  1. I had a good look in the boot wiring can see nothing obvious. Would an aftermarket stereo be linked into this. The wiring is abit all over behind there but when I pull the fuse on the stereo the drain doesn’t drop. Also. I have noted that the frunk and boot lights to not light at all. Could this be linked??
  2. Yeah I did think it was strange that the spoiler and boot mech did not drop the discharge. Seems with fuse d7 out the boot will not open either. Excuse the the stupid question. When you say trace it back. Do you mean follow the harness from the boot back and make sure nothing is spliced in to it? Cheers
  3. Thank you! @JFP in PA it’s a 2003 plate 2.7. Also a UK car. Cheers
  4. Hi all, first post! I have had a battery drain over a couple of days 300ma when tested with a multimeter. Identified it to be the rear spoiler on my 986, by pulling each fuse and waiting for the reading to drop. Removed the fuse and battery holds charge ok. So stripped the boot out and disconnected the plug on the white boot cable motor (what a mission it was!) no drop in current still 300ma. Pulled the spoiler conections too and the relays in the boot, no change.  With fuse D7 removed the MA drop instantly to 40ma when I lock the doors. With D7 connected Rear spoiler and boot mechanism disconnected. Car stays at 300Ma when locked and when left for 20 mins or so? Maybe need to leave it longer but I just think it is strange that it drops instantly with D7 removed. Anu advice or help would be appreciated thanks.
