Battery Drain - Alarm Test

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Battery Drain - Alarm Test

Hi all,

Got a bit of a problem with the car battery draining. Its happened twice now, and ive taken it down the garage and we've done the usually bettery drain test etc... and it only show up as 0.02 amps drainage, which is fine.

One thing I dont think has been tested is the actually alarm system. How can I test if the alarm is draining the battery, because once you disconnect the battery the alarm switches off. :confused:

Place the ammeter in series with the pos+ lead of the battery,or use the inductive probe ammeter. DO NOT try to start engine.
