Granted it will draw more with and alarm but I don't think
it will be .5 amps . The only way to know it to measure it.
They probably depleted Teri's battery by working on the car but if her driving profile hasn't changed
you are going to have to replace the battery every two years.
To disagree is Ok to measure it the only truth.
Hello Ctuna! During the past 2 years, my driving pattern has changed a little but I never have this battery problem ever since and even when I brought my car for service a few times. My first battery lasted me 9 months when it started giving me problem. Just hope it was something with them not locking my door (cos I have to teach my new service advisor how to lock the door) or something to do with the repairing of the battery cable (recall).
