G' Day Bill, Sounds like there's some drain on the battery when the car is not beng driven. Could it be a glove box light? How about disconnecting the battery for a week or three and see if it still goes flat? Of course you'll need to input the the radio code when you reconnect it. If you have a digital multimeter try setting it to current (amps) range and see if you can measure any discharge by disconnecting the ground post on the battery and connecting the meter between the ground post and ground lead. -- Regards, John Hudson Brisbane Australia 1993 900i 2.1 16 v.
