Damned old cars anyway. All it takes is a poor connection, be it ground or power feed or a "slight" short to cause extreme voltage drops and electrical gremlins. Almost impossible to find. I still stand that there's nothing wrong with the various components involved.

I will say this: Jwakil has already proven to be one hell of a diagnostician. We all might could learn something from his findings eventually.

Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.

I've been driving the car and everything seems to function fine. Let it sit overnight, no battery drain. Measured the current draw from the battery with everything shut off and read virtually zero, as it should. However, I still get lower voltage on that suspect wire I unplugged! Totally bizarre. I guess the laws of physics don't apply to my car. Anyway, I'm not going to worry about it. Thanks for all the help.
