The battery is going dead on my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I'm trying to find the problem with my multimeter. So far I have:

  • Taken off the negative battery terminal and connected my meter between the battery and the ground cable. I found a drain current of 2.5 amp.

  • Then I started pulling fuses, one by one, and the current dropped to 1.5 amp when I removed the radio fuse.

  • After removing all of the fuses, the current is still 1.5 amp.

I'm stumped. Where do I look next? Are there components that could be draining my battery that don't go through the fuse panel?

  • Do you have the optional power inverter? It is a 110v outlet located in the rear of the center console. – mikes Feb 13 '15 at 22:03
  • No I don't have outlet power inverter – Robert sakhria Feb 14 '15 at 6:17

    Check the draw from the alternator. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Feb 14 '15 at 12:38
