comment Car keys off but fuse still lights up the tester when set to ground
When checking the draw, you need to let it sit for 5-45 minutes depending on the car to allow certain modules to power down. After that time, you should expect less 50 mA (.05A). .8A when first connecting the meter after having removed the terminal is typical - but must let it sit and then check to be sure. Things powering on when reconnecting is fairly normal as well. What brought you to checking all this?

comment Corsa Sport (2007) low compression cylinders 2 & 4
There's also the possibility of blown rings, scored cylinders, or fuel washing out the cylinders. Often, pushing a small amount of compressed air using a compression testing adapter (running full 90psi shop air is too much) into the cylinder can give you a good indication by listening (exhaust/intake for valves, oil fill tube for rings/cylinder, bubbling in radiator for head gasket).

comment Cleaning fuel injectors?
Although in many modern cars, there is no serviceable fuel filter; it is built into the fuel pump.

comment Is that easy to start a car like in the movie Parker?
In many cars, the engine computer and immobilizer/anti-theft computer have to be programmed to each other - so they would have to be replaced in pairs and most likely both would require custom firmware.

comment 2009 Toyota Camry 2AZFE idle vibration remains after new motor mounts
You can usually see one that's torn. Sometimes, it can help to have some one power brake the motor (with the drive wheels of the ground!) back and forth from drive to reverse to see it.

comment Brake lights, but no tail lights
I would check it first. If they are burned out, check for voltage where they are installed as in rarer cases a whole lens is needed
