Electrical problem Please Read.
I realize that a 1969 Dodge Monaco/Polara is not a 4x4, but I don't know where else to ask these questions. I know that one of you guys has experianced a similar problem.--Here goes--
Car runs well with the exception that there is a constant draw on the battery.(according to the ampmeter). Even with the key in the off position, the battery will drain overnight.
The first thing that I did was to remove all the fuses.--Still had drain.
Replaced external voltage regulater- Still had drain.
Changed generator to alternator.--No change in drain.
Checked as much of the wireing for shorts and burned wires as possible-- all looks good.
Pulled dash apart and didn't see anything wrong.
Disconnected old ampmeter and hooked up new aftermarket ampmeter and could not get power to the starter relay.
Re-installed old ampmeter and car would start again.
How do I locate the draw?
I have disconnected every wire that I can find to disconnect and am still showing the draw.
What to do???----Helllllp Please.
Thanks a lot
