pssssssst you need a load to cause drain tom lmfao how can a coil which is open cause a drain when not spinning

As has already been stated, "of course diodes never fail shorted, right" , does this answer your question?

so where is the load?? LMFAO field voltage in new cars is controlled by the pcm
case closed
unless 1960 comes back LMFAO

The diodes on the load side of the alternator are on the stator. The alternator is a three phase type with a power diode pair for each phase (full wave rectifier). If one of these diode pairs short on any phase of the stator, there is a direct path to ground through these shorted stator diodes. These diodes are hard wired in and there is no break in the circuit if the car is off (other than high current fusible link/mega fuse). There is no current flow if the diodes are intact (non running car). If any phase pair is shorted, the current flow will be from the battery through the shorted diodes to ground. I this case, the "LOAD" is the shorted pair of stator diodes. Does it happen often? no. But its possible.

What coil is open? Face it "kid" you don't know SQUAT about auto-electric - or even cars in general.
