I have an 04 plate transit connect with a battery drain

Customer Question

I have an 04 plate transit connect with a battery drain issue. It is drawing 0.385 amps with everything off. I've managed to isolate it by removing fuses one at a time. When I remove the fuse for the instrument cluster the amps drop to 0.015. Is this likely to be solely down to the cluster?

Hello and Welcome..

My name is ***** ***** Sorry to see you have had a wait.

There is every chance its the cluster yes -certainly if you have come down to that as you say. They / the compnents on the dash cluster do go wrong on various ways.... if suspect you will need to have it tested independantly. For this you need to have a specialist who has the proper equipment to test - and repair as found.

The best company I know for this is at If you go to that site you will find their contact number and you can arrange that with them - they do a fast turnaround.. you send the unit to them -and they can usually offer a 24 / 48 hr turnaround for such issues as that ..

Given what you have outlined, I would say yes that is your next step-

Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
