Hey all,

I'm just looking for some advice or tips on how to figure out what's causing my 2006 Brute 750 to have some sort of parasitic draw.

I disconnect the positive terminal and test the draw between the wires and the positive terminal and seems to show 0.03 amps drawn.

It stays the same if I unplug all of the fuses.

If I disconnect this black box (actuator?) or this 2 wire connector from negative terminal then it shows no draw. See my picture added where I highlighted the box and wire I'm talking about.

Just wondering if anyone has any advice on what to focus on checking next as I'm a rookie with this stuff.

Thanks in advance!
-Eric

This likely should have been posted in Electrical section my bad.

Also I realize this seems to be a common post but felt like mine was slightly different unless I'm testing completely Wrong.

All machines with computers have some parasitic draw because of memory, clocks, retained setting...ect. Yours, although slightly higher then most, may indicate a a problem with the engine brake actuator as in failed to complete it's "Park" cycle. The motor may be bad, gears jammed, fork locked or a problem with the circuit itself. Just know you will always have some parasitic draw , just a little less would be more normal....as I recall.

I wouldn't expect it to kill the battery in a couple weeks. Will dig a big deeper And see if I can isolate where the draw is coming from in the meantime will just resort to disconnecting the battery. Thanks!
