I installed a new battery, starter and key switch. The battery
keeps going dead. Might be 1 day and might be 4 days but until
the battery goes dead it starts and runs good. I have put a meter
(0-400 scale) on to see if the battery had a draw on it but found
nothing. The battery goes dead when the car is off.

I bet your alternator is bad. Have it checked. If the battery is
going dead when the car is off, there is a current leak somewhere.
Chances are it is outside the battery, especially if it happened
with two batteries. You can try disconnecting the battery at
night and see if that fixes it.

Have your alternator checked. There are diodes in it that if they
burn out, will drain the battery when sitting.

LMFAO
tom ya ****ed up again
it wont drain your batteries
all ciruciuts are OPEN ya tard
its called a SWITCH
as in ya SWITCH it OFF when ya turn the key
the guy has a parasitic drain

Jeff and Tom are correct; Have the alternator checked. The positive
battery terminal is directly connected to the alternator output terminal
with no intervening switches. When the engine is off, the alternator's
diodes prevent battery charge from draining back through the alternator.
If any diode is defective, the battery will discharge through that diode.
Most auto parts stores will test your alternator free of charge.

If it is not the alternator, something is on, and drawing current:

Glovebox light? Interior lights? Parking lights?
Miswired key switch? Trunk light? Radio? What else?

Good luck.

Re: 1992 Towncar (Battery problems)

I had the alternator check and it check out ok. I've test for a draw but
my meter shows none, unless it is happening at a different time. Battery
is unhook for now to see if it will stay charged.

A diode in the alternator can leak to ground, you idiot.

Re: 1992 Towncar (Battery problems)

so far the only parasitic drain I see anywhere is an asshole in cahnahdah
that goes by the name hurc, and changes his screen name every day.
