Re: Battery Discharging

Unfortunately have not tested for parasitic voltage drain as yet as I need an amp meter. However I have tested the charging of the alternator with a multimeter at idle voltage is 13.2v and at 2,000rpm voltage is 14.3v. This is a new alternator and battery fitted since the problem came to light. I intend to purchase an amp meter from maplin this afternoon as I suspect parasitic voltage drain is the cause, the lack of circuit diagram does not help either in diagnosing the fault.
