[DML] Re: battery voltage loss

Climb into your car with flashlight and a multimeter.

With everything off and the doors shut pull one fuse at a time and put your 
meter across the fuse terminals with the meter set to measure amps.  Then 
adjust the meter to measure milliamps.  In this way you will be able to find out 
what circuit is drawing power when the key is off.

Yes the door lock module does have a standby current draw of about 12 
milliamps if I remember correctly.  There is a modification that can reduce this to 
about 1 mA but I think your battery would have to be pretty bad for that amount 
of current to matter over a weeks time.

If you need more help contact me.
