Help! Battery won't keep charged!
Battery wont stay charged while driving. I can start the engine, put it in drive and have a smooth ride, but the guage for my battery shows the battery charge slowly dropping. Right now my temporary fixe has been unplugging the radio/antenna, took out the fuse for the interior lights, i keep yhe AC/heater off, and drive with now heads lights. Battery still slowly drains. Ive been having it recharged at advance auto. Alright before you ask. I checked the battery and alltenator. Took it to advance autos and they checked them out with their diagnostic tool. There was a weird clicking noise whenever i would open the door, so I figured there was wire draining the battery somehow. Took apart the dash and inspected the radio, VIC, and glove department. I noticed that the silonoid on the block under the glove department was making the sound, I disconnected it but then i heard a electric swush sound so i plugged the solinoid back in. I Was afraid i might be damaging something. I'm working on replacing the battery cables. The positive cable has some brown discoloration. I was wondering if anyone had anyother suggestions or ideas.
