Hey folks I am new and I have electrical problems. 69 Camaro has power windows and power door locks problem is they are placing a draw on the battery. Wire is connected to the fuse panel near the top in I suppose a ignition plug bus. Any suggestions on curing the problem. Thanks

Door lock can only get power if switch is allowing current to flow ... The switch sends a pulse to trigger lock/unlock circuits ... check for bad switch ( may be even warm to touch ). BTW, did you install an alarm or keyless system to interface with the door lock? If so, that is another thing to take a look at. Also, if you remove door panels, feel the lock actuator. If it is warm, that can also be a sign that it is receiving some current ...
