Check the lead to the starter it could be shorting or the starter itself is shorted, when you say drain do the headlights dim if on or does every thing just go off?

ZF is good trans- but if you continue
to or have been using it- with problems,
you may as well pull it & rebuild it

I would hope you checked for codes
OBD 1 maybe that won't happen

On the internet is a lot of info
Google the trans
Google questions
Go to You Tube Video-I have watched hours
of trans rebuilds & what your asking there

I once owned a trans shop

I have no info on your car or know what if
any electrical or electronics are involved

But from what your saying & my experience with
lesser quality trans than yours,I think it has to come apart

Could try cleaning the valve body

If it has been in service for 10 years or more
& a 150,000 miles pull it

No fluid changes every 3 years,it's toast

wiki: ,see bold , I added.
The 405 was available as a 4-door only. Four-cylinder petrol engines included 65, 92, 110, 125, and 160 hp (48, 69, 82, 93, and 119 kW) units. A 1.8-litre diesel engine, with or without a turbo (70 and 90 hp (52 and 67 kW)) was added to the range during 1988 as was the 5-door estate.
the 405 ended in USA in 1991.
The 405 range included three petrol engines and two diesel engines, all four-cylinder with no 6-cylinder option, in a variety of states of tune and specification. The range was tailored to suit different export markets. The 1.6-litre saloon featured a low drag co-efficient of Cd=0.29, with other models varying up to Cd=0.33. The 1.4-litre (1,360 cc) engine was fitted with a four-speed manual gearbox. It produced 70 hp (52 kW) at 5600 rpm. The 1.6-litre (1,580 cc) engine was fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox and produced 92 hp (69 kW) at 6000 rpm. The 1.9-litre (1,905 cc) engine was available with a five speed manual gearbox, with an option of an automatic in the lower powered version.
The 8-valve version of the engine was available in two levels of tune; 110 hp (82 kW) or 125 hp (93 kW). A 16-valve version was available with the Mi16 model and this produced 160 hp (120 kW) at 6500 rpm and could reach a top speed of 220 km/h.[4]

Renew the PCV valve first to see if it is OK. if not, check the cam timing to see if the cam belt is fixed properly.
