    I have a 93 LX with a battery drain, and I can't figure out where it is coming from. The drain happens overnight. I've put in a new alternator, battery, and fixed a wire leading to my starter. When I turn the lights on or the heater the battery gauge drops. I know very little about wiring, and I need some help from you all. All suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks

    You need a test light. Check this out...

    After your test light is hooked up, you start pulling fuses one at a time. This helps you isolate the system where the drain is coming from. If, for example, you pulled the fuse that controls the radio caused the test light to go out (or dim to normal) then you know that you have an issue in the radio, related components, or wiring to the radio.
