How do you know if there are any other trackers on the car...?

I moved my wott box to a different location and now my car is not killing the battery. Could it be that the wott box wire if damaged and was touching the body can cause the battery to die?

Glad you got sorted bud... Still want to know how I can check if there is another tracker on my car draining the battery... I have a brand new battery and it's running down if the cab stands for two weeks... It's like dead dead...!

I'v read that if you walk around the car with an old nokia cellphone like a 5110 the phone will lose signal near the tracker. I dont know if its true though as i havent tried it. Goodluck finding the phone...

you need to check the current draw on the battery when the car is locked and everything switched off in the car. wait about 15mins for the car to go into sleep mode, then monitor it. its been a while now since i had this problem but if i remember correctly it should be below 0.100mA.
