Current drain?

Post by Paul Prescott » Wed May 11, 2016 7:50 pm

Just put a new battery in the Mini. Before I connected the earth lead, I took a current measurement with everything switched off, between the negative post and the earth. I measured 9.6 milliAmps. Anyone know if this is normal? Any particular component that could be allowing a current leak?

Have you got a stereo? it probably has a permanent live to keep the memory.

Whipping out one fuse at a time is the usual seek-and-ye-shall-find method, but surely you know that Paul?
