Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
First thing check you cigarette lighters make sure none are stuck push in or bad. If you do not find any problems there, then you can try taking you negative battery cable off and placing a test light in between the cable and the battery post. You will want to pull out one fuse at a time. Watch your test light; it should get real dim when you find the right circuit that is causing the pull on the battery. The light will not go completely out unless you pull the fuse that carries the memory for the radio out, then it my go out all the way out. There usually is a small amount of voltage being use because of the radio but that will not cause the battery to go down. The battery can carry that. This is the easiest way I can tell you. There are other things you can try but they require special equipment most people don’t have or the knowledge to read wiring diagrams. Nor do they have a working knowledge of electricity to trouble shoot this kind of problem. If you can by chance find the circuit that is causing the voltage draw then you might find the wire or component that is causing you your problem. Look for wires that may have bad spot in them form rubbing on something and laying on metal. If you cannot find it by doing this you will probable have to take it to a shop.
P.S. you don’t have a big amp in this do you because they will kill a battery in about 5 minutes, if you are playing it without the engine running.
