Jim , the resistor plug has been unplugged as a matter of fact it was in the center console. I reinstalled it to see if it would change the outcome of a draining battery, it didn;t.
then you need to hook a meter to the battery and you can start removing fuses until you find the one that stops the voltage then trouble shoot that circuit
Jim, if the A/C system is turned off or at least a temp. setting is put in that would not require use of the A/C with the van running would i be able to see the clutch engaged on the compressor.
jim, I have isolated the circuit to the vsa controll system. How do i reset this so it will not draw the battery down. With this answer I can gladly accept your answer for services rendered.
Jim, Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you, I am a corporate pilot for Lowes Market and I often get called out spur of the moment. It turned out not to be the vsa system after all. The mechanic was looking at the wrong fuse block slot on the fuse block cover. Instead it was the rear defroster system. The voltage drop test is exactly what he did and isolated it to a relay controlling the rear defroster. What caused the relay to stay stick in the closed position was the result of a test light probe being driven through the side of the relay case and causing an internal short in the relay. I.E. mechanic induced failure. I have a new relay on order and that will fix the problem. With the stuck relay in place the amperage draw is 12amps per hour thus every three hours it will drain the battery. Thank you for your help and your answere to do a voltage drop test.
