you have a battery drain

do you have a voltmeter ?

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

get a voltmeter and pick the ma ( milli amps ) setting and go across every fuse in the car inside fuse box and outside fuse box and the one that register above 0.30 ma . like 0.8 ma 0.9 ma 2.6 ma , 4.5 amps etc.... anything above 0.3 when you find it pull it out and see to what circuit it goes to and let me know .

please let me know

Thank You
