: 1986 5000 - Battery discharge

03-28-2007, 04:45 PM
I have a 1986 5000 in very nice condition, but suddenly the fan and climate controls run by themselves after I turn off the ignition and remove the key. So of course the battery discharges in a couple of hours.

Now I drive the car, but have to disengage the electrical wire from the battery post every time I park. Is the electrical system truly screwed up, or is this a simple problem requiring the replacement of only a relay or a fuse?
