I have had numerous battery draws but this one has me stumped. If I disconnect the pos cable from the Bat. and run a test light between the post and the cable when I touch the post with the probe the light is real bright then goes out totally until I remove the probe and then touch the post again does the same thing. Any ideas on what this could be? Thanks

Sounds like a bad capacitor somewhere, like the stereo. Try pulling 1 fuse at a time out of the fusebox and rerunning the lamp test. When you find which pulled fuse causes the problem to stop, then you know what circuit to look at. Let us know which fuse it is and we can help you some more!

Probably the memory or clock in your stereo.
If the draw stops, don't worry about it.
Pull the fuse on the radio like torch says to isolate the draw. If it's the radio, it's probably normal.

The older I get, the faster I was!
