Well today i went into Watford to get a DVD for my mum for mothers day. Started off by getting there too early and the place was empty (forgot shops don’t open till 11) so had McD’s breakfast. Now I tried Virgin/HMV/WHsmith and they had all sold out. I then popped into Maplins to pick up a new multimeter so I could run some more checks on my battery and for a fiver was a bargain. Then off to look for DVD at Tesco Watford (sold out) Tesco Pinner (sold out) so I thought sod it and came home and ordered it from Amazon.

Done some tests on battery and the new multimeter showed there was a drain and i’ve narrowed it down to the ignition relay. Funny how the other mulitmeter didn’t show it even more so cause it’s a work one ha, but alas a cheapie £5 one did rolls eyes

Also the V measurement between the two varried slightly which was odd

With relay 0.22 A drain

Without relay 0.06 A drain which is about right

Battery V when left

12.48V Fluke

12.58V Maplin
