Would a broken door lock on a 97 Saturn SC2 cause a slow drain on the battery?

Iam having the same problem with a 92 SL-1, the door locks dont drain battery's but the relay does because it is basically an electromagnet and they need juice to operate, where as a switch is just on or off. The problem I am having though is where in the world is the relay for the door locks. I paid $26.00 for it, but cant find where the bad one is to replace it. If you have this problem and you unhook the door locks, the battery will still drain. If you unplug the fuse to the door locks, your car wont start because with Saturns dumb stretegic marketing ideas, the fuse is also tied in with the fuel pump. I hope this helps both of us so we may both possibly find out where the door lock relay is.

The most common cause is a loose or broken alternator belt.

There is no oxygen on the planet of Saturn. IF and WHEN you ever actually got to Saturn, not only would you freeze from the ice cold temperatures, but the gases (hydrogen and helium) would choke you to death. :(

A timing chain, that needs to be replaced, can cause your engine to run rough and lose power. A broken timing chain can cause significant engine damage.
