    Default Standby current Renault 25

    Have checked the standby current on my v6 25. It's measuring approx 340 mA. My brother a mechanic said this is reasonably high. They get concerned if over 150. 25 has old tech electrics, maybe 340 is correct for this car. Can anyone let me know if this is correct or if I have a problem.

    Same with our Citroen BX. Mechanic said he'd expect around 100-120 mA and car has 250 mA (which is 6 amp hours per day). Bit of leakage somewhere and of course the battery goes flat when the car is left for a week or two.

    You could pull fuses one at a time and see which circuit is the one. Oh, I haven't bothered either....

    A V6 R25 I hear you say?
    Is that the Silver one with Blue Cloth interior that was from Melbourne?
    I only know of two others and one of them is in Adelaide and the other in Victoria.
