Sorry to tell you an open circuit will not drain your battery as no voltage flows through it. usually this kind of problem would be more related to corrosion not letting it charge correctly or a bad alternator that is not putting out enough voltage to charge it as you drive.

We have a 1995 GMC Safari Regel van. When we were driving the lights went out and the motor shut down all at the same time. Van won't start and the lights won't come on. How do we fix it?


Check the fusible links at the battery and at the starter.Just pull on the red wires and if one comes apart easily it's a blown fusible link.

My battery in my 1994 Safari Van keeps draining after being charged. What could be the cause of this? It's a brand new battery.


Either a shorting wire off a wiring loom somewhere in the electrics or a boot light or internal light not switching off.did you recently fit a new item to the vehicle as this could be part of the problem.

Replace starter in 1994 gmc safari van


  1. dissconnect the negitive battery terminal.
  2. raise van and support with stands.
  3. remove the two bolts on the starter and pull it out and down,
  4. the starter dropped as far as it will go this way you have room to remove the wires from the starter.
  5. reverse directions to install new one, NOTE; if more room is needed you will have to remove the metal flywheel cover, hope this is helpful.

Need help replacing fusible link connector


It doesn't matter because they all carry +12V to the respective circuits. What does matter is which fusible link goes to which circuit (assuming they are different) but if you didn't cut them off, then they should still be connected to the correct circuits.

Battery drains in 1994 safari van


It is not the fusible link, if that was the problem it would not start at all. There is an open circut some where that is draining the power. Start disconnecting non esential devices, radios, TVs that sort of thing until you trace it down. And if you have an alarm on it check that first.

1994 GMC Safari Oil leaked out for no reason. Put more oil in...look under van and oil is leaking like a water fall. Turn Van off oil leak calms to a trickle. Other than the oil water fall the van runs...


Check the oil filter adaptor bracket. My 1993 Safari had the same problem, and the adaptor bracket and seal were bad. Replacement fixed the leak.

1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Battery Draining


yes. You just need an honest, qualified mechanic. I'm not saying your last mechanic was not qualified, but any mechanic should know how to search and test for an unintended drain. Sounds like that is what you have.

Go on youtube and watch videos of "unintended, or parasitic drains"-there are hundreds of them. Any mechanic with a good multi-meter should be able to find it pretty quick-within an hour or two.
I wouldn't worry about the AC-your car is too old for it-too easy to have problems with a car that old, although if you have enough money, you can do anything. Just saying it would be expensive. The window problem is not an expensive fix, probably needs a new window motor. yours probably has worn brushes. The rear defroster is easy to troubleshoot with a multi-meter. Keep at it and you will have a good car.

Lose power to half of the systems


My solution turned out to be a fusible link behind the battery. Cost me $55 for a tow and another $75 to track down the problem. I wonder if yours is a loose connection on the same line as the fusible link. Or maybe yours has a circuit breaker. My question is, why did the fusible link go in the first place, and what caused the relays to click off and on--maybe the computer got confused?
