Question about 2000 Dodge Durango
In my 2000 Durango, after changing the battery it again failed... figured out that the rear window wiper motor has aged so much it had difficulty wiping, then the last time I used it, it couldn't make it back to the "parked" position so it was always sucking juice to try and make it the last 1-2" so it could release from the battery grid.
Since I have yet to replace that wiper motor, I removed the top trim panel on the back hatch. Once panel removed, from the outside looking at the back of the truck, on the top, left near the hinge you will see a modular connector, unplugging this disconnects the rear wiper from the battery curcuit.
Perhaps if not the rear wiper, a door window button (any of the 4 doors) is jammed with a pebble or something, always trying to make the window go up?
If the vehicle was broken into, perhaps there was some components in the door that were shorted.
It's likely the source of the power drain is coming from an "Always On" curcuit, or a part that has a direct connect to the battery (through fusepanel).
There is a "small component" fuse panel at the drivers side, door hinge area. A second one for "large draw" components is under the hood, drivers side, close to the windshield (but actually above the wheel).
