I agree! I need to figure out where the draw is if there is one. After fully charging it and leaving it all night with the alarm deactivated, it was at 12v on the cluster this AM. My question for the FSR is will there by the typical symptoms of the fan not working properly? Running after car is off and or asleep? Or can it just cause a parasitic drain without any of these symptoms because I don't have any of these? I will check the battery voltage on the cluster later as I don't have my multimeter with me...

Lots of things can cause a draw/drain without other symptoms which is what can make it hard to track down. You can only measure a draw with an amp/milliamp meter. You need to measure current not voltage.

So far the battery voltage has not dropped from 12v for around 5 hours using TEST9 using the unlocked IKE test...

Are you asking how to unlock the cluster?

After work the battery showed 11.8-11.9v. According to this 11.8-12v is not good?

If you have no amperage draw with the sav sitting, I would say you have a bad battery.
What if you fully charge the battery and disconnect it from the vehicle and let it sit over night and check it in the morning and see what the voltage is at. That would be a tell tale if it's the battery or not. It definitely should stay above 12v easily.

You are not doing that test and you aren't using the listed procedure or equipment to do it so why would you even look at that chart ??

Yeah you are correct! I was just going based off the elapsed time and the voltage I am seeing on the cluster which isn't helping much...

No, what the "TEST9 using the unlocked IKE test"

Is that basically using your display as a DMM or does it actually test something?
