Are you sure that you donīt have any electicity consumer on at all times? My father (9000 -92) had this problem, that every morning the battery was dead. I took an amperemeter and messured by pulling a fuse a time out and messure in the fusebox. I found out that the carmounted phone was using power even when the phone wasnīt on (=24hours/day). After I mounted a switch to the phone, the problem dissapered. /Fredrik SAAB 96 V4 -75
