Something Is Draining The Battery

02 April 2013 - 11:49 PM

Hi guys


Well my 59 fiesta has developed a strange fault, basically something is draining the battery (until it is dead), after a little messing about I have found that if I sit in the car with the key out of the ignition and the doors locked I can her a fan cutting in and out intermittently, this fan is somewhere on the drivers side and I think it is to do with the EATC (but that's a guess), does any one have any ideas on what can be causing this. It is pulling about 1.6A when it is on, when it is off it goes down to 0.3A.


Also in addition to that the voice control has gone off, press the button, noting happens.


and also just in case it is related every so often when I put the car into revers the AC kicks in on full fans, this is intermittent though.


Because of everyone breaking down over the bank holiday, I'll not be able to get Ford to look at it until next Wednesday, so any help or pointers will be greatfully received.


Other than that the car is great. :(
