Question about 2000 Ford Windstar
After having battery and alternator checked to be good I discovered a draw on the battery . With an amp meter on the positive cable leading to the fuse panel the needle would jump intermittently to about a 5 amp (spike) then to zero, this continued until the battery was dead. After pulling each fuse 1 by 1 the culprit was fuse location # 8 a 20 amp fuse that controls the rear electronic module among other things. I would like to repair this problem myself if possible. If the module is at fault where is it and what can I expect to pay for it. Thanks in advance.
Have you had any recent electrical work done, including installs of new radio, bulbs, amplifiers or the such. Something is running when it shouldn't be, obviously, but what? The easiest way to go through this with fewest headaches is to start pulling fuses and taking readings to determine if that circuit has the draw. At least this will narrow down the list of culprit. You sound like a pretty sharp guy, I'll let you take it from here.
