Hi,

Just a quick question, how much of a drain is the tv on the battery if engine is switched off?

Anyone know for how long the tv can be viewed with iginiton on but engine off before the battery power goes right down?

Thanks

damn you and the front tv function lol... ive watched a dvd in the back with the engine switched off for about 20 mins no problem. cars with the tv function have a bigger battery that can hold its charge longer when the car is off.

Exactly. The car will warn you when the battery is getting low and will tell you to start up. It's not like you are going to be stranded with a dead battery and no warning.
