Then I propped it up so I could read it with the trunk lid closed and closed and locked the car. Hack your watch and wait. It goes down in a couple small increments, as I assume boxes go to sleep, but at right about 16 min the current dropped significantly to between 40 and 50 milliamps.

If it doesn’t go to sleep fully, then pull a fuse to a likely suspect and repeat the above process. I read that the phone and nav tend to cause these problems.
Thanks, this is exactly what I did too (though I removed the air compressor anyway but then realised I didn’t need to).

I did pull several fuses, BUT, I didn’t wait the 16mins, so it could be that something on those fuses was sending iBus messages and keeping something awake… so I guess I need to go back and do this again and wait 16mins after pulling each fuse too.
