    Default Battery life

    Does anyone elses battery go flat when the cars not been used for 2/3 days?

    The battery is only about a year old, and will stay fully charged for quite a while if I don't lock it using the fob - and if it's used on a daily basis.

    Have checked the alternator and it's suppyling enough feed to the battery... it's a 2005 1.9 CDTi 150phs

    Any thoughts?

    It sounds like you have a drain on the battery that shouldn't be there.

    The only way for you to find out is to check it out with a multimeter that does amps too.

    Basically open bonnet and hold the bonnet switch down with tape of something.
    lock car with fob
    remove the neg strap from the battery and place meter across battery and earth strap (alarm may go off and need resetting with fob, do it when meter is connected)
    Measure current
    If it is above about 100 milli amps then you need to remove the fuses to see when the current drain drops, that will identify the circuit responsibile for the drain.
    Then you may want to investigate further.

    Excellent thanks - any ideas which fuses control the alarm / immobiliser as I am sure this is the problem.
