Parasitic draw test is the only way to find out how many milliamps are being used like jetrinka said. i think the acceptable amount of draw is 50-ish milliamps. if a relay is active you'll see a serious increase in milliamps. in the hundreds which is highly unacceptable. if you see that it is reading high after letting the car sit for 10 minutes to let the computers rest, then my suggestion is to start pulling relays to fine point the area. youll need an ETM to trace it back.
