    Default Buzzing noise when off = dead battery

    Now, i got the car at the end of last week so i havent driven it that much. to get it home was about 30 mins then i drove it around for a little bit today after i got it registered. i went to my buddys house tonight and after i got shut the car off there was a buzzing noise coming from the drivers side between the firewall and the intake manifold. i havent been able to narrow it down cause it was dark but thats where its coming from. so i didnt think anything of it when i got out of the car but 3-4 hours later the car was dead. got it to start by jumping it with my buddys jeep

    now what is this buzzing noise ( i know its hard w/o hearing or seeing it) its on when the car is on and stays on when the car is off. i dont know what it is? the car runs fine. i might just have to go and start unpluggin ish tomorrow. but if anyone has had this happen please let me know

    get a piece of waterhose and use it as a stethoscope to narrow down the sound.

    You dont need the whole assembly, just a relay I think.... dont spend your money on all that stuff heh, because it wouldnt fix a THING if its the relay.

    Not trying to gyp you Mr Mason but I hate when I spend a bunch of money on something and it doesnt fix anything.
