RE: [DML] power drains....

Andy, Unless your going to store the car for indefinite periods of time I
wouldn't worry about 0.04 current drains. If your battery is fully charged
Clean the grounds for the sake of it and for better performance of the
electrical system. Batteries stored for periods of time ( 30+ days )with out
being charged will begin a sulfation process internally and start reducing
the capacity of the battery.

Thank David,

I took the battery in after trickle charging it all night.? They said it
wasn't charged all the way but still passed the tests.? After some friendly
arguing, they agreed to replace it for free.? Now it starts a lot easier.

I found two power drains now - the fuse 6 which runs the horn, flasher, and
seatbelt, which is drawing about 0.04 amps when the car is shut off, and my
amplifier for the stereo which is drawing about 0.04 amps as well.? I guess
the first thing I will do is clean all my grounds with a dremel and see if
that helps.? 

Any other tips?
