    Battery Drain with odd symptoms SLK 200 1.8 2006

    ML270 W163 Battery Drain

    My 2002 ML270's battery drains within a day. The battery has been tested to be good and is also reasonably new. I think I have isolated it to the culprit. When I switch of the car I can still hear a motor running inside the cabin in the dash. I then did the battery draw test which was running...
