Haha! No, I actually found it. I was doing something wrong and that was be patient. Turns out that when I was testing for the drain, I had to wait about 30 seconds for it to appear on the meter. I've ripped out all the wiring associated with anything that wasn't factory and I'm starting again. But yeah, glad it's solved, was doing my head in 😃

G'day mate,

Sure can.. there were two wires, both earth, from the stereo, previously installed before me, and the air con. I've installed a new 7" Pioneer DVD/ CD player moving the heater/ aircon down to where the storage tray was along with some new pioneer speakers and had the opportunity to clean up all the wiring and it was a mess to say the least! Then, realised the aircon fuse, was continually blowing so I checked that out and broken earth wire as well.
Anyway, all sorted now, aircon compressor replaced along with belts, gassed up with updated wiring and no more drain.
