Hi Troy ... You mention 'power saver' relay .....if this was faulty or not activating as intended, am I right in thinking lots of the cars tech. Would be left active so maybe causing power drain?
Any idea of its location in car, and I will try and check its functionally?
Thanks for your thoughts

Hi --- thanks for your thoughts;-
-the car starts really well in all weathers (if used every day!!!)
-the alternator gives a good output (checked with meter) and def charges battery as once car has been 'jumped' on monday runs all week with no additional charging (bare in mind it is normally totally flat)
-the car does a reasonable trip each time it is started and hardly ever does short trips (we live out in the sticks a bit!)
As you will appreciate we can aleaviate problem by putting car on charge at weekend but I would like to sort problem out if i can.
-My view (for what its worth!!) is there is a circuit remaining open that would normally shut down when car is switched off and it is quite a major system due to the speed of the run down? As mentioned initally the only open circuit (by fuses) is the one marked'battery saver' but obviously other items must run off this fuse --- any ideas
