I was curious what the current drain is with the key off, and the answer is 12.3 ma. ( FYI the immobilizer has been completely removed). Other posts have stated the ECU draws about 7 ma so I'm a bit high but not concerning. Anyone else measured it on their car?

The service manual says the drain should be 15mA without the alarm being set, 20mA with it being set. 12.3mA with the alarm removed (and assuming it still has a radio) seems reasonable to me.

Thanks cyow5 Nice to have the service manual numbers. Yes, I still have the factory radio (never use it) so it appears my draw is certainly in the ball park.
