1982 Jeep CJ5 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 160000 miles
My jeep will have a dead battery if it sits for more than a few days.
I have followed the procedure to isolate a battery drain. By placing a meter in line of the negative battery terminal and battery lead. I have a drain of.8 amps reading on the meter. There is no clock, radio, or other electronics installed in the jeep.
The 20 amp Fuse labeled Park-Tail was pulled and the amps drop to near 0.
I followed the wiring diagram in an attempt to identify where the amps are going.
I have disconnected at the different harnesses; all wires to the rear of the jeep (including brake, reverse, turn, running lights, fuel sending unit signal wire), same for front lights, and under-dash harness. Further I followed the wiring diagram through the fuse block to the alternator and disconnected it and the voltage regulator.
With all of the above done I do not see the.8amp draw change. It only changes to 0 when I remove the previously mentioned fuse.
Any ideas where this battery draw could be going?
have the same problem?
