    Vehicle : vauxhall vivaro

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.9

    Year : 2004

    Default

    Put it into amp mode disconnected the neg lead and fit multimeter in series.

    you then need to allow time for things to go to sleep etc

    common faults are boot light/ glove box lights. Or computers that keep "waking up"

    ypu can check for parasitic drain by check mv draw across each fuse but its bit more complicated
