Purchased 1991 Mercury Cougar LS with3.8 V-6. Previous owner states car sat for 4 years. Replaced battery with new and car started. Notice gauges are wacked out. Showing car was hot and had full fuel tank (only put in 5 gals) etc. Alternator tested fine. All wiring harnesses under hood new, in steering column new. Replaced electronic and key lock ignitions. New fuses and fuse box. New head light switch. All lights fine. Problem is when brakes are pushed the car dies. Try to roll down power window car dies. Open door to where dome lite comes on, car dies. Turn signal makes dome lite blink like signal indicator light. Appears to be parasitic draw but cannot pinpoint where. Any suggestions?
have the same problem?
