Having replaced my battery once I decided to investigate what was draining it. I found that with fuse 30 in the draw was 2.45 A, with it removed the draw is 0.08A. Can anyone tell me what the DAS Transponder its and how do I fit it.
I've got a similar problem although my drain is only 200ma. Are you sure it is the DAS transponder. I've traced mine to the instrument cluster itself using a clip on ma meter. I picked up the 200ma entering the instrument cluster and leaving on the two earth wires. This was on the left hand multi pin plug (when looking at the front of the cluster).
You may have a similar issue although 2.4a is extremely high, I take it your battery doesn't last long at all.
