My brother bought a new 92 Dakota and it went through 4 batteries in 9 years. He went to three different dealerships to find out why the battery would go dead in a month of sitting. They never discovered why. He sold the truck to me in 2003, and I found the cause very quickly - the tachometer drive board *by design* was drawing 100 mA of current with the engine off. I rewired it to run off the ignition only and eliminated the problem.

The "1.55" would be 1.55 amps. But what they probably told you was normal was 0.06 amps, NOT 0.6 amps. 0.6 would definitely indicate a flaw.
