Battery Drain

0 votes
Hi, My car is "eating" batteries since about 3 years. it's been 3 batteries on it. The dealer tested the car, alternator, ground, parasite and they haven't found anything relevant. I wanted to make a test with the remote starter. Is there any way I can remove a fuse or anything to disable the started during a few days without loosing all config on it ? Could the starter be related ?
I'm getting out of luck on this issue until now. Please advice! Thank you

Just unplug power and ground from the unit. It won't loose any programming if it's a Fortin module.

 

Although doing this won't answer any questions as to why its eating batteries.

 

You should perform a parasitic draw test and disconnect modules/fuses too see where the drain is comming from.
