    Default battery going flat

    My 02 Vectra keeps making the battery go flat overnight. Removing fuse number 9 for the BCM stops the battery going flat. Car is completely standard and nothing appears to be staying powered up.
    Any idea`s?

    It is just for the body control module. Obivousley there are a lot of systems that run through the bcm, so it isn`t this circuit which the draw is on, but the fact the bcm is staying powered up and keeping something on or is being told to stay on . Been through all the normal stuff, such as boot lights, stereo etc, but nothing seems to be working or powered up. Pulling my hair out with this!
    The draw is enough for the car not to start in the morning, and totally dead after 2 days. Battery is new, alternator is charging fine.

    just been looking through threads for problems on flat batteries. Mine goes flat after around 4 weeks, I recharge and all ok again. Recent service checked alternater and battery - both ok. However did have a problem with the tailgate latch, 'fixed' but maybe the root cause of the problem with the battery. Did you fix your problem with the latch, and if so how?
