The Best Ways to Perform a Parasitic Draw Test aka Parasitic Drain Test - How To DIY
In this video I speak about a few different ways that can be successfully used to find what item is draining your battery.
I speak about the following :
~Ammeter series connection Test - I show clips of an actual parasitic draw on a Honda that I found and fixed, it turned out to be the Bluetooth HFT Module that was causing the drain over a number of days when the vehicle was left idle
~Battery management systems and using a scan tool
~Voltage drop test - In this clip I show the A/C fuse tested before and after the A/C is turned on. The level of draw is very high and is just for demo purpose, the chart below can help you determine how much of a draw you have.
