[20v] So tell me this...

... if I disconnect the positive battery connection AFTER the car is
running, should it continue to run?
I have an electrical issue on my 10v turbo CQ that's causing the
battery to die overnight, and will permanently kill a battery if I
leave it connected. I haven't had the time to properly diagnose the
problem, so I've just been disconnecting it when I park it, and
reconnect and use a booster pack to start it. The battery has been
relocated to the back when the PO did the engine swap, so it's not too
big a deal, but I'm getting tired of the routine...
Anyways, I disconnected the positive battery cable while it was
running last night and it still ran. I thought this wasn't supposed
to happen... The next warm day (yeah right!) I'll put an ammeter in
series to the battery and see if I can figure out which circuit is
causing the drain. It might also be the main wires going to the
battery in the back (arc'ing out somewhere).
