Re: [DML] Re: lock modules



Hank,
It could be a bad resistor or darlington transistor in the LockZilla that's 
causing the excessive drain. Since it uses the same design as the stock 
module, you can perform Elvis' great upgrade if you can solder:

Sadly, this is one of the few "design flaws" of the car. A properly working 
stock module will drain a battery faster then a more modern system, but 
still not as quick as a week (assuming the battery and charging system are 
fine). Hopefully Toby's new lock module will be able to prove itself as it 
sounds like a great alternative when it's released!
