2001 Ford Mustang GT

Have a battery drain problem with a 2001 Ford Mustang GT 4.6L V8, 5- speed. When vehicle is not cranked for 24 hours, it has to be jump-started. Problem has never yielded trouble code. Alternator is functioning properly as required by service manual. Would appreciate all help and advice. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration

The way you find this problem is to unhook a battery cable and put a testlight in series. If it's lit you have a draw. You may have to put a jumper wire across the connection to expire all the timers first. Now, if the light is still on start pulling fuses one at a time untill the light goes out. Then you have found which circuit is doing it and you know which components to look at. Be sure your not triggering a dome or hood light while checking the fuses. Common culprits are modules like the door chimes of alarms.
