    This van that I don't drive much has broken down again (1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager, 3.3L, VIN R). I parked it, and four hours later, when I turned the ignition key, just a click. It had not been stalling out or misbehaving in a similar way. The battery (two years old) was dead, even though...

    So, i have replaced my battery, alternator, and starter. Still we will go to start the van and the battery will be dead. There is nothing left on in the van.

    I am measuring still have about .1 amp draw with everything off after several hours of shutting the ignition off. Tried pulling fuses and find the only one that reduces the draw is the EATX fuse.
