you have a parasitic draw somewhere. in that vintage of a vehicle it shouldn't be to hard to locate. check for rubbed wires and check your fuses. a blown fuse may lead you to the circuit that is causing the problem. if not, check out videos by ericthecarguy.com and scottykilmer.com. they both have great ones on how to locate a parasitic draw.
