This happened a couple of times, once at the gas station during a ~100 mile trip, so the battery should be charged. I searched under this topic and found good suggestions but I have a wrinkle, the battery (about 1 year old) is now, 2 days later, stone cold dead! So there is a current drain somewhere, could the s/s be the cause? Or the ignition switch? Or possibly just a coincidence? I should add much of the wiring is original! TIA...

P.S. it's 289 2V, auto, A/C, stock, no significant mods

Hey originalowner65. To tell if there is a drain, Disconnect the neg. bat. cable and attach a 12v test lite to the cable and stick the probe to the bat. term. If the test lite light's up you have a drain. Don't forget to shut the door's or pull the dome light bulb. Start pulling fuses, disconnect the alt. or reg. one at a time until the test light goes out. When the test light goes out, you found the circuit that's causing the drain. And don't forget a stuck cig. lighter. Good luck. C-ya Scott
