I loaded the same firmware you did (was just using the f series as it was the only thing working with the ob2 at the time) and have experienced the same thing. It will kill the battery overnight. I doubt we will see a fix anytime soon besides me and you, there a probably two other E70 n63 jb4 users so not alot of incentive for Burger to jump on it right away.

A good work around is to simply unplug the jb4 ob2 connector when you park. Its a bit of a pain but does the trick and won't kill the battery now. I will be wiring up a switch soon to make it easier and recommend you do the same. Will probably combine it with a pass-through ob2 connector so I don't have to fumble around with the jb4 when connecting a scanner or laptop.
