SOURCE: Does a 2001 VW Beetle Turbo need to have a charge at 12.6 volts to conduct a parasitic draw test? I am told by a repairman that he cannot find out what is going on until I get a new alternator, batter

this is not true, a parasitic draw can be found with the battery in any state of charge, yhe purpose of this test is to find out out what is drawing current, meaning amperage from the battery and at what rate. take this to a certified mechanic, should be easy to find with the right tools.if you need more help get back to me. please rate my fix as i stive to be the best Thanks Ray

2005 lt got a parasitic draw of 1.02 ma pulled all fuses still shows up. is there anywhere else i could look mebay relay's ?


a 1.02ma draw is nothing, and is the sort of draw your clock and the flashing light would draw.

In that same conversation, it was suggested that a 200-milliamp draw was "acceptable." That is certainly not the case. In fact, we suggest a 25-milliamp draw is normal and anything that exceeds 100-milliamps indicates an electrical issue that needs to be addressed. Although I have checked the parasitic draw on my Excursion in the past, I'd never photographed that test. I did just that today and it indicated a draw of about 60-milliamps. That's not too bad, considering I have some of the newer electrical accessories, like memory seats, mirrors and radio presets.

Sounds like you might have what's called a parasitic draw on your battery. Parasitic draw is an electrical component staying on after you turn the car off (that isn't supposed to be staying on) and draining the battery over night. This can be caused by a multitude of things- the light in the glovebox staying on, an aftermarket accessory incorrectly installed to your vehicle, or malfunctioning, a factory component in the car malfunctioning and staying on, a power seat switch stuck on... the list goes on and on. The easiest things to check would be your dome lights, trunk lights, sun visor lights, glove box lights, and seat switches. Make sure the lights are all off after you take the key out and close the doors. Make sure none of the power seat switches are stuck on. If you can't find anything checking the lights and seats, you're going to need a digital multimeter connected to the battery to measure amps, to measure the actual parasitic draw. Once you establish how much parasitic draw there is (30 MilliAmps or less is acceptable), you're going to need to start pulling fuses one at a time to find out where the parasitic draw is coming from. When you pull a fuse and the parasitic draw on the meter goes away, you've isolated the circuit. Then you'll need to find what on that circuit is using power when it shouldn't be.
Good Luck :)
