Question about Cars & Trucks
I just changes barring and now battery keeps draining was told to look at fuse box but what keeps power with key off
The most common reason is the interior lights are on, this may be the visor lights for the vanity mirrors.

Yes you do need to remove the brace "bar" above the battery. If I am not mistaken, the fuse box also has to be relocated for clearance. One thing you must do before you start is disconnect the negative cable from the battery. The negative cable is the black one. One of the oldest rules when working on any vehicle battery is negative is disconnected first and reconnected last. Since the vehicle is "negative ground" it will make it impossible to short negative to ground. The bolts that hold the bar in place are either 13mm or 15mm. The battery is held in place with a plastic wedge that is held down with a 13mm bolt. The battery cables are 8mm.

try starting your car and letting it run for a min disconnect the bat and if it dies then you need to find a bad wire or a bad ground to the alternator. something might not be telling it to put out any power to re-charge your batt

pull key out of ignition and wait 2 minutes for the can system to go to sleep(instrument cluster is off) and all doors are shut-no consumers on should be approx. 50 ma.
