1990 Cherokee 4 L str6cyl…again
this winter I had a problem with battery draining after 2-3 days of not running.
when the temp dropped to near 0 degrees F , it would drain overnight.
since it has warmed up this problem has disappeared, or at least has slowed to the point of not being noticeable.
I am leaning toward the problem being in the alt., leaking current due to bad diodes, not another parasitic draw.
I understand that this happens with Cherokees due to alt. tending to get wet frequently due to location.
my question is…, does the fact that this happens more quickly, depending on outside temp being colder, lead you all to lean toward the diodes in the alt. causing this drain?
