New owner looking for help

Just picked up a 2001 Mustang GT Delux Convertible in a trade today. It has a problem of draining the battery if you donít disconnect it. Previous owner said itís a known problem with this model. I canít find anything on it. Anyone hear of this or know how to fix it?

You might get more help if you post in the forum for modular mustangs, this is for 1965-1973 models.

I have never heard of it being a common problem. My 2000 GT can sit for months without any battery drain.

I came upon this thread by accident. For more responses you need to post it in the 96-04 forum under Modular Mustangs. We have a few years to go before our cars become classics.

My Mach has been sitting since Aug and the battery died the other day. I'd start it up every few weeks and let it run for a bit.

1998 v6 - Sold
2000 GT - Sold
2003 Mach 1 - Current
