Just bought a 96 blazer and now the battery gets drained everytime the car is off for more than a few hours. Everything I can see is off, what the hell can be draining my battery. I jumpstart it and the battery charges enough for me to start it again within a few hours but thats it....need help please.

take off the pos(+) terminal- take an ampmeter set it to the hiest setting (useually 10 amps)-place it in series from the battery to the cable and see how much its drawing . if its more than a few milli-amps start pullin fuses to see what gives. e-mail me or pm me let me know what you find. JOHN
