    battery parasitic drain

    My apologies for coming very late on this thread however I just found it over the weekend while searching the web for E30 battery current drain issues.

    I was wondering if digger resolved this issue and what was the root cause as I have a similar issue going on in my car.
    Regards,

      i never found a smoking gun i think the battery had been discharged and not recharged properly while at a shop and just need a proper deep charge, i did have a vaccum pump wired incorrectly which i fixed but it had been that way for years without major issue so wasnt the root cause.
      the last time it got drained was being towed when igntion was left on for a while about a year ago. i havent had any drain issues since it was recharged properly but havent checked the current draw.

        Many thanks,
        I appreciate the follow-up response,
        I clearly have a different issue now as the fully charged battery is Ok but nothing is happening at the ignition key in the start position.
        Looks like another miss spent weekend coming up.
        Cheers.
