It would be great to have a wiring harness that highlights all the always on wiring for just
this sort of problem.

Re: 1996 850 Wagon Service Light On Topic is solved

I probably should have started a new thread about the battery dying overnight.

After sleeping on it, I'm guessing that an always hot wire is pinched before the
fuse since pulling fuses didn't cure the high draw. Perhaps it has something to
do with the smashed door - we should replace it ASAP.

Obviously an amp-clamp is the way to measure the wires individually, wonder if the
parts stores have them to loan.

Re: 1996 850 Wagon Service Light On Topic is solved

Today the leakage is around 250 to 350 mA. Pulled every fuse in the engine compartment fuse block and none of them fixed it. Some made it jump up actually! Putting those back in and giving it time it came back to 250 -350 mA. Open to suggestions. Tempted to snip one at a time the bundle at the pos b...

Next question is which circuits are live when the key is off/out of the ignition?

Re: 1996 850 Wagon Service Light On Topic is solved

OK obviously there has to be some draw for the radio memory etc. and of course the fuse for amps in the meter was blown. This often happens when you leave the leads in the amp spot and try to read a voltage. Replaced the fuse and am now getting 500 to 800 mA or over half an amp which is not right. I...

Re: 1996 850 Wagon Service Light On Topic is solved

The Fluke meter reads to 3 decimal places on low 2 ohms full scale. It is difficult to
zero but got it within .002 of zero and there was really no difference across the crimp,
or from the terminal to the battery post. Looks good, there could of course be some
non-linear resistance, but who knows.

Re: Brake system questions Topic is solved

The bleeding problem was on another car and yes on that car replacing the hoses fixed it. Edit: just reread my thread on our 850 hoses and I was having a problem where the pedal would not go all the way down on one side, and there was only a small drip. Yes, the new hoses fixed that problem and it b...

Re: 1996 850 Wagon Service Light On Topic is solved

I found that the big red alternator wire goes to the starter post and back to the battery through the very large starter wire. This would explain the crimp getting hot when the battery was completely dead since the charge current would be very high. I will get out my bench Fluke meter that will read...
