So I disconnected the battery and reconnected it.
Battery voltage 10.2V - very low!
Battery current 20mA
Unlocked the doors and the current shot up to 3A and then settled at 1.7A!!!
Locked the doors again with the blipper. Current goes down to 150mA. It will only go back down to 20mA if I disconnect the battery and reconnect again.
Unlock the doors again with the blipper and current settles to 1.7A again. Lock the doors from the inside using button by gear stick, and current remains at 1.7A.
Suspect the immobiliser then? Any thoughts?
Battery is now disconnected and on charge overnight. Checked bootlight too (thanks for the tip off) but it was fine.
