Question about 1989 Buick Park Avenue
My battery keeps being drained after someone broke into my car and stole my stereo equipment . I have put a new battery in and everything.
A possibility is an ignition fuse has blown when the radio was removed. Does the battery light light up when the ignition is turned on. The alternator needs that light to energise and charge, (without it you just run the battery flat), failing that charge the battery, connect an amp meter in series, with every thing switched off, should have a reading of about 0.5 amps (Time clock). If above 2amp that is what is draining the battery. Watch meter and pull fuses one at a time, when the reading drops, that is the circuit/equipment that's causing the trouble.

If you have a test light available disconnect the negative cable and connect the test light to the cable and to the battery.If it lights up you have a parasitic load.Something is using power when it shouldn't be. A very dim light or acceptable parasitic draw is about. .015 amps depending on vehicle options it could be all the way up .025amps. If the test light is pretty bright it has a large load pulling it down. Finding parasitic draws can be quite time consuming. You can leave the test light connected and start pulling fuses one at a time till the light goes out or gets very dim. This can help you find what circuit is causing the draw. Once you find that particular circuit you will need to find out what services that circuit supports. Example the cigarette lighter may run the accessory lights such as the dome. You will need to find out what is on the circuit to start figuring out which component is dragging the battery down.

Any car with a Factory Anti-Theft System does this whenever battery power is lost. If your owners manual doesn't address this, you will have to contact a GM Dealer to get the system reset. Sorry!
