Haunted car

Our 2000 van has started acting weird. The interior lights stay on, the power windows stopped working, The blower comes on for a second or two when the van is started. The battery drains when the car is shut off. These are a few of it’s problems.

You have wiring harness problems. Tracking them down might be best done by a shop that works on automotive electrical systems.

Thank you for your response, but I can’t afford to go to a shop right now. I’m thinking there must be a LOT of wiring, and I would be charged accordingly. Maybe I should just park it in a bad neighborhood, and leave the keys in it. :slight_smile:
