- check that the alternator and battery is good? free test at autozone. - make sure that all lights (trunk, glove box) are off when the car is off. - to find a leak, measure the amps that are drawn when the car is switched off. Use an ammeter between the negative post of the battery and the disconnected negative cable of the car. Pull/replace fuses till you see a significant drop in amps drawn. Then you know which circuit it is on. If you can get away without that circuit (mine was the cigarette ligther and the clock, on a camry) then do it. my 2 cents i would also recommend that you check your battery cables. mine were bad. changed them and problem solved. make sure that your negative is grounding to a nice clean surface.

Why do brake lights stay on 1986 300zx when car is on or off?

Brake Bumper button is broke , or stuck ... it's the little button under the pedal to the connector to the electrical system ; it's needs to be replaced or it will drain your battery. What I did until I got it fixed was either 1)pull the fuse to the brakes , or 2) just disconnect the battery. I just did 2 in the past week ! I own a 1982 Datsun 280 zx , and a 1987 Nissan 300zx. .
