Rottydjt posted a topic in General Ford Related DiscussionsDear All, Can anyone help? If my Son's ford fiesta 1.4 ztec tdci special edition is left for a period of more that 48 hours, without running the engine, it flattens its battery? We have checked all the obvious that no lights are left on and have even gone to the lengths of turning off the auto headlights wipers and anything else "auto" just in case these circuits are faulty and putting a drain on the battery. We have also replaced the battery in case the recent spell of cold weather had caused the original battery to fail? when you do a current test from the battery with the ignition off the current drain appears normal i.e. powering the alarm system clock etc? I had the car recovered yesterday, under warranty by the AA, to our local Hendy ford dealership, unfortunately the AA scout did not do as I had asked and just recover the vehicle in the condition it was in (I wasnt at home when he picked up the car) and got the car started. He also reset the diagnostics so when it arrived at the garage they have told me they cannot find a fault!....very frustrating why cant people just do as they have been asked!!?? Now we are waiting for Hendys who are going to keep the car over the weekend to see if the fault reappears!! Any help would be much appreciated. All the best, Dave
