93 Taurus Wagon, 140k miles
Battery goes flat when left for 48 hours
When I put an ammeter in series with the battery current drain is 1.2
amp with ignition off and doors closed
Battery is new
Alternator has been replaced
Current drain remains same at 1.2 amps if alternator terminals are
If I remove Fuse #8, battery drain drops to 0.39 amp
Owners handbook says Fuse #8 covers
Chime for keys in igniton
Keyless entry system (this car does not have one)
Online Workshop Manaul says Fuse #8 covers
Glove Compartment Lamp
Luggage Compartment Lamp
Instrument Panel Courtesy Lamps
Illuminated/Keyless Entry Module
Only thing I have discovered is that the turn signals do not work,
neither left nor right. However the warning flashers DO work.
Have tried removing the electronic flasher unit but that makes no
difference to the current drain problem.
Have also disconnected the Multi Function Switch but this also has no
effect on the current drain problem
I will take a look at other systems listed for the fuse number but I
suspect the non working turn signals is where the problem lies.
Anyone have any bright ideas.
