In Topic: Battery Problems

02 February 2014 - 10:16 PM

I have a 1.4 petrol 2004 It came my way through family. I would often run it down her drive and bump start it (5 years ago). This car was not used very much. When it came my way I put a new battery on it and it was perfect..or was it.  I use this car occoasionally and a few months later I had a flat battery. I had not thrown away the old battery it was in the shed. I charged it up and put it on placing the new one on charge. And that is the way I go. If the battery seems low which is only if it has not had a decent run for ages, I swap batteries. Just to give you a clue, I change the battery no more than once a year. I now take it for a run, 30 miles or so, once every 3 weeks and I have not changed it for a year or so. But the winter is not demanding. The battery is in use all the time with various sensors working, it needs a run preferably without lights and wipers or charge it.

I have not heard of this but you need to investigate. Is this a faulty switch or a short somewhere. As the car is quite new I am suprised that the motor leaks. You will probably have to prize the plastic off using sometheing like a palette knife there will be quite a few hidden fixings.
