Parasitic Battery Drain e53

What did the battery drop to while trying?

A couple people on XO have recently come across a loose connection at the B+ under the hood. The schematic is wrong where it shows the cable is continuous and has a tap to the alternator: it actually is discontinuous and is connected on both sides of the firewall and can get loose. It will give the symptom of a dead battery or starter but with the odd exception of normal resting voltage of 12.4 or so.
