Default Gas 1200 battery draining

I have 2005 Gas MPT1200 "workhorse". I bought it used and have had routine "check-up" done at an authorized shop. About a week after purchasing, I go out to use the cart and the ranking battery was dead. I jump it off and it ran fine all day. I let it sit again for a whew days and came out to find the battery dead again. I replaced the battery, and everything seemed fine for about a week or so. It sat for another full week and when I went use it, the battery was dead again. I again jumped it off and it ran fine all day. Now the battery is dead once again. 3 days this time. I have ordered new voltage regulator just to try that, but have concerns it could be something else. F.Y.i. It has an electric dump bed and lights that are all factory and operate without the key being turned. There is also a fuel gage that operates without the key. any suggestions?

Default Re: Gas 1200 battery draining

if it wa me, I would put a volt meter on the battery, key off. Watch it drop voltage. Start pulling fuses one at a time to see if voltage stops dropping with each one. If there is no fuse for certain accessories, unplug them directly one at a time to see if they make a difference. Hopefully you'll find which one is doing it.

There is a chance of buying brand new crap batteries. I've done that too. Stick with Interstate if you can.
