Hi Ron!
What do you mean by saying Still Runs Dead? does it run? or doesn't start?
Come on Bro! give me a shot at sorting your problem, I'll hazard a guess it will not turn/crank??
Check your security! i.e. immobiliser or if cranking then cambelt break?
Wrong fuel?
Give me some info! I need some Fixya blue buttons pressed to get me back to Guru!

My battery keeps getting drained when my car is not running. auto place said that I have a drain when my car is not running and that my battery andalternator test good. What might be draining my batte

The only way to solve this problem is to isolate which circuit is causing the problem. To do this you must have an amp meter. (one that will read up to 10 amps minimum; I doubt you are drawing more than that) With key off, disconnect the positive cable to the battery and insert amp meter, positive meter cable to positive terminal and negative meter cable to positive cable on car. Normal draw will be in the milliamps. Anything 1/4 amp or more I would consider abnormal. Then star removing fuses (one at a time) until drain disappears.

When key is turned off, heater motor still runs. We I turn the fan up it will move to a higher speed. What is wrong?

Hello Faraway farm.
The problem is for sure a stuck blower motor relay.
The relay is mounted on the firewall under the hood near the top about the center.
This is allowing battery power to be directed straight to the blower motor.
If you give it a tap with a screwdriver handle it may temporarily shut off, but it will stick again.

I have not started my 911 in over 3 years. Oil has leaked out, battery is dead. What steps should I take to get this car up and running? How much would it cost if someone else did it for me?

first drain the gas out and put fresh in (hopefully the fuel hasent turned to varnish), it wont hurt to change the fuel filter, get a new battery, change the oil, check all the other fluids.

once you've done all that try to start it

Car won't start

Did you put a multimeter on the coil and check for voltage coming out of the coil? To do this put the ground lead of the meter on the battery ground, then turn the ignition on and touch the positive lead of the meter to the coil. It should read around 12 volts.

Charging Issues

the wire that tells it to excite is the battery wire to the alternator through the light bulb
not charging is a problem voltage regulator
while the alternator may be new if it requires an external regulator or internal regular is a problem
