    Hi there, very new to the forum and a e36 newbie too... But after two days of trying to find an answer and searching forums I just wonder if someone could please tell me what the mA reading should be when carrying out a parasitic load test. I am getting a reading of 56mA? Could someone (if they don't mind) let me know if this is normal? I have repaired the boot lid cables as a first port of call on a drained battery but of course did not complete a parasitic load test before this and now am not sure what it should be reading. Sorry sure this is asked a lot, but searching the forum I have been unable to find a decent answer... More than likely my crap searching skills! I would point out that pulling fuses 33 and 35 drop the reading to 19 mA...

    Cheers
    RP

    yes i agree , it should be around the 50 ma , depending on what equipment fitted , a low spec car should be about 30/40 ma .

    Cheers bud, seems to be fine at the moment... Just seemed like a lot when having worked with classics for so long but seems to be about right, and Bentley manual says anywhere between 0-100 so should be all gravy!

    Thanks again fella's
