I will try to help you out with parasitic draw. Your battery has 500 CCA(Cold Cranking Amps) That has nothing to do with your problem. The parasitic draw with the car at rest (all computers off no key in the ignition should be less than .5A (amps) The best way to read this is to connect your DVOM (Multimeter) IN SERIES with your neg. battery terminal while the car is at rest. Positive lead to the neg. cable. Neg. lead to the bat terminal. You will generally get a reading of about .5 to 1A or so. Make sure the hood light is disconnected or you will never get a good reading. Give the computers time to go to sleep as they will power up when you complete the connection with your DVOM. Watch the meter it should drop to below .5A as the computers drop offline and go to sleep. I would give it 30 to 45 mins to make sure that all your computers are asleep. If you still have a reading above .5A then you have a problem and I personally would start with the trunk light. They tend to be the most common culprit of parasitic drain. I hope this helps man.lemon said:still confused ...
the battery case itself reads:
part number: 58-VL
cranking amps @ 32* F: 625
cold cranking amps: 500
and it ( the battery ) doesnt say mAmps ... says amps ... thats where my confusion is ... :dunno
