If you still get current drawing when car is turned off, you will have to start pulling electrical connectors and checking for draw. If no change, connect, and go to next connector, repeating until the draw stops, this is the bad component.
I would start with any aftermarket electrical components. Alarm's, radio's, etc. Then I would disconnect and check for draw on any component that get's power when car is off. Horn, light's, brake light switch (usually located towards top of brake pedal), radio, cigarette lighter, etc...Disconnect each component separately and check for current draw.

I have a 92 Eagle talon. Has Spark and good Compression. No fuel. New pump. Still No start. Pump will not turn on with ignition.

I would also check your fuses, if all your fuses are ok, then I would go back to the fuel pump double check you wiring. Take a multimeter and make sure your getting power to the pump, check to make sure Positive, Negative and Ground wires are in/connected to the correct connection/spot.

If none of that works, I can at least help you narrow down your problem area, if you are getting power to the fuel pump - your issue is either with your wiring or the pump is faulty -- If you are not getting power to the fuel pump your issue is back at the fuses boxes or there could possible be something wrong with your ignition (doubt it though)
--If your getting power to the pump and your positive that you have is wired correctly, I would take the pump back and try to exchange it, or have them test it.

Hope some of that helps!

I have a 97 eagle talon that turns over but won't

The Alternator will not affect spark as long as the battery has enough charge in it. You need to scan the electronic engine control computer (called the OBD2 system computer) with a code reader, if you have no spark there should be a fault code. You can buy a coder reader for the OBD2 system at any parts store for about $50

Well, if the link is burning, something major is wrong, replace the link alone and it would certainly fail again. I suggest that you pull the alternator and get it bench tested. I suspect diode problems...

Nothing happens when key is turned and clutch is down, no clicking, no lights, battery is fully charged and terminals are tight. 1994 eagle talon fwd 5 speed 1.8L

Sounds to me like the ignition module went out. I would test the ignition module, then I would test the clutch safety switch. If these test out fine I would test the starter and replace it if it is suspected to be bad.

No lights really seems like the battery might be dead, or a fuse is blown. Check the main and alt. fuses.

1994 eagle talon - no power - no dome light was driving, car stalled out, now won't start just bought last week

This sounds like the battery is shot, or dead. Either that, or the main or alternator fuse blew. This is most likely a dead battery though. Install a new battery, and everything should be back to normal.
