I've got a 90 sse and had a problem with the battery draining, turned out it was a problem with the wiring harness where it comes out from the back seat and bends around the trunk hinge and goes into the trunk lid. The wires were rubbing and it wore through the insulation and would ground out, Its and easy check just look on the passenger side of the trunk up by the hinge.
