1992 Bonneville Stalling - Retarting - Battery Dying
I have a 1992 Bonneville SE (200+K miles) that has a strange issue. It has been stalling and restarting after sitting. This began a few weeks ago, I haven't been driving it for a couple of weeks, been too busy working to look at it much. I noticed that it will drain the battery just sitting there for a short time. It will stall while driving and then restart but only after it sits and only if it has not drained the battery. I had Autozone check the battery, they said it was fine. It has 14V coming from the alternator. I am not sure where to begin. I think I may have a short to ground somewhere, especially since it drains the battery sitting there. Sometimes it kills the battery in a matter of a half hour. It is dead now. I can jump it and it starts no problem, and charges the battery. But them it will drain the battery, sometimes rapidly, other times not. I can get behind the wheel and make it to Canada, or 2 miles away, toss of the dice. Any ideas on how/where to even begin? It does have a few weird electrical anomalies, the trunk switch sticks some and I have the electric door lock and windows problem where some work some do not. I did clean the ground busses, visually checked the main battery cables. Thanks for any and all help.
