Re: Battery Discharging

Twenty amps is a helluva parasitic drain - sounds more like a short to earth via some heavy consuming component. Even the 200 milliamp drain is probably too high. Although remember you need to let the car sit fully locked for around 5 minutes or to let all electronics power down.
