Is this a drain?

My cigarette lighter is wired it has power constantly. If nothing is plugged in while the car is off is there still a drain? Just curious. Thanks. Brian.

Don't push it in and there is no drain.

Re: Is this a drain?

If you look at the fuse block..one side is live all the time...cig lighter, hazard lights, interior lights and a few other things.
The orange wire that goes to the cig lighter is live.
To find the drain, put a amp on the battery + to the battey +cable, then pull all the fuses one at a time...the confirm by putting them back one at a time.
Another issue is if the battery is dirty been painted or something like that...using the volt meter from the + put the - of the meter on the battery case, test areas getting closer and closer to the terminals.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative

Re: Is this a drain?

The car stays on a battery tender so it is never dead. I just diddn't know if it was pulling power when off. Thank you both. Brian.
