My Battery keeps dying. Something is draining the power. I have replaced the ignition switch and the problem persists.
I have also tried to trouble shoot the problem by removing the Fuse to select components. Still I have a dead battery. I have replaced the battery several times, I must disconnect the battery when I am not driving the van. I get use my Van on rare occasion.
