Re: Weak starting

I swapped out a column, and used the ignition switch that came on it and it was the same after that.

The car has always been this way. Different cables, clean block, new starter, known good battery. The cables were used though, so they could be corroded inside.

And, after two days of sitting, the battery is always dead. So, could something be draining the power after its driven and sits for just a little while. I need to research the proper way to find a parasitic draw.

Re: Weak starting

If you have a multi-meter, set is up for DC amps, and put it in between the battery cable and the battery + terminal. Do NOT try to start the engine, or use any heavy electrical loads, or you may destroy the meter. You should only see a fraction on an amp normal draw. If you have anything more than that, pull the fuses one-by-one until the amp draw disappears. If you have any aftermarket electronics in the vehicle, don't forget to pull any inline fuses.
