Interesting issue with dome light

25 June 2009

Hi all,

Recently my battery was drained for no reason. I figured the battery is old so I replaced it with a interstate megatron plus battery. A day later it died too.

While searching for answers on the forum I installed battery cut off switch and a schumacher battery charger. Today I finally think I found the issue.

My dome light is on... I think.

I don't use my dome light so it's on the off position - however, both of my reading lamp switches are turned on.

My question is, does it drain the battery if the map lights are turned on but the dome light is at the off position?
