    How long can you use dash cam while parked in winter?

    Battery drain problem

    I recently saved a 2004 A3 2.0TDi sport from being scrapped by my non mechanically minded brother to hopefully fix up and the first problem I want to address is a constant battery drain of around 1.7 amps when everything is off. My meter covers DC amps. I took out each fuse one at a time to try...
