Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country
Something keeps draining the battery. Replacing some wires in the engine department hasn't helped. Probably problem elsewhere in the electrical system. Is an electrical schematic available for this Model.
Thanks for your help
I had a problem at one time that was with an after market ignition switch...it would even with the switch off allow power to the computer and even the fan blower as if it was on. The problem you are having could be many things but just thought I would mention that one I had. I eventually had to open it back up and put it back in place correctly after it had slipped out of place.

You may have what is called a "Parasitic Draw". A draw can come from several different things. It would be best to have your car analyzed at the dealer. However if your going to do your own analysis start by using a power meter attached to battery to determine how much of a draw you have. I had a 4.99 draw on my jeep. You should assume the common thing first the altenator.
I then opened the fuse box located under hood and also on passenger side near carpet (right side). I proceeded to remove each fuse or module one at a time to determine where the draw is. This should pinpoint the problem. If not, then try the engine module located under the hood on back wall passenger side.

I'm assuming you've cleaned your battery terminals and re-tightened them? And checked your alternator?
