I have a 1982 300D-Turbo, Diesel.
Usually, I only drive 1 mile to work and 1 mile back.
It seems that after a few days, if I only drive to work and back, my battery
gets drained. I have a new battery, and new alternator.
I also have the following, in which I think it may be related to:
1. The blower motor switch, in the key/ignition switch doesn't work. Which
means when I turn on the key, and turn on the blower motor, it will not
work. However, I put a wire from the battery + to behind the fuses, where
the blower motor switch is, (yes, this is my hack, until I can get a new
igintion/key switch). So this means that with the key in or not, I can turn
on and off the HVAC system any ol time I want.
Could this be draining the battery when it's not on?
Also I have an Amp, that IS hooked up correctly, so it only turns on when
the radio is on, but this could be draining the battery if I am listening to
music durring my 1 mile trip???
Anyways, so I think it's my "hack" I'm wondering if there is any one that
would know, or where should I put the volt meter to trouble shoot this one
Could I put a switch in somewhere I could turn off my hack fix?
