Is it been drained Empty
PostSubject: Is it been drained   Is it been drained EmptyFri 23 Aug - 19:35

Thought the battery was goosed so had a ring round for a new one with a bit of discount thorough coldflame. I then decided to check the battery with multi metre. I have found that when its not connected it seams to be charging itself. I now think that something might be draining the battery. I have checked and there seams to be no internal lights on.
Any ideas anyone.
Thanks in advance

Do you only do short runs in the car or do you give it a good run out.

Normally do decent runs and as far as alternator i don't think it is as when i jumped it off it started again after only a few minutes, so think its charging the battery.
Are there any common faults with earths anywhere?

Have you got a tracker fitted on your car Phil?

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the tracker.

The tracker wasn't any good and I found out that to replace it would be the subscription and about £300 - so asked the insurance company and the policy would only go up by £25 so wasn't worth pulling out all of that money.

Finn disconnected the tracker for me (it just unplugs though) and the car has been fine ever since.

Hope that helps.

Thanks mid life, but no traker fitted. I am not so sure about the light in the boot but can't find it. I Will have a better look tomorrow when i check the battery again.
John, if I get to the bottom of it I will let you know.

Do a battery drain test on it / Do you have a multi meter or amp clamp ?

You haven't got a parrot hands free or any other aftermarket electrical extras In the car by chance? Just had summit similar with the missus's mini, that turned out to be the parrot in hers

A common one is the boot light staying on when the boot is shut.

No parrot, but i did fit a boost gauge. It doesn't light up until ignition is turned on but I suppose I could disconnect it and try that.

I can't even find the light in the boot johnny but will double check in the morning. There are some taped up wires km the boot and it does have a tow bar fitted, so it might even be something to do with that.
Thanks everyone and keep the ideas coming and Will discount them tomorrow after i have tried all the suggestions.

I fitted a boost gauge as well John, so just unplugged it and charging battery so hopefully Will sort things out.
Multimetre was reading 7.38 yesterday and today is 9.80 after taking battery leads off. Hopefully with a trickle charge for a few hours i Will be back mobile again and save 57 quid on buying a battery.
