a cheap volt/amp meter will do the same, and be usefull elsewhere for other jobs..
connect amp meter up, close all doors, turn off all electrics...give it a minute to allow anything like interior light delays to switch off...then take the reading, if high [ideally looking for around 0.05 or lower, so 0.3- 1.1 is way too high] then pull the fuses till it drops..[for interior fuses then either run amp meter through open window or pull the bulb from interior lights once you know its not the lights causing the problem]
most common causes are things like glove box/boot lights staying on, cig lighters shorting out, alarms shorting.
