the service manual.
Whether it’s the clean curves of a ‘Vette or the rugged muscles of a truck, about the only thing cooler than drawing a car is actually driving one. Okay, there are lots of cool things other than drawing a car. But learning how to draw a car is a nifty skill for any serious artist or car enthusiast.
To measure the car-off current draw, you’ll need a multimeter capable of reading current, preferably one with a 10- or 20-amp capacity, but a 200 milliamp lower scale. You can find these for as little as 20 bucks. Start with a fully charged battery. Either make sure the doors are closed or wedge the door switch shut. Turning off the dome light isn’t good enough—on many cars, an open door will activate several circuits. (One example: Open the driver’s door on some vehicles and the fuel-pump relay briefly activates, to prime the fuel injection for faster starting. After the initial surge, that circuit will continue to draw over 100 milliamps.) Unplug any power-draining cables from the lighter socket, such as a cellphone charger or GPS. Even if the device itself is unplugged from the charger, the plug may still consume a few milliamps of current. Got an ear-bleedin’ stereo amp in the trunk? Pull the fuse, because it may be in standby mode rather than completely shut down.
