Mk6 Golf - Jetta - Scirocco - Beetle / Re: Battery draining

Stereo isn't orginal. I installed an aftermarket one myself done correctly. Also been fine for 2 years. Have pulled the fuse for radio so will see how that goes. Also just installed a bluetooth voltage meter so will show the voltage drop.

Side note.
Only had this problem since getting my abs module replaced any thoughts on that one?

So thought I won this battle by buying a new battwry. But after leaving the car for 5 days battery voltage was 3.5volts.

When doing the parasitic drain test is this correct.
Open hood and doors and locked them with a screw driver.
Arm car with remote. Then disconnect the battery cable (ground)
Or do I disconnect first then arm the car.
Volt meter: black wire to possive lead and red to battery cable ground.
Then with another meter test the fuses without pulling them out.

I'm going to disconnect stereo and see if that's a problem.

Any way to test the alarm itself? I've read online that sometimes the door sensor doesn't work correctly and drain the battery.

Any help would be great.
