2007 Kia Spectra - Key Off Battery Drain

What is a typical battery drain with the ignition off?

Sometimes a glove box or trunk light may be stuck on, I had one car the brake light switch was faulty, left the brake lights on and killed the battery. It may just be the end of life for your battery, more info, more better responses.

Typical current drain should be less than 30 milliamps when things are in the sleep mode. It varies between manufacturers.
