After disconnecting the module near ignition key, I believe remote sentry module/immo, the battery usage drops slowly down to 0,04A.
I did read fault memory with a bosch KTS, read intruments, motor ecu, central convenience and other,
No faults are stored. Maybe I can also read can-bus faults, will check tomorrow.
At start, I pulled out fuse 14, what resulted in the car going to rest, usage down to 0,04A
Put 14 back, disconnected radio, amplifier, instrument cluster and airco panel. All sources used some power, but still about 1A usage left.
Connected everything again and disconnected the sentry module, usage was gone.
Used a scope on the 2 canbus wires, no signal, so it was in sleep.
But when I reconnected the sentry module, canbus keeps alive. Waited half an hour and still the same drain of 2,5A. Also on the canbus signal keeps coming, I believe out of that module.
I only have 1 key, and also removed the battery out of that key and put it away from the car, because I don't know of the module keeps searching for the key? Car was locked at that time also for 30 minutes.
I will post a picture of the module.
