Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
Here's a suggestion with very little special tools that you can do. Take the negative cable on your battery off. With a test light attach the aligator clip to the metal part of the cable (Where it connects to the battery). then take the pointy part of the test light and touch the battery where the cable connects. If it lights up that means that there is something pulling juice from your battery (a draw). Make sure all your doors and lights and anything electrical is off when you do this as this will show up as a draw. If you do find that you have a draw, the easiest thing to do is take a fuse out. If the light goes out then you will know what circuit it is on. repeat pulling the fuses one at a time until you are able find out which circuit it is on. Now when you do locate the circuit the draw is on, Now comes the fun part and that is figuring out what's on that circuit and test one thing at a time on that circuit until you are able to locate the componant that is doing it. there may be wiring problems and not the componant itself so yes this is the tricky part and you may need a mechanic (who knows what they are doing) to do the rest. Worst case you could always pull that fuse when your not using the car to stop the draw until you can repair the problem. I hope you were able to understand all that and I hope it helps. Good luck.
