    Default Mehran Headlights draining battery like hell

    Hi Experts,

    Another issue I am facing now a days: My Mehran 1996 is running fine for all day long and even starts fine after 2 days. alternator is charging normal. But I noticed that when travelling at night with headlights on, Battery is totally drained even car is running. I also noticed minor missing while headlamps are on. Last day while coming back from fortress it just stopped in our street and won't move the self. I checked with meter and voltage was 11.85

    I then charged the battery by attaching it to my UPS and charging for 10 minutes and put it back in car and it started fine. I suspect something wrong with headlight relay or wiring.... This only happens when I drive with headlights ON.

    Anyone with any idea what could be wrong and how can i fix it myself?

    How old your battery is?
    also check its specific gravity

    I purchased the car in used condition and battery was checked by auto electrician and he said it is fine. Car starts fine even after 2 days. Battery voltage stays at 12.3.
