  1. When I charge my brand new battery with the battery charger I experience this issue: With the battery charging rate set for 2 amps, and when the analog meter needle shows that the battery is charged (needle shows 0 amps going into the battery) -- then every 30 seconds the needle will jumps up to 6-7 amps and then drop back down to 0 amps going into the battery. This will keep repeating as described above over and over. With the battery charging rate set for 10 amps, and when the analog meter needle shows that the battery is charged (needle shows 0 amps going into the battery) -- then every 9 seconds the needle will jumps up to 6-7 amps and then drop back down to 0 amps going into the battery. This will keep repeating as described above over and over.. Something is obviously drawing power from the battery during the above 2 short events. The cars doors are physically closed, but the door locks buttons are up/alarm system is disengaged, not external or internal lights are on. Is this normal ? I experienced this same issue, even if I switch battery chargers, and as well on two different car batteries? Is the computer drawing this kind of power or is something else drawing this power for short intervals ? Could I have a shorted diode in the alternator that could be causing this ? Has anyone experienced this ? I was going to start pulling fuses to see what circuit this issue is tied to ! Any ideas on how to defeat Mr Murphy will be appreciated ! Paul in Michigan (COLD)
