Parasitic Battery Drain On 2004 Focus Ghia 2.0(Mark 1)
Posted 27 December 2012 - 01:00 AM
Battery drains suddenly overnight.First garage diagnosed hands- free kit,so i removed this from car.
Problem was still there,so i went to a specialist auto electrical diagnostic centre,who kept the car for 2 days then informed me that the cd/radio unit(original Ford 6006 multi-changer)was at fault.I replaced this with a JVC unit and-yes,you've guessed it!,battery drained again overnight.
After running the car with the CD unit disconnected for over 12 months with no problems,i did some research online which gave me the idea that it could simply be the fuse at fault,so i replaced the 15 amp fuse and all was well for about 3 months until the gremlins struck again.I have now removed the fuse,but the lack of music is driving me mad.By the way,ihave bought 2 batteries over this time,the better one being a Bosch heavy duty item which has been checked,and found to be perfect.
I wonder if anyone has any ideas,or perhaps experienced the same problem?

It may well be that the battery and ignition feed wires need swapping so the radio drops to minimum power when all turned off.
