Customer Question

2006 Acura TL w/Navigation: Something is drawing 3.5 Amps from the battery with the car turned off. I had a similar issue two years ago and identified that the Handsfree Link/Bluetooth module was the issue. I disconnected it and never had another issue.

Hi,My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. I want to make sure you are checking the parasitic draw properly. To accurately measure draw the key should be out of the ignition switch, doors closed, and 10 minutes should elapse between the time you remove the negative battery cable and when you check the amount of draw present. Have you made sure that criteria has been met?
