    Re: 73 deville drawing 7 amps with key off through the 25A clock fuse....HELP

    The 25 Amp fuse controls:
    -Cigar lighters
    -Clock
    -Courtesy Lights
    -Glove Box Light
    -Map Light
    -Trunk Light

    All of them work with contact off. This is for the '69 model but I donīt think '73 have changed noticeably.

    I would start by checking cigar lighters. Sometimes some dime or metallic debris in the socket could provoke an electric drainage.

    Itīs advisable getting a '73 manual shop manual. Itīs a huge help for fixing or maintaining your caddy. You can find some of them on Ebay.com for little money

    Thanks for the reply
    I had disconnected the lighters at all 3 locatios, the clock, the clock light, the glove box light, all the courtesy door lights operate correctly.....looked for a trunk light....couldn't find one....Thw car is actually a buddy of mine .....Isn't there a stash of wiring diagrams for all models hidden on this site somewhere. It's very weird to have a 7A draw and have it not be a device.....a short would be much more aggressive....ie blown fuse NO? ANy one out there with a diagram would sure be a help

    I could only provide a 1969 model diagram in 4 pieces. Do you think it would help you?
