Battery indicator light on dash lit up intermittently for several days, so tested the charging system, then the battery with a load-test, both of which were good. One morning the battery was dead. Tested circuits for current draw by connecting ammeter between battery terminal and cable while pulling fuses one at a time. Isolated problem to fuse labelled "JCT". What is "JCT" and where should I be looking for this fault?
