Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Battery drains down enough over night that starter turns slowly or not at all. Using a test light, determined draw is from cluster fuse circuit. What to do next to pin point the draw?

If you have an aftermarket stereo, check that first for proper installation. Including proper grounds. A bad ground on the instrument cluster can make the bulbs glow dimly. Check for that after dark. I actually bought a '93 Caprice sedan new back in '93. The radio and headlight switch are the only two things that I can think of that are hot after the ignition is shut off. Unless, because yours is a wagon, there's a power tailgate release. HTH. -Jim

The battery drain ended up not being the problem. The problem was a bad cell in a 3 mo, old battery. Took battery back and was given a new replacement battery, problem solved.
