First I guess I should ask how small a current you would be allowing. If it's under 1 mA, then no one should get a shock from it but it may tingle a bit

I would like to be able to lean on the car and check tightness on the battery terminals without needing gloves. Perhaps a momentary test for leakage on startup?
