i am having a dead battery after leaving my car alone for 3 days. i have had a new battery fitted and the problem persists. alternator output has been checked.
i have read several posts on here about how to try to find the leak. i have also read and tried to follow the wikihow guide
i follow the instructions:
- set the meter to read DC current.
- disconnect the negative lead.
- connect one meter probe to the battery post
-connect the other meter probe to the negative cable.
but i dont get any readings on my multimeters ( i have tried 2 meters)
on any of the settings.
other things to note:
the alarm goes off when the battery lead is taken off. when the meter is connected as above i cant get the alarm to switch off (the alarm or car dont respond to the key buttons) the boot lights or any light for that matter dont work.
i must be doing something very wrong or my car is configured different.
advice is so very desperately needed. i need the car daily now for the school run and cant have an unreliable car..
