Asked by Nov 02, 2014 at 09:18 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

found a power drain doing removed negative terminal powered off test. 1.458amps or 0.145 Ma. Removing cluster fuse stops drain. Removed dash and cluster connection appears ok power drain still present with it unhooked. I can hear a relay click near bcm but not the one in interior fuse box. Btw During test the relay began clicking fast as if I were tapping the terminal and and out of nowhere the trunk popped open. (Push button trunk popper equiped vehicle)

14.5 mA* is this a normal drain level?
