Best Answer

This can absolutely cause the drain. If the solenoid happens to be stuck in an energized position the battery will slowly drain.

A Good Way To Test++++Get A Light 12 Volt, Or A Voltage Tester From Parts House==Looks Like A Screwdriver, With A Wire Running Out Thr Top & Sharp Pointed On The Other End. Remove Your Ground Cable Connect Tester To Ground Cable, Then Connect Other End To Neg. Terminal ( This Will Be Between Ground Cable And Battery, Leave Hot Cable Connected. DO NOT TEST THROUGH IT. THE POSITIVE CABLE IS NOT REQUIRED FOR THIS TEST. IF YOU HAVE A VOLTAGE LEAK THE LIGHT WILL COME ON !!! IF IT DOES CHECK DIFFERENT ITEMS< WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT> YOU GOT IT.
