Intermittent Battery Discharge - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I've been fighting an intermittent flat battery after parking for as little as a couple of days. Perhaps someone has some ideas or run into this before.
Here is what I've done so far.
1. replaced battery (old one was trashed by all the discharge cycles)
2. replace alternator brush pack (was marginal)
3. load tested both battery and alternator output with carbon pile tester.
4. checked drain when parked with ignition off (low mA range from clock/alarm)
I'm thinking the it might be the cooling fan relay sticking on or perhaps an interior light timeout relay. Only seems to happen once in a while so hard to pin down.
Anyone have any ideas?
