Re: The Baffling Battery - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Hi Noel! Hope spring has finally sprung in NH. Sounds similar to the problem with my green 97 CSE that my son has at UNH. He ended up putting a new battery in the car and it still killed the new battery. That car has a parasitic drain on it that he believes was the ACC but I haven't gotten verification on that yet. The ACC was pulling 300+ mA before he pulled the fuse but when he put it back in, the drain was gone. I had him borrow a meter, set it on the DC amp setting and connect it in series between the battery lead and terminal. Then he started pulling fuses one at a time and checked the current reading. I don't know how else to narrow it down. Good hunting!
