Butch,

I’ve never seen such a thing. The only ‘repair’ I’m aware of
on that assembly is the replacement of the micro-switch.–

On another issue, do you or anyone else have a diagram of the placement
of the wafers that are stacked on the rear of the hearter fan speed control
switch?

Bryan, jsut as I thought, alot of circuits to chase down. I willtake your
advice and try the door lock heaters first.

Butch,

By removing fuses #1 in the left and right fuse boxes I
believe you have eliminated the door guard lights and the
power windows and mirrors in the driver and front passenger
door switch packs.

Fuse #10 in the right side fuse box is a beaut!

Here are some of the things that the fuse serves ;-

  • Auxiliary side-light relay
  • Glove box lamp
  • Door guard relay (switching)
  • Dimmer switch (may explain your strange light thing)
  • Sun roof motor
  • A/C & Radio Relay (switching and power)
  • Door lock heater relay
  • Interior lights (roof, seat back etc)
  • Radio

Of all of those, I would bet the farm on the door lock
heater circuit being the cause of your excessive battery
drain. To prove/disprove that, pull the door lock heater
relay - the one in a black base on the passenger footwell
‘A’ post behind the trim and then conduct those tests again.
