96 tercel keeps draining the battery. Alt. is new and fuse and breakers are good
Your going to need a volt/ohm meter for testing this prob. You need to put the meter on amperage mode and turn off all devices in car and close all doors and make sure key is off! Disconnect the negative battery cable and use the meter to hook from the battery negative cable to the other end of the cable, basically the meter is completing the circuit. Once you turn the meter on the vehicle will have to power down cause your meter connection will have woke up several modules, wait bout 5 min with the meter on, if the meter is 10 ohm scale a good reading should be around 0.025 to 0.001, if it's anything higher then pull fuses 1 by 1 until the draw falls into proper range, that will help you narrow down what circuit the draw is related to. Quick check, make sure the trunk light and or glove box lights are actually turning off, most common prob for current draw..
