94 CHEVY ASTRO FUSE DRAINING BATTERY-FUEL,OILGAUGES ARE OFF

1994 Chevrolet Other

I have a 94 Chevy astro van, 4.6L, 66kmiles, purchased used with 29K miles years ago. Ever since I have had it, I have had to remove the 20 amp fuse for the cigarette lighter, to keep the battery from going dead-I took it to a Chevy dealer-they hooked it up to diagnostics, and said they couldn't find anything wrong. Someone told me I needed a new key switch. The radio works, but the clock on the radio is always off-the clock was correct with the fuse in place, but like I said, I have to remove the fuse to keep the battery from dying. Also, at about 55K miles, my oil pressure gauge will jump from mid-low reading to mid-high reading-I always have the oil changed every 3Kmiles, and shortly after that happened, my fuel gauge has been faulty-first it would jump all over the place for a few thousand miles, and now it reads past over full, and is staying there. Any Sugg? Since I have taken it to one dealer, and they said they couldn't find out what was wrong, I was wondering if someone out there could give me some ideas. Thanks
