Laguna2 Kph to miles

I have the same problem: never a moment's trouble in 3months/5000miles, then as soon as I take it to a garage (for MOT) it comes back with the odometer reading kilometres instead of miles. Seems that "the battery went flat, sir". How? -leaving all the doors open perhaps?
Anyway, to cut a long story short, they jump-started the car and undoubtedly "spiked" the computer. I feel a court case coming on.. Seriously though, there must be a fix for this? I had the same problem with a BMW 525i, and disconnecting the battery overnight cured that. I am loth to try it on the Laguna, however, as I don't want to extend the problem to my keycards/windows/tyre sensors/immobiliser.
Currently in andyjscull's garage:
2001 laguna 1.9Dci, but not for long!
