I would try a parasitic draw test. Here's a video on how to do it...... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KF1gijj03_0

Thank you. I just watched video. VERY informative. I don't have that amp. meter but will find someone who does. For now I think I'll pull radio fuse and have car jumped AGAIN. I'll keep you posted. Thank you. Dianna
