A dead battery may be a result of the anti-lock brake system (ABS) pump continuing to run after the ignition is turned off. This is commonly caused by an ABS pump relay which has become stuck in the "on" mode. If a sticking ABS pump relay is confirmed it should be replaced. This relay is commonly found behind the passenger side head light.
