The current draw went down slightly to 2. A couple of things come to mind on this problem. Heated windshield wiper fluid over heating and causing a fire, headlamps flickering on and off up to simply going out, interior lights coming on for no reason and not going off.

I had this problem before and while I had a lot of help diagnosing the problem, it stopped before I could find the problem. So I first looked at the antenna, made sure the wasn't any current or power going through the cable, Then I disconnected the negative cable on the battery and tested the current draw. Even rarer would be a power door switch stuck.
It seems to me that the car just will not shut down. The battery may start the car fine in fully charged condition, but if the alternator is not putting out the proper voltage and amps, it will not only not recharge, driving the car will continue to discharge the battery. I'm switching to Lincoln after this my third Cadillac. Turned off the easy exit seat, put the fuses back in Radio and Seat Mem Started it up. Performing a draw test will tell the technician how much current is flowing while the vehicle is off. Don't try to start the car in this configuration.
The only fix was to buy another radio. First of all have you battery tested to make sure it is up to the task of holding the parasitic loads this car has. One example of this would be where a wire was pinched between two grounded metal body components, or pulled tightly around a sharpe edge of a sheet metal component, with a resultant pinching, chaffing, or cutting of the wire insulation allowing only minimal minimal contact to the grounded component.

If it do … esn't work at that point You've already got it out so go get a rebuild or new one and put it in. Once it starts you may not have the problem for a long time. Connect a Voltmeter from the wire to earth and you have the Altenator output. Is there some conclusive test I can perform with just meter and basic diagnostic tools? Use a watch or clock and make it at least 5 or 10 minutes; this will put just a couple of ampere-hours on the drained battery but enough to start the car, with the fully-charged battery helping out.
If you are sure that everything is off, including hood light, dome light, glove box light, trunk light, then your best to take it into an independent repair shop and have them troubleshoot it. At least you are getting closer. The voltage regulator is built into the alternator. My best guess is that you have a problem with the compressor wiring on the automatic level control. I would install into the light a 9V battery powered recepticle to hold computer and radio station memory. You probably have a battery drain from a defect.

If the battery still won't do anything and you are still putting 1,000 amps through the jumper cables, it is dead and must be replaced. That will at least get you close to the issue. It costs nothing and they can usually get you a diagnosis. These fail and cause drain. This should draw the battery down pretty quick! Could also be the ignition switch, contacts could be worn.
