1988 Dodge Omni. I have no park lights or dash lights. I have replaced the fuse multiple times. I have the Chilton's and have traced the hot wire from the headlight switch to the battery with no errors found. I removed the headlight switch and fuse still blows. The wiring diagram in the manual shows that all electrical draws occur after the switch in the circuit. But with the switch out of the circuit the fuse still blows with no electrical draw...

Hi, my 2002 Dodge Dakota has been going dead lately and needs to be jump started. I have already replaced the battery to no avail. It usually goes dead after sitting for a few days. But the max battery draw is .3 amps, which is acceptable. When the condition happens, after jump starting, i have to keep the accelerator open to keep it running. I have figured out that the IAC valve not opening during a cold start was the cause of that. I cleaned the IAC and re-installed it. It still would not
