I have 1999 Honda Odyssey that is eating batteries.

I recently replaced alternator....but now something is eating batteries. I've had two batteries totally drained , even after I charged them overnight on a slow 3amp 12v charger. What should I do next to resolve the problem, short of having an expensive mechanic shop tear into the problem.... I am living on restricted income and cannot afford to have mechanic do guesswork at the hourly rate they charge. What can be tried on a shoestring budget???

    I understand your budget restrictions but this is a tough one to pinpoint unless someone with the right experience and equipment is able to take a look at it.

    I would first, make sure your dome lights aren't switched on. I've seen this in the past.

    I wish there was an easy answer.

    Depending on where you live, shop labor is usually around 100.00 an hour.

    Good luck on this.

    While I'm guessing you've solved this by now, I had a similar issue with our Pilot that ended up being an A/C relay was stuck open.
