focus-electrical problem

i just replaced the battery on my focus 2005, the original one was exhausted, and now when i measure the power without the battery connected it shows that i have a permanent consumer. It indicates 1.33 instead of a maximum 0.07 that i understand it should indicate, even though all the lights and electricals are off (the only things that remain on are the cd-player watch and the computer board). I encountered this problem when i went to the local dealership in order to get my warranty for the battery, and the electrical engineer sucks, as he said he has no ideea on what the consumer might be. So i ask if anyone has any ideea, any advice is appreciate. 10x

Re: focus-electrical problem

Various items are powered up for a short time. Leave the amp meter connected for 45 min. and see if the draw cuts back.
