Hello Experts,

I have a VW Westfalia. That's the first problem. It has a battery drain.
I have isolated all the wires to the battery's positive by installing a switch in line. Except for the Wire to the starter. A couple of days later without starting the van. The battery is dead. So my drain must be starter related. How can I test this with a simple multi-meter?

Thanks.

The way to properly test a drain on the battery is removed + cable test light in line with a light will come on if there is a drain, remove the fuses one by one if the light goes out the short is in the circuit
