2008 Toyota Tundra Question: Battery Drain

 

Question

Visitor, 5.7L V8, Rigby, ID, April 03, 2010, 18:31

If I leave my 2008 Toyota Tundra parked for more than three days, the battery is dead. Mechanic told me that there is a draw on battery, but doesn't know where. Anyone else have this problem and how to fix it.

    The battery can become drained if your truck has the auto-shutoff headlights feature, and you leave the headlight switch in the "on" position and rely on the auto-off feature to shut them off. The relay that shuts off the headlights draws power from the battery.
