Hey guys.
I have a 96 Bronco. I've looked through my helm's manual and this forum. The problem is that I am getting a steady slow discharge. I hooked up my ScanGauge to monitor the battery voltage and it was dropping .1v about every 10 minutes. When I wake up in the morning to drive it to work or leaving from work It has a hard time starting. Usually the battery voltage both on my ScanGauge and meter are pretty low. I checked the battery terminals and the connections where pretty tight. It looks like it may of had an Amp previously or somthing because there is a wire coming off the positive lead. Any suggestions on things to check would be awsome, I am going to go to autozone to get the battery / alternator tested.
Sorry about the long post.
Thanks for the Help
Dave

or unhook a cable and use a DVOM to look for parasitic draw.
place one lead to the cable and the other to the battery post(i think) and you should see voltage if there is a draw.
