Well, I just went out to check the car this morning and the battery is completely dead. Looks like I have a low amperage current drain somewhere. The clock stopped at about 5 am. I put the new battery in yesterday at about 3 in the afternoon.

Could shorted windings in the alt. do this, or a bad component in the voltge regulator, when the ignition is off? Can anyone provide me with the ohm meter values for the various parts of the alt/reg/rectifier and which connections to test at?

Thanks for any help,
