Large Electrical Power Drain

02 September 2014 - 03:11 AM

Hi we have a 54 plate 1.4tdci +
If we don't drive the car every day the battery goes dead flat (ie if not used on Sunday wont start for work next day)
So far we have tried:-
- leaving car locked / unlocked
- boot bulb removed
- interior light switched off
- roof dvd def switched off
- new battery fitted (even though old one checked out ok ---- now used on mini digger!!!!)
- put volt meter on battery and removed each fuse in turn --- only one using any power was ironically marked up as 'battery saver'!!!!!!!
To my mind it must be something quite meaty to drain the battery to such an extent so quickly --- any help or ideas please.
Many thanks
