    Hey fellas, I have an 06 QC that will drain the battery overnight to the point that it will not start. I had the battery, alternator and starter all tested and all showed to be good. This has happen twice in about a 2 week period which is the strangest part lol. Any hints or suggestions would be a great help. Thanks guys.

    It has some wiring of some kind that I just found around the drivers side headlight. Had a Schumacher trickle charger wired up to the battery but I have took all that off. I haven't got into the other bundle of wires around the headlight yet to see what all that is yet. Haven't done parasitic draw test on battery yet but she fired right up this morning and ran good.

    Well the beautiful thing is...if you swap the battery..and it still does it, at least you'll know... it ain't the battery. lol

    I had a similar problem. First I was told it was the alternator since i just purchased the battery. Then thought I had a draw turns out that the battery was bad after all.
