Battery drain on 125
« on: August 01, 2017, 11:04:10 AM »
I've been having battery problems so after fitting a new battery I used a graduated voltage tester between the disconnected negative lead and the negative post on the battery.
It showed 5v with the ignition off.
After some investigation I found the only thing that would turn off the drain was to pull the fuse E which is the "clock" fuse.
With the ignition off if I refit the fuse the instruments come alive and then switch off again.
What function does this fuse perform as it doesn't seem to matter whether it's fitted or not? The instruments still light up with the engine running.
I have disconnected EVERY connector on the loom to try and find the source but the 5v drain was still there until I pulled the fuse.
The battery will sit at 13v for days with the fuse removed.
Do I have a fault and what is it?
