Ford Mustang Battery Drain

Q. Hi, My name is Joe and I own a 1995 Ford Mustang Cobra with a 302. My battery's power is drained very quickly. My alternator, battery and connections are good. All the fuses are good too. I have three relays 14B192-AA. They are located in the power distribution box. Ford said they go to the fog lamps, starter and horn. Could these drain my battery within two minutes after having a full charge.

The car runs great with jumper cables but as soon as they are removed the power drops fast. Can you help me?


A. This is typical of a bad alternator or battery with an internal short. I would try swapping your battery with a known good battery and see if that solves the problem. If not, then it's probably a bad alternator.
