    fusion & connect
  1. Hi all, Im a newbie to this forum. Right ok, ive got a 03 plate fusion 1.4 tdci (higher spec model). The problem is the car wont hold its battery charge for more than 2 days at a time. I also own a van so the fusion isnt used everyday. I had a new battery fitted thinking that might be the problem but when it was left for 3 days, the new battery was flat. There is no battery light illuminated on the dash and the car starts fine provided its started frequently. If i use jumpleads to start it when its flat, it will start fine the next day but leave it for 3 days and thats it. Highly annoying! Could this be the alternator or is it something draining the battery like the dvd player, radio, etc etc. Anyone else had this problem with a fusion?? Will be gratefull for any help Thanks in advance
