Clamp-on ammeter is not going to be much use at the milliamp range you're checking. Most are very inaccurate at those levels. Rather go inline with a meter selected to a low range. It'll require some fiddling but it'll be accurate.
I appreciate what you are saying but the amp clamp connected to our snap on verus will measure milliamps .I am off on holiday now but will measure everything when back in work, if all else fails I will use my ammeter ( back to the old days)thanks for your input much appreciated :062:

If any use, i found my horn connector was bad, a bit corroded and was draining .02amps.
Some wd40 on the connection eliminated the battery drain.
