Hyundai Tucson: Battery Condition - Vehicle parasitic current inspection

Hyundai Tucson - Fourth generation (NX4) - (2020-2023) - Workshop Manual / Engine Electrical System / Charging System / Battery Condition - Vehicle parasitic current inspection

Inspection

Check the battery for damage or deformation. If severe damage, deformation or leakage is found, replace the battery.

Using the Ammeter

  1. Turn the all electric devices OFF, and then turn the ignition switch OFF.
  2. Close all doors except the engine hood, and then lock all doors.

(1) Disconnect the hood switch connector.

(2) Close the trunk lid.

(3) Close the doors or remove the door switches.

  1. Wait a few minutes until the vehicle's electrical systems go to sleep mode.

WARNING

For an accurate measurement of a vehicle parasitic current, all electrical systems should go to sleep mode. (It takes at least one hour or at most one day.) However, an approximate vehicle parasitic current can be measured after 10-20 minutes.

  1. Connect an ammeter in series between the battery (-) terminal and the ground cable, and then disconnect the clamp from the battery (-) terminal slowly.

WARNING

Be careful that the lead wires of an ammeter do not come off from the battery (-) terminal and the ground cable to prevent the battery from being reset. In case the battery is reset, connect the battery cable again, and then start the engine or turn the ignition switch ON for more than 10 sec. Repeat the procedure from No. 1.

To prevent the battery from being reset during the inspection,

1) Connect a jump cable between the battery (-) terminal and the ground cable.

2) Disconnect the ground cable from the battery (-) terminal.

3) Connect an ammeter between the battery (-) terminal and the ground cable.

4) After disconnecting the jump cable, read the current value of the ammeter.

  1. Read the current value of the ammeter.
  • If the parasitic current is over the limit value, search for abnormal circuit by removing a fuse one by one and checking the parasitic current.
  • Reconnect the suspected parasitic currentdraw circuit fuse only and search for suspectedunit by removing the component connected with thecircuit one by one until the parasitic draw dropsbelow limit value

Limit value (after 10 - 20 min.) : Below 50 mA

Using the Clamp type Ammeter

  1. Turn the all electric devices OFF, and then turn the ignition switch OFF.
  2. Close all doors except the engine hood, and then lock all doors.

(1) Disconnect the hood switch connector.

(2) Close the trunk lid.

(3) Close the doors or remove the door switches.

  1. Wait a few minutes until the vehicle's electrical systems go to sleep mode.

WARNING

For an accurate measurement of a vehicle parasitic current, all electrical systems should go to sleep mode. (It takes at least one hour or at most one day.) However, an approximate vehicle parasitic current can be measured after 10-20 minutes.

  1. Install the clamp type ammerter on battery negative (-) terminal.

  1. Read the current value of the ammeter.
  • If the parasitic current is over the limit value, search for abnormal circuit by removing a fuse one by one and checking the parasitic current.
  • Reconnect the suspected parasitic currentdraw circuit fuse only and search for suspectedunit by removing the component connected with thecircuit one by one until the parasitic draw dropsbelow limit value.

Limit value (after 10 - 20 min.) : Below 50 mA

The Micro 570

Analyzer

The Micro 570 Analyzer provides the ability to test the charging and starting systems, including the battery, starter and mild hybrid starter generator (MHSG)

WARNING

* Because of the possibility of personal injury, always use extreme caution and appropriate eye protection when working with batteries.

* When charging battery by test result, Battery must be fully charged.

To get accurate test result, battery surface voltage must have subsided ahead before test when you test battery after charged. (See following Battery Test Results) Keypad

Keypad

The Micro 570 button on the key pad provide the following functions :

    Battery charge Set battery charger to 'Auto Mode' (The Mode that charging current drops as the battery charges.) and charge battery until charging current down close to zero or the charger alerts you with an alarm when charge is complete. (

     The MDX-670P Analyzer

    The MDX-670P battery conductance and electrical system analyzer tests batteries as well as starting and charging systems for vehicle. It displays the test results in seconds and features a built-in printer to provide a copy of the results.
