Question about Ford Fairmont
If you have a draw such as the glove box or the trunk light even the courtesy lights not making the connection necessary to close the circuit overnight you will drain the battery ...1st ensure you have a sufficient draw that will cause this some things such as the radio settings clock will allow a slight draw on it or even the security system ...make sure either with someone inside the trunk that the light inside goes out when the hatch is closed ...as well as the glove box door light goes out and the interior lights .....if you disconnect the negative terminal on the battery you can connect a test light from clamping the terminal end of the cable to the light and the pointy end to the battery terminal if your light ,/.light-up you have a draw simply remove the fuses one by one until the light goes out and when you finally get the light to go out read the fuse upon which you pulled to get the light to go out this will be the area of the draw check the area such as weather or not the switch is properly making contact to the switch if not an adjustment can usually be made to correct this on other situations such as a door switch as they are plastic a helper piece of tubing or even a washer may do the trick
