I have a problem with a car battery that was replaced in May 2014. The car won't start if it sits idle for more then 24hrs. I hooked it to a meter and I see a drain of 323mA on the battery. On some car siites they indicate that a parastitic drain shouldn't exceed 25-70mA. Although 323MA is significantly higher, it doesn't seem like its high enough to results in the car not starting after one day (thats after I fully charge the battery). As for the alternator, it reads 13.83v. If I turn on the lights, fan, radio, and rev the enging - its stays above 13.75-13.8v.
Any thoughts on whether this I sounds more like a battery issue or not?
Battery: AAA 24F-C
ECU-B no.1 180 mA
DOME 107 mA
MPX-B 25 mA
EFI NO.1 15 mA
have the same problem?
