New to the Jeep world, bought a 1984 cj7 258 4 spd.
All the gauges work inside to my amazement, lol.............
The only aftermarket items on the jeep are a winch and interior light wired to the headlight switch. Both were disconnected and still experiencing the drain.
The problem is that I have a drain on the battery somewhere, battery is dead within 1-2 days while parked.
Here is what I have done....please help
New battery and had the alternator checked at two seperate shops and was told it was in need of replacement. So I plan on removing and having it tested off the jeep tomorrow but in the mean time I need some direction.
Next disconnected the negative battery cable and connected a meter and removed fuses one at a time with no change in what appears to be a 3.6 amp draw on the system with ignition off, according to the local parts store computer.
What is causing this drain?
Before you guys tell me to search the site, I have spent the past week searching and reading this site and my Haynes repair manual with no results.
Could a bad alternator cause this or is there something else?
Thanks in advance!
I also apologize if there is some glaringly obvious that I have overlooked.
