I found the remaining problem also- The security module wasn't going into sleep mode because someone had disconnected the trunk lights and it monitors those for current drain in case someone pries the trunk open.  So now I don't have to disconnect the battery every night anymore.
Now I just need to put a new stereo system in this thing. Both the front tweeters and midranges are blown and now the power amp is disconnected until I decide what to do with. It still has the original head unit that plays cassettes and had a multi CD player. I will never use either CD's or cassettes so I am going to install something that uses flash drives and has AM/FM for emergencies.

So in the meantime I figured I'd diagnose the one remaining pain in the ass problem this thing has. There was a 2 amp draw on the battery when the car was off and that killed the battery in 2 days or less. Turns out someone replaced the factory power amp with something else and they wired the damn thing unfused to the fuse box input cable and didn't run a sense wire to the head unit so its on all the time. Real fart smella's there. But now there is always a 280ma draw. Now thats a lot better than 2 amps but will still drain the battery, will just take it longer. So now I am taking a break before I go back out and see what other nuggets these rocket scientists left for me.

Headed down to the hospital and find the person responsible for "denying" a new back brace for P.  She is walking and progressing nicely !

A call to our insurance company said that there has not even been a request for one and the system at the ins co works in real time on stuff like this.  Supposedly this is the staff Medicare concierge on the floor who just made up their own mind without actually trying.

Sigh, I just hate when someone tries to bs the bser.  I'll give whoever it is one chance to be nice about this "oversight".

Taking a lunch break from troubleshooting a problem with the new to me Jag, The battery goes dead after 3 days of not driving it (as I cant legally yet). This is a very common problem with the model its turns out and usually ends up being a $1200 SLCM (Security and Locking Control Module) made by FORD. You can find them used for under $200 but the replacement you get must have the same exact programming code number as yours. So I am first checking current draw to make sure it not something more mundane like a bulb staying on somewhere. So now that I have the battery charged up I have my meter in series with it and monitoring the draw. You are supposed to wait 30 minutes for all the modules to go into "sleep" mode and then if the parasitic draw is more than the "normal" 35-50ma (from things that always stay on and kill the battery over a longer period of time) then start pulling fuses one at a time and see what circuit is causing. I just went through this same exercise on my Alfa about a year ago and found a short in a wiring harness. Loads of fun ahead!

Watching them rip out the landscaping outside my office.  I think it's because of the extremely venomous brown snakes that have been seen there.  Probably means the rodent problems will get worse.

Not if you're an administrator. Instead, I'm checking to make sure you've done your TPS report.

Got up from the serious (three hour) nap.  My cat is hungry so he sat on me.  17 lbs of hungry cat will wake a person, as I can attest from many such experiences. I hope I have some cat food....or I'll have to hide my shoes.
