Have you fitted anything 'new' which could have caused the problem?
No I haven't fitted anything new that can cause this problem. I have fitted a permanently live power outlet socket but this was done after I first had the "drain" problem. I suspect a sticking relay that has freed itself up now as there is no sign of a drain and the car is working great - touch wood!
