Angry Espace (faulty ecu?) battery drain

My renault espace 2.2dci 2001/2002
frequent injector changes after red light and complete car cuts out in fast lane motorway. Then starting problem. Replaced high pressure fuel pump. After which warning light (battery) came on! Recharged battery several times.electrician claimed ecu draining battery fitted relay to disconnect at night. Car then had warning light on acceleration / motorway cruising (5 times on m25 and 10 times on return journey !) car then cuts out no power no power steering etc. Turn off turn on to go again.
Ecu sent away returned tested ok (cleaned up a bit of acid spray) refitted battery still drains !!!

What ampage is being drawn across the battery whilst parked??
Did the spark remove each fuse in turn and disconnect the alternator to see if there were any changes
