About 15 milliamps down once the computers have gone to sleep. Here is a guide to help you test.

The alternator is good had an oil change but the oil light came on and it started to knock and rattle like it had no oil in it and then it shut off could it be a fuse or sensor

If oil pressure is not showing, the engine computer is programmed to turn engine off. You need to be checking the oil level and oil filter etc.

Check and test the computer controlled circuit of the alternator's field generation

When the battery is disconnected or run dead, the Engine Computer loses its memory and has to relearn "minimum throttle" before it will know when it must be in charge of idle speed. To meet the conditions for the relearn to take place, drive at highway speed with the engine warmed up, then coast for at least seven seconds without touching the brake or gas pedals.
