That's cheating and like lying to your wife unless you tell her you cheated.

That makes 3 of us. If not I'll plug an ammeter probe between the battery and the car and record what's happening during a week of just sitting in the garage, though I even had the alarm on hold both times this has happened. Maybe Terry is sneaking out at night and listening to the stereo system.

I'm guessing you have a cross drain in there someplace, John. It might take years to find it, though.

That's why the current sensor connected to the recording program on the laptop - at least I'll see how much and when it's happening. Short duration with a Big draw would be limited to several things while a low draw over a long period could take a while.

Inquiring minds want to know!

A slow, trickle drain is more damaging and will draw a battery down faster.

Me too... which puts our checking account way more than anyone needs in checking. Time to add it to the savings account.

We had an over abundance of cash last month. Much, much went into savings. As well as paying off the A-hole and buying Junior a car.
