Couldn’t possibly say how accurate I’m only a diyer. But the new battery seemed to be ok, as start stop is still working nearly a week later. Just have to check the rear demister as twice I’ve noticed the window delisting when I didn’t switch it on and the relay under the bonnet has a burning smell and white powder around it
Will do thanksI assume you mean window is demisting, remove the relay and watch what happens, check the pins on the relay looking for burn marks and also look at base of relay for burn signs, check the female connections for corotion and see if falling back or loose. The relay contacts could be welded together.
Fillco I do not no what to say to your comments, they are true, but not helpful to the average person seeking help on this site.

eg 1% +/- 5 digits Depending on your resolution (the number of digits after the decimal point) of your reading and meter range. If your resolution was 0.1mV that would mean that the real voltage of a dislayed 1mV, could be anywhere between 0.60 and 1.5 mV but your Fluke should be a better resolution than that, more like 0.05% +/- 2 digits.
Fillco is highlighting that you're trying to read a very minuscule level of voltage- starting from 0.1mV on that chart. Your average DIYer's multimeter isn't going to be accurate at those low levels. Possibly not even in the ball park of being close. You also need to consider that those fuses could also vary a lot in their resistance between different manufacturers- that will affect the voltage reading.Fillco I do not no what to say to your comments, they are true, but not helpful to the average person seeking help on this site.

Saw a trick on YouTube about connecting your meter between battery and earth and using amp setting to see what amps are being drawn. Said it should be less than half an amp if it’s higher remove fuses until it drops. Have done this when new battery went on and after waiting for all components to finish cycling down it was below that so must have been a naff battery. Just finding time now to investigate the rear demister issue. I would like to thank everyone for all help received on this forum and will be back to let you all know how I get on with that 👍👍😀
