Hello all. I'm working on my 2000 sploder.
My Battery will go dead after a month or so sitting, un-driven.
My first guess, of course, is a weak, old battery but..
What is the acceptable draw from the car electrical systems when parked and "Asleep"?
I tested the draw with a multimeter by disconnecting the negative battery cable, attaching a lead to it and touching the other lead to the negative battery terminal.
My reading was .042 amps or 42 milliamps.
Is that normal and acceptable for the clock, stereo (stock) anti-theft, and keyless entry to draw?
Thanks in advance.
