Hi guys,

How do I check at the battery for fault current draw? I have a problem with the car flattening the battery when turned off and locked and want to check for current draw.

Multimeter: how do I check for the problem, positive to earth or what?

The thread is here: ... 66941.html

Thanks, Mike

You can use a tong meter, leave the bonnet open and then fit the tong meter and see if you get a reading, you can measure either the + or the ground cable, it makes no difference...
