The fuse box inside the cabin on the passenger side near the floor on the left. In there are many keyed circuits, weather the is one that can handle that amperage I dont know. I would suggest for safety sake use a relay that can handle that current draw and wire the coil of the relay to any keyed circuit. You can then wire the contractor of the relay directly to the battery and draw as much current as you want. Remember to use fuses on both the coil side and the contractor side of the relay and if you are running a wire to the battery be sure to put a fuse there AT THE BATTERY as well.

Voltage draw down found!
1) repaced bad battery
2) rechecked voltage draw...


Voltage draw down found!
1) repaced bad battery
2) rechecked voltage draw still showing 12 volt drain with all under hood fuses, relays, and interior fuses and relays pulled.
3) Computer was the 12 Volt drain, & had to reprogram itself.
4) gave the new battery a good long charge, reinstalled the battery into the vehicle.
5) Hooked the battery up, pulled the keys out of the ignition, close and lock all doors with auto door lock. Waited minimum of 20 min so the computer would go back into the sleep mode.
6) after 20 minute wait, rechecked the voltage draw by removing the neg battery cable from the battery, hooking volt meter + lead to battery cable end, and neg lead to battery neg post, nothing showing or zero reading.
7) Hooked the neg cable up to battery, started the truck and let the engine idle to normal run temp, then fast idled 1200-1300 rpms for 2 minutes, then drove the vehicle for 5+ miles and alternating speeds. All appears back to normal now. Alt showing 14.2 to 14.4 volts, and no other problems.
After all of the afore mentioned, my problems began with a bad battery cell, thus caused my computer to have the memory reset.Until the computer was reset, I had a 12v continious draw down! I got this info from a repair manual, that I purchase sometime ago. Thanks for your alls help........EJB

New battery went dead. pulled the fuses and checked for a short. Found the fuse that shows a short just don't know what it goes too


A voltmeter is NOT the correct tool to check for an "ignition-off draw". A voltmeter will show 12 volts if ANYTHING is operating.

There are some things that are SUPPOSED to keep operating when the vehicle is shut off. These include, but are not limited to:
> Powertrain Control Module keep-alive memory
> Radio preset memory
> Clock
> Security/ alarm system
> Remote control recievers (door locks, etc.)

What you need to know is how many AMPS are being drawn from the battery when the vehicle is shut off. This is done by using a shunt bar connected between the battery terminal and the battery cable connector.

Set the ammeter to the lowest setting (usually 2 or 5 amp scale) Connect the ammeter leads accross the shunt bar. Turn off all electrical accessories, ignition switch, etc. and wait for a minimum of 45 minutes for all of the computer systems to go into "sleep" mode. Then open the shunt bar and read the amperage.

The "rule of thumb" is 300 milliamps (or 0.3 amps). This is where you have a problem. Anything less than this is not a problem and is not the cause of your dead battery. My experience is that most vehicles built in the last 15 years or so, will usually measure around 150 milliamps if there is no aftermarket equipment installed. Please note that even this 150 milliamps will measure as 12 volts if measured with a volt meter. A 2 amp draw will also measure as 12 volts....However, a 2 amp draw will kill your battery overnight and the 150 milliamp draw won't.

Suburban towing package fuse box location


2005 Suburban Z71 4WD I had similar situation. No 12 volt positive to 7 trailer. Under my hood at the fuse panel, the red 12v + wire was connected to Stud # 1 which is on the left side of fuse box. There is a square fuse right next to this stud. I put a 40 amp fuse in it. I use this power to charge a battery in a trailer as I am hauling.

The cruise control on my 2005 grand am does not work. I checked for 12 vdc on the cruise control module (pin #F on the plug connector) but no volts. The fuses are good and I get power to pin A, B, & C...


Hi, you should have battery voltage at pin F when the key is on. Since you have power thru the clockspring, the problem has to be between the interior fuse box and the control module.The wire passes thru the fuse box under the hood. What I would do is trace the brown wire back to the fuse box and see if it has power coming into the box. If not, then I would trace it to the connector or *********** at the firewall. Sometimes a wire will be broken inside the insulation.

As reported before, there is no power in interior,vehicle will not start.,battery is fully charged. there is 12 volts at battery , and at starter relays bottom terminai,no voltage at top terminal....


check for corrosion on the large positive wire that leads to the starter. allthough you have 12 volts, but corrosion cant handle amperage. or it may be possible that you just need a new starter, you can remove the starter, and apply a seperate power source like a jump pack or seperate battery to verify that the starter is ok
