Electric or Mechanic

Asked by Oct 09, 2017 at 04:48 AM about the 1998 Toyota Camry CE

Question type: General

My problem is
The car runs well while driving and has no problem but
once I turned it off...someting continues to work until it kills
the battery each time I turned it off.
I dont know what it is...it continues to make a repeated
click sound similar to the one of central lock.

This is after turning the car off...so this keeps working until
it kills the battery so when i come again to run it, it is
already dead.

The sound comes from the front passenger left side of the engine...from the place where the passenger put his/her legs...and when u open the bonnet it seems close to the fuse box on the left side of the engine

go to youtube and search battery draw..... use a volt meter or a test light..while you pull 1 fuse at a time till the draw stops.. that will be where to look for the dray...also the battery could be bad have it VATED...witch is a surface charge..alt output..LOAD TEST...could just be a shorted battery......
