Hi, how much current leakage is nornal for a VE current draw? I'm reading about 0.5A with the key out of the ignition (has been out for 30 minutes or so).

Is the interior light on in the boot?

0.5A @ 12V = 6W so sounds like an interior lamp or boot lamp is stuck on as Fu suggested ;)

Only said it because if you are testing the battery, you’ll have the boot lid up and that means the boot light is on.

Yeah it was the boot lamp. Removing the fuse proved that
