My 2009 CRV has had a touchy electrical system from the beginning. I love this car (truck?) and rely on it to make a living. CRV is 2.75 years old and has 60,000 miles
I needed a jump when the car was a month old. No problems for year and a half.
Six months ago I had to jump the car every week or so. The slightest drain (radio on for half hour w/o engine running) would necessitate a jump. The dealer looked at it and said the alternator and battery were fine and the draw test indicated nothing irregular.
I continued jumping the car every few days and finally (last month) had a non-dealer tell me I needed a new battery. Installed his best battery and all was well up until last week.
Went to start car and battery was totally dead. Would not even unlock, I needed to use key. Took car to different dealer who performed draw, alternator and battery test and told me the month old battery was a dud. Bought another battery from dealer. Three days later battery was totally dead after car sat overnight.
Car is now in the dealer. I'm tired of buying batteries.
Any insight as to what the problem could be would be very much appreciated.
