  1. I doubt if turning them off will help.   Somewhere on your system the resistance to ground is low,  Its possible the insulation on a wire has been rubbing against something and is getting thin. it's not shorting to ground yet but it probably will if you don’t fix it. It’s not something you can fix yourself, You need an expert with the right equipment to troubleshoot it.

    I have been going to her for many years. She is very professional and the specialists that she uses are the best I have encountered in MX.

    Well I guess it depends on how low your standards are.   If you search here you can read how many negative reviews she has.. and we won’t mention about the stuff that went on when her unqualified brother was doing the dental work for her..

    Dra. Candy Ugalde, next to HSBC, does implants.  My husband has 6 that she has provided and he is extremely happy with her and the implants.  376 106 0826

    Dr Candy has so many bad reviews and has been sued for her work involving implants.  She used to and maybe still does have a poster on the the wall in her waiting room with her picture  proclaiming “I completed a two week course in Korea on installing Implants.

    If you need implants the two best dentists at Lakeside are Dr Haro & Dr Barragan those are the ones you go to after you have been to Dr Candy.

  4. I think someone’s trying to baffle you with bull S&$@ there.  
    If you took it to Autozone they would do a load test on your battery and give you a print out showing you the condition of the battery..  if it was me I would see if I could find another battery to use for a few days to see if the problem still happens..  Or take the negative wire off the battery every night.  and it still happens.  If the alternator was intermittently bad the battery would die when you were driving around not always after the car sits for a few hours. If the battery is good What you probably have is a partial short to ground somewhere..  if you’re at all handy and have a multi meter you can check for a short to ground.

    This is a very simple explanation.     Disconnect the negative wire on the battery, select amps on the multi meter, you need to move the meter lead’s around for amps.  connect the multi meter in series with the battery which means  black lead on the negative terminal of the battery, the red lead on the wire you disconnected from them battery. Make sure everything is turned off, doors closed you should only be drawing a few milii amps out of the battery., anymore and you have something going to ground, so now start pulling fuses until the draw from the battery drops to mill amps. That will tell you which circuit it’s on so now you would need a circuit diagram to figure out the wiring.for that fuse..These kinds of grounds can be tricky to find because they aren’t big enough to blow the fuse… 

    Or just take it to a garage..

  5. It’s difficult question to answer with any accuracy, a minimum of 2 weeks but it could be longer, They could have more applications than usual,  they could be short staffed due to vacation or illness, the machine that takes your photo could be broken which isn’t unusual… or some other factor to delay the process. 
    Its Murphy’s law,  if you need it in a hurry something goes wrong, if you don’t need it you get it quickly.

  6. Another expat myth about someone tapping into your line..  it is very difficult to do with it being seen.  
    Don’t bother turning off the main breaker.  First of all gather some information, you could start by posting do information on here.  How much is your CFE bill,  ?  Has it just suddenly gone up ? How many in the home. ? Do you have A/C ?  Do you have a fridge and a separate freezer ? 
    check the  serial number on the bill to make sure it’s the same as the meter. Start making a note of the meter readings, do it before you go to bed and in the morning, over night there should be very little usage..  After you have gathered some reference information then you can start troubleshooting.


  7. Some people just don’t have a clue what goes on here.

    For the 16years that I’ve been here the corner of Aldama & Constitution has been one of the places dealers hang out.. They are not homeless they are dealers.. the van is there so they can conduct their business away from the prying eyes of nosy interfering gringos,  the dog is there to keep nosy gringos away…
