    drain on battery

    2005 93 arc, my battery keeps running down like in hours, at first, i thought it was the ign switch, but after searching I'm leaning more toward a diode in the alternator, can anyone tell me if i can pull a fuse or wire to eliminate the alternator? i also noticed sitting in the dark that the panel lights will come on and off very dimly thanks grn

    Unfortunately modern cars have a single cable that connects the alternator to the starter solenoid and the battery so the answer to your question is no.
