    Default City battery drains out over night

    I have strange problem in my Honda city (2011), my phonex dry battery 11 months old drains out overnight and i am unable to start my car in the morning (even after 8 to 9 hrs). i got it thoroughly checked out whole wiring and electrical points but unable to figure out the real issue. Also tested the generator as well it is giving enough voltage to charge the battery and also i got my battery checked and according to mechanic it is fine and also got it recharged few times.

    Is there a security system/alarm installed in your car? Or some extra electrical work done ?

    Get your sound system (if after market) checked. A friend of mine had similar problem some wire was direct which used to suck all battery juice overnight

    Simple. If you have not already done this. Disconnect the battery when you park in night and then before starting next day connect the battery back. if the car starts then there is some phantom load etc and if the car does not start then battery needs replacement.
