gotta 12 volt test light? Disconnect your pos. battery cable. Hook up test light between the wire terminal and the battery terminal. If the test light lights up you have a parasitic draw on your battery. Pull fuses one after another till light goes out. This fuse will be your problem circuit.

It's a jeep thing, I do understand!! 89 YJ Laredo,4.2L carburated. Chrome bumpers and grill. 31 AT's on 9x15 chrome modulars. Mustang GT buckets. 3" body lift and 1 1/2" shackle lift. Completely emission & computer free. Runs great!! Took the shackle lift out, they suck!!
Soon to be SOA with 35's
