[DML] Re: Dead battery fix was:Lauren's Car

Why not start with the real problem ? current drain !

Reducing standby-current is done very quickly and cheap on
a stock Delorean. I proved that 6-7 years ago, but never got 
rich with that :-(

Remember the door lock module that sucks 13mA just to check
the door switches ? reduce it to 1mA and it will help a lot !
(see the thech section of the DMCNEWS)

Cars with newer radios, amplifiers and alarm-systems of course 
draw more. But a stock Delo should keep the battery much longer
charged if you modify or disconnect the door lock ECU.

Hey Lauren - I can modify that for you if you come to 
Gettysburg :-)

down.  At the end of countdown it cuts power from the battery to the 
rest of the car.
