Looking for a B I G Parasitic Drain on the Chassis Battery
I keyed this long post, and when I hit submit, it went into cyberspace. So here is the short version. Chassis battery keeps going dead, even after being plugged in for 5 days, and I can see the charge going to the battery. Thought it was a bad battery, but the battery seems to hold a charge. I put a meter on the battery, looking for an amp draw, and I'm showing 14 - 15 amps. Wow! That will kill it quickly. The house batteries seem unaffected.
Does anyone have any ideas on where to start looking. I know there is a fuse block on the side wall to the right of the emergency brake, and the power distribution box under the hood. I should be able to skip over any fuse less than 15 amps. But I cant think of anything that would normally draw that kind of current. Unfortunately, my days of crawling under a dash are gone, so I will probably have to pay somebody to find this.
Tanks for your thoughts.
