Smax Battery Drain

30 October 2012 - 05:37 PM

I keep coming across some similar topics, but never seem to find the answer.

The battery on my SMax reptitively drains very quickly. I have had my 2007 Smax Titanium 2.0 TDi for nearly 2.5years, so just 6 months to run on my warranty and I am desperate to get the problem sorted and at Ford's expense! The problem has occurred numerous times over the last 2years and every time I take it back to ford they have a play and tell me they have solved it or blame it on me leaving the lights on.

Now the battery is fine (according to the AA who have been called out 30 plus times to start my car) and I am not going mad yet so it is not me leaving the lights on.

Some strange things happen with the lights e.g. I can park the car up at night, turn all lights off and then return to the car an hour later and my right indicator / parking lights will be on. I can also put my keys in the ignition and the indicator light will be flashing even though the indicator lever is off. Ford replaced the indicator lever last time claiming it was faulty thinking that was solution. However, two weeks later I have just dropped it back to Ford Dagenham in Hounslow with another flat battery.

All help welcome. Thanks
