hi all, i have a 1996 fiesta 1.4 si and have a really annoying problem, if i leave my battery connected overnight, by the mornin my battery is dead, ive changed the alternator,removed the stereo overnight and various fuses even the factory fitted alarm still to no avail, has anybody got any other ideas? im not exactly a mechanic and defo not an electrician, can faulty relays cause this??? any help would be grately appreiciated
there are several different earth straps around the engine bay and rest of the vehicle although i cannot exactly advise where, have you got a haynes or maybe someone one the forum may be able to help out. i would remove all these in turn, thoroughly clean contacts with wire brush and refit ensuring a good tight connection.
