Hi all
I’m need some help please

2011 i30 1.6 crd automatic U.K. model


I’ve got a Parasitic draw.

When I pulled out the room light and radio fuse yellow one.

The drop will go away.

So far I’ve removed all the room lights and rear boot/trunk lock.
Made no difference.


Has anyone found a fix for this one please.

Hi.

If you've found what stops the drain, focus on that circuit path. You may have a radio that's gone bad or damaged insulation in some cabling. Since the radio and cabin light are in the problem circuit, try separating for more clarity. Does removing the cabin light only stop the drain?

Fist six middle row inside.

It’s a yellow double room and radio


I’ve removed it and used separate 15Amp
Fuse’s for test purposes.

Definitely not the radio.

Remove room lights fuse and the pull disappears.

However it is multifunction fuse

Central locking clocks boot open switch and possibly more on this Circuit.


I be good to know what is a acceptable
Draw from the manufacturers. To know what you are working with if any.

I’ve seen posts about this but can’t find a fix for this.
Thanks

How much draw are you getting?
Is it affecting your crank power?
After how many days?

It’s 0.13
After two weeks the battery is dead.

I’ve got the same problem with my Hyundai santafe.
But I got the Central locking working when
Fuse is out.

It’s not right like this.
