Another battery drain issue.

My sons 147 2.0 02 plate battery is draining.
Checked for rear lights dimly lit and nothing there.
Removed drivers side window controls am no improvement.
Disconnected aftermarket android unit and no change.

Using a good quality ammeter I have measuresd current drain. It tends to sit at about 0.5A for about a minute maybe two then a click and drop to about 0.3A. Sometimes about 10 seconds later it drops to about 0.02A sometimes it doesn't.

Disconnecting and reconnecting the battery usually means it will drop to 0.02A the first two or three times that the car is switched off. After that it is normally back to only dropping to 0.3A.

I haven't started pulling individual fuses yet but any guidance would be appreciated.
