That fuse is in the fuse panel inside the vehicle (see picture below). Also below is a fuse layout and the fuse for the glovebox lamp is the one located in the number 27 position. Now you will need to put it back in as this fuse covers things such as your backup lamps, shift indicator and more. Now if the bulb is taken out it shouldn't be pulling power from your battery as the light is not lit and/or draining power. If you have tried taking the bulb out and your battery is still going dead and the battery is good, you may be looking at something other than that draining the battery. If you need an owners manual for your vehicle, feel free to email me at csautomotivecars@att.net with your make, model and year and I will be happy to email you a copy of the owners manua. I hope this helps.....

Disconnect the positive clamp on your battery but take care not to touch the body metal with the wrench when doing this.

Now connect an small light between the + terminal and the clamp. Put the clamp on a rag so it can't touch the sheet metal. If any drain is present the light will glow. Or you can check the amount of drain with an small ammeter. An drain of 1-2 Watts can be tolerated. Next pull the fuse for the mechanic clock and the radio. Still any current flowing (light on)?
Ok, so you really have a problem. Now start pulling the fuses in the fuse box one by one until the light goes off. This is the circuit in which the problem lies. Check your manual or the indications in the cover of the fuse box to see which systems are connected to that fuse.
The next steps depend on the systems concerned. Try disconnecting each one of the parts connected in the circuit. Again it's the same - when the light goes out you've found the problem.
Even better than a light bulb is an buzzer. Many people have one of those annoying little rascals lying around. Use it. good-day !

If the alternator and battery is tested and pass then you current draw that has to be known. Do you have a test light? youll have to put it in series to negative terminal to negative battery . if it light up there you start the hunt glove box light bulb trunk light bulb.and dash lights.didnt the 77 have power seats? they are popular for battery drain is it warm how about the passenger side why the seat well because they have power even without the key in ignition. Here is your find without test light , with the car sitting feel the power seat is it warm if it is there is your drain, if it isnt go to glove box is the bulb warm if it is there the short, if its not check the trunk where ever the draw is at it has to do with devices that turn on without the key being needed.

Why does my battery keep going dead I have relaced it 3 times a new alternator if the car sits for 2 days or more and is not started and ran the battery is completely dead


BATTERY DRAINS ARE TRICKY. TURN OFF ALL SWITCHES, CLOSE GLOVE BOX. MAKE SURE GLOVE BOX LIGHT IS OUT. OPEN THE HOOD. DISABLE THE UNDER HOOD LIGHT. CLOSE ALL THE DOORS. MAKE SURE ALL COURTESY LIGHTS ARE OUT. DISCONNECT NEG. BATTERY CABLE. USE 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT, CONNECT ONE END TO A METAL PIECE ON THE MOTOR FOR GROUND. FASTEN THE OTHER END TO THE NEGATIVE BATTERY POST. IF THE LIGHT IS ON, THAT MEANS THERE IS A BATTERY DRAIN. LIGHT NOT ON, NO DRAIN. IF THE LIGHT IS ON, FIND THE POWER BOX NEAR THE BATTERY. PULL OUT ONE FUSE, IF THE LIGHT STAYS ON PUT HE FUSE BACK, PULL OUT THE NEXT FUSE. IF THE LIGHT STAYS ON PUT THE FUSE BACK . REPEAT THIS UNTIL THE LIGHT GOES OUT, OR GETS VERY DIM. OUT IS BETTER. WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT, THAT IS THE CIRCUIT THAT IS DRAINING THE BATTERY. REFER TO OWNERS MANUAL TO IDENTIFY THE CIRCUIT. IF THE LIGHT NEVER GOES OUT, REMOVE THE WIRES FROM THE ALTERNATOR. IF THE LIGHT GOES OUT, ALTERNATOR NEEDS REPLACING.

I have just had a new batt and altenator fitted to my 1.8 escort van and the batt keeps draining


It is highly likely that you have a drain.
  1. Check and make sure that the glove box is shutting off the light inside the glove box when you shut the door.
  2. Check and make sure the dome light is set on door or shuts off.
  3. If you have a test light and someone to help, you can check for a drain.
  4. Remove the negative battery terminal and place the test light between the terminal and battery post. If it lights up you have a drain.
  5. With a assistant to watch the test light, go to the fuse panel and start pulling a fuse out one at a time and then replacing, at the same time with the assistant watching to see if the test light goes out.
  6. When the test light goes out you have found you drain.

Need to change the fuse of the cigarette lighter in my 53 Ford Focus C-Max


For the cigarette lighter fuse on uk models ford focus there is another 'hidden' fuse box behind the glove box.
Just unscrew three screws at the hinge of the glove box.
Replace fuse 35 which is a 15amp fuse.
Hope this helps .
