    Going to depend upon how many lights come on when you open the door. Other things "wake up" as well.
    One 10 watt lamp at battery voltage is going to draw 0.8 amps.

    Pull the fuse for the interior lights and see if there is still a draw when the door is opened.

    your .5 AMP draw is too high. should be below .25AMP or lower after about 15min.

    with a 12volt system each light bulb will draw a good amount of amps. a 12 WATT bulb will draw 1 AMP. when you open the door the interior lamps will draw a few amps.

    the gauge cluster has an electronic module on it. the dealership would change the dash cluster. now there is no diagrams available with this . GM top secret !
