Where are all of the grounds located on a 2000 Trans Am? I got an issue with my battery dying if I leave my car sitting longer than 1 day. Battery is only 1 or 2 years old. I cleaned off the terminals not that long ago, but I can always check again.

Well, aside from the fact that a bad ground will never cause a battery drain, there is a thread here that lists them: https://ls1tech.com/forums/pontiac-f...-all-them.html.

The best way to locate a parasitic drain is to put an ammeter between the battery terminal and cable (either positive or negative will work since a complete circuit is necessary for current to flow) and first check if there is more than 80 milliamps of flow then start pulling fuses until you find the one that eliminates the draw.
