    Default battery keeps going flat.

    hi everyone, i have a 2006 1.8 vvti sri vectra which has a problem,
    some mornings when i go to start it, it wont start as the battery is low so have to get the a jump start,
    i went to Quickfit who do a free battery check and the guy said that the battery is fine and the altenator is ok too but when we turned the car off and tested the battery again, he said that the battery is "busy" in other words, something is drawing power from it.?????
    i know that the alarm will draw some power but surely not that much to drain the battery over a 18 hour period?????????
    i have not done any electrical work to the car at all and i have it over 3 years and this problem has only been happening a few weeks,
    im wondering has anyone had the same prob and can offer a sollution to the problem????????????

    cheers

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Keep an eye on the display when car is locked can be a problem where stereo doesn't turn off an that be enough to drain battery

    That or you have a short circuit some where in your wiring , not an easy thing to tie down to one item and can only be found by a process of elimination , some of the favourite,s for things going short circuit on veccy,s are
    stereo system
    heated rear windows
    rear lights
    and anywhere that wiring looms come close to moving parts
    Driving vauxhall,s for 30 + years
    and still loving it

    as your car is a vvt it could be the dephaser solenoid thats sticking on its a common problem so at night disconnect the wiring plug that goes to it other than that it could be an interior boot light
