In this month’s spotlight, James from Florida provides a tip related to determining the root cause of parasitic drains resulting from modules awakening while vehicle is off (KOEO). As he points out, if you come back to the vehicle to find multiple modules awake, the trick is to figure out which one activated first.
Parasitic draws are a hot topic in our articles and on iATN. As electrical systems continue to grow in complexity, tricks like the one James has outlined become critical in the quest for quick, efficient diagnostic routines that effectively solve these types of issues. Great tip James!
