    Default Sniper Draining Battery

    I've notice a new pattern. I have a dual set of battery connections. I use one set for normal operation of vehicle with a heavy duty safety switch to cut all ground from battery to frame while car is not in use/storage. The other set is strictly for the ground & positive wires connected directly to battery for the Sniper EFI only and it stays connected 24/7. When I flip the switch to cut ground off and come back a day later, the battery is completely drained. If I don't flip the switch and leave the complete system undisturbed, the car is ready to go at anytime? During the installation of the Sniper setup, I noticed that when I would finish for the day, the handheld unit would "Flash" constantly only when I interrupt this ground to frame switch. I currently have the handheld unplugged and still having the issue. Has anyone came across this problem? BTW, initially during install I was advised by Holley Tech to leave the red & black to battery constantly connected, so unit wouldn't lose memory or I would have to run Wizard every time I decided to take car out for a drive. Kinda makes sense, but what I'm surprised about is that unit doesn't retain memory if it's all powered down from battery. GM large cap HEI only. Thanks in advance!
