Car Model and Year

  1. OK Folks, Time to bug you all with a very specific problem. I searched the forum and could not find info on the vehicle/problem specific enough to give me a direction. The car is a 1995 Fleetwood Brougham. Ever since I have owned it (9 years) it has had a problem I just worked around, by driving it at least once a week. The dreaded "Parasitic Power Drain". Yeah, been dodging that one. Best fix known to man - drive it. But this week the battery went dead in 4 days. I have seen signs of fluctuation in severity and have been generally observing it all this time and poking around here and there. I didn't get lucky in those efforts. So today I opted to actually do a voltage drop test at the fuse box before getting more involved with relays, actual amperage draw testing etc. (Who wants to reset all the radio stations?) So... As a reference I chose the CCM Bat feed as a baseline measurement (inferred acceptability). At the fuse, it fluctuated between pulling .6 mA and 1 mA. I went with 1 mA and after referencing this table: fuse-charts.pdf (powerprobetek.com I see this translates to a draw of 135 mA. (inferred acceptability) With that in mind I went through all the fuses. A few were pulling some current. All of the problem candidates are listed below. (read from right to left maybe) I think you will agree one circuit stands out. Power Locks. mA Result Circuit Fuse Amperage Milli Volt measured 1713 PWR Lock 20 5.5 135 CCM bat 10 1 127 RAP Bat 25 0.3 93 Park lts 20 0.3 11 HVAC Bat 10 0.6 27 Tail lts 10 0.2 212 Wiper 25 0.5 2318 Total drain So, my question: Have any of you folks, especially the long time Caddy techs, seen this and might you be able to tell me where to go, other than to h***. LOL. I know I have to get into the weeds on this. I m just hoping for some direction to start with. The locks all function as designed. There is no obvious problem. I am not in the mode to tear into all the doors but may do so eventually because I want to get inside the RR door anyway. Meanwhile, I am pulling the power lock fuse to see what that buys me. I don't think I need to get into testing amperage draw while pulling fuses. Unless one of you tells me different, I think I have my culprit. Thanks in advance for any ideas and if you want to shoot me for asking this question, please do. It will save me some work. RC
