    I thought that re air con just what read on line. Garage seem keen to sort so fingers crossed. It's a great car love the auto really moves. Trying to get wife to drive it she's never driven an auto but used to drive my heavily tuned saab so used to power.

    Any other ideas

    Agree with glove box light this was the problem in the Astra i owned, if yours stuffed full?

    Go out in the dark can you see any lights on and put the back seat down is the boot light on?

    You can check for a drain but the canbus needs about 20 mins to shut down then you can see any drains.

    Charged the battery this morning went out after lunch for a run in the car. Just been out to move it battery dead. So the drain must be large. Ring the garage tomorrow see what they can sort.

    It could be draining back through a faulty diode in the alternator.

    Ever since I've had my car, the battery only lasts one day unless taken for a run. I recently had to change my alternator which stopped charging completely and I hoped this would cure the problem, thinking it might have been due to faulty diodes.

    Still got the same problem
