Message I'm checking for parasitic battery drain. Testing was done by placing Ammeter across a break in the cable at negative terminal, then removing all the fusible links in the fusebox in front of the battery

24.500 mA - Condition One: All links in; everything switched off, incl. Alarm.

Next, I pulled all the links and draw was minuscule. Only the links for the LIGHTS (#5 Green) and the BAT (#1 Blue) added any current draw:

00.161 mA - Condition Two: All fusible links pulled

21.500 mA - Condition Three: Only green link #5 LTG

03.620 mA - Condition Four: Only large blue wire Link #1 BAT
