Hi, I just bought a 2007 95 TiD Vector Sport estate that appears to have an electrical problem.
I noticed the car was sluggish starting after a day of not being used, I ran some tests on the battery and
discovered that the radio and amplifier are pulling 1.6 amps constantly from the battery. This is after I
have left the car for 30 minutes after the ignition is switched off to allow all the systems to shut down.
I located the amp and when I disconnect it the draw falls to 0.8 amps, which means the radio is pulling
nearly an amp by itself. If I remove the key while the radio is on the radio switches off as I would expect,
the ignition barrel pops up like it should but it would appear the radio and the amp don't fully shutdown.
Not sure what the next step is.
