Power drain through fuel pump fuse


Asked by Oct 15, 2016 at 07:45 PM about the 1993 Chevrolet C/K 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 93 Chevy 1500. My battery started dying overnight. I went and got a
new battery, and the next morning it was dead. I put an ammeter in series and
see a 3.5A drain. When I pull the fuel pump fuse, the drain goes to .1A. Any
ideas where to look now?
