Customer Question

2010 grande caravan, about1A constant drain on batt, goes away when I pull m12 and m13 fuses. These are amp/radio and ccn. Gonna look for amp module and unhook next. I think ccn is in cluster. Trying to determine if caused by electronics or wiring. O ya radio is dead most of time but comes to life occasionally. Current draw will make it go dead again.

Hello and welcome to just answer. The CCN is the instrument cluster. I have personally seen these clusters cause this type of drain. It is not the wiring. Now it is possible that the radio is the cause. Remove the radio and disconnect it. If the drain is still present, then remove the cluster and disconnect it. Which ever one reduces the drain, thst is the compnent to replace.
