Question about Mercury Mystique
Here is a procedure to isolate a battery drain I found elsewhere and has already proved very useful several times.
Remove negative battery cable from the battery. Using a 12-volt test light, hook one end to the negative battery post the other end to the negative battery cable you just disconnected. The test light will glow or “light” if there is a drain. If the “light or glow” is faint, that is probably normal draw for the clock or computer. If the “light or glow” is bright, then there is a large drain. That should be corrected. Now start removing and replacing the fuses one by one until the light goes out; that one will be the circuit with the drain. ***Remember to hold in the button in the door jam for the interior lights.***
