96 850TLA, recently the battery goes dead after a week of not driving. When I disconnect the battery, it stays fully charged. I'm looking for ideas on the cause of this new drain on the battery. Any ideas, where should I start checking?<br>Thanks

Re: battery discharge (gatesvillejohn)

Check your glove box light. Seriously the little off switch tends to go bad or the door doesn't close as tight and the little light stays on.

Typically the next step is to put an ammeter in line and see if the current is higher than it should be. (ideally less than 50 mA, no more than 100). If the current is high, start pulling fuses until you find the circuit that's drawing high and start troubleshooting from there.
