I had an experience where the battery in my Altima failed, and while in
the process of determining whether the battery is just had it, or
whether there is a load on the thing, the mechanic put an ammeter in the
circuit between the battery positive terminal and the clamp.
He measured 0.15 Amps flowing, when the car was shut off, the lights
were off, and there should have been no load except the electronic stuff
you cannot shut off.
He thought that might have been a little high. Does anyone have any
experience with that parameter?
Thanks ever so much,
