You have to find out what all is on those fuse's and isolate the circuits till you find the draw . Looking at a electrical distribution chart would help ! Free diagrams at http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html
After entering vehicle info . under system click on electrical distribution , then under subsystem click on fuse panel . This will tell you what all that fuse power's up . Disconnect componets till draw goes away . Could be a bad BCM or some other module not powering down .

New alternator new battery 2 new sensors on a 2002 Cadillac and battery is draining over night


Check for lights that are on like sun visor lights in the vanity mirrors and other lights like console and glove box, it is always one of them that is the cause. You can also hook up a meter and watch the draw as you pull fuses to id the circuit that is the cause of the parasitic battery drain.

I have a 2003 doge neon sxt I did a draw test because the battery dies over night I pull out the FP/ASD fuse and it goes to zero what would that be thanks


The next step is to pull the ASD relay and the fuel pump relay one at a time to see if the draw goes away. The ASD and fuel pump relays should only be energized with the key on for a couple of seconds, anytime the engine is cranking, or anytime the engine is running. If the draw continues than you may have a PCM issue as the only wire that does not go through the two relays but is fused bu the same fuse goes to a battery positive input to the PCM.

a word of caution. It can take a half hour or more for modules to power down. if you are not waiting at least a half hour before checking your final amp draw you may be seeing a false reading.

98 Jimmy has a power draw it kills the battery within 12 hrs if you pull the 50 amp fuse for the int batt draw goes away any ideas


Yes Steve I do , that fuse supply's power to the I/P fuse block inside the vehicle . It powers AUX/PWR fuse #13 -20amp , RDO/BATT fuse #19 - 15amp ,MIR/LKS fuse #7 - 5amp , CTSY/LP fuse #8 - 15 amp , CIGAR/LTR fuse #2 15 amp , PWR/LKS fuse #14 15 amp , HDLP/SW fuse #1 - 10amp .Do you know where the I/P fuse block is ? You would need to do a parasitic draw test ! This involves hooking up a amp meter in series with the negative battery post an negative battery cable . Pulling each one of these fuses till the battery draw stops ! How To Perform Parasitic Draw Test EricTheCarGuy check out Eric the car guy's video on the subject !

Battery is new, has been charged and checked several times, it has a intermentant draw. i pull #2 maxi fuse and draw goes away. ive pulled all small fuses with no result


Check your ground (the negative cable on the battery). See if you have continuity between engine and battery negative terminal (-).

I have a 3.34 amp drain while the grand marquis is turned off.. resulting in brand new dead batteries.... need to know how to find the drain. please and thank you.


the easiest way to start is to pull each fuse one at a time and see if the draw goes away. if it doesn't than reinstall that fuse and pull the next. Repeat this process until the draw goes away. Once you know what fuse stops the draw you can figure out what that fuse powers up and move on to systematically disconnecting each one of those components until the draw goes away.

Before I do anything with a draw I like to check things like under hood lights, glove box lights, and trunk lights to make sure they are turning of when they are supposed to.

When you figure out what fuse stops the draw post a reply and I'll be more than happy to assist you on the components that fuse protects.

Battery drain... fuse blew - connect to ballist resister


Do you know anyone with a ammeter? You need to hook one up to the battery to check for draw. If the draw with the key off is more than .025 amps, then pull one fuse out at a time till the draw goes away. When it goes away, that will tell you what circuit to check. Hope this helps. As for fuse #3, I would have to look at a wiring diagram for that.
