Battery Drain

I just bought a 95 D-90. The battery has drained two nights in a row. I have made sure all dome lights are off and radio is off. I cannot find the power drain. Any ideas would be welcomed. Thanks alot.

Chris - This is off subject, but I'm probably 10 min from you in Bath. I go to Hinckley Reservation a lot with the dogs. If you want to get together some time, e-mail me.

Pull the pos of the battery one night and then reconnect it when you go to start it in the AM. this will tell you if the battery is bad. Actually the easiest thing would be to take it to an auto-parts store that has a tester, they normally take the tester out to your car and check the batt, alt, and diodes all for free.

Thanks for all the tips. Took it to dealer and they found that one of the battery cables was loose at the car end and was the cause of the draw.

Thanks
Chris
