Question about Acura Legend
I disconnect the battery since I don't want it drained like it happened before. I definetely cannot and don't want to drive the vehicle in this condition. What causes this problem??
An electrical current drain
eg: something other than Computer Memory
& your clock is staying on or not timing out
You shouldn't have more than 35 to 80 Milli-Amps
all the time,depending on the vehicle

The problem is the car think the park brake is on (intermittently). I would check the park brake switch, perhaps it's loose, or perhaps the park brake is pushed down to the first "click" spot. Also check the wiring connection to the switch, and the wiring nearby. Good luck!

The alternator is usually the culprit when nothing else has been modified. However yo mentioned changing it. (actually the regulator inside the alternator usually fails and drains the bat when the engine is off) However there is a very common issue with mid 90's gm trucks, the brake switched go bad and cause the brake lights to stay on. Try lightly touching the brake pedal and see the lights go off after slowly releasing it. the fix is a new switch that fairly easy to replace . These are mounted on the brake pedal arm just above your foot.
Aside from these two issues, you will need to trace the problem to its source by taking items out of service one at a time by removing fuses. not that the engine computer and the radio will always draw power at start up and a tiny clock current thereafter. But there should not be anything else. The voltage guage is not very accurate in the dash. Use a volt meter to watch voltages unplug fuses until the voltage goes up. without the vehicle running, voltage should be between 11 and 12 volts on a charged battery.
And finally, check the grounding. There should be a ground strap between the engine and vehical body in addition to the battery cable. If this is broken or missing it will cause errant readings of voltage in the dash.
I hope at least one of these tips works out for you.

Get under the dash ad look at your brake pedal lever. You will see a stop light switch that screww into a bracket with a 'button' sticking out of it. if pulling up on the brake pedal (even slightly) solves your problem, then the switch needs adjusting closer to the brake lever. If adjusting does not stop problem then replacement of brake light switch may be required.
