comment How many amps should my car pull while it is turned off?
R..: I disconnected the negative terminal and measured the draw with a meter from the line to the battery. A couple days later, I started pulling fuses and measure the current from the fuse box. I found a line (for the power mirrors/interior lights at my feet) that was pulling about .63 amps. Since I don't need floor lights and my mirrors rarely need to move, I just pulled the fuse until I can take the car into the shop. So far this has helped.

Rory Alsop: I used an Amp/Voltage meter. I work in engineering and I was assisted by an electrical engineer. Or should I really say... I was assisting an electrical engineer who was helping me solve this problem.

No, there is nothing like that. I'm thinking it could be a bad relay that's stuck in an open state. However, before I start pulling fuses and testing the amps I thought I'd verify whether .8 amps was high or not.
