grand scenic flat battery
Our battery keeps going flat.
We replaced the battery and it still goes flat!
I have taken out he glove compartment bulb and the rear boot bulb - it still goes flat.
Once jump started, we drive it for 15 minutes and it starts fine - in fact can stop and start all day long with no problems. However, leave it overnight and try to start it in the morning and it's flat.
It's been to a garage and they detect a 1% drain on the battery when the car is shut but not locked - presumably the fact that the dash stays on.
They also found that the heater connector male and female was damaged, so a new resistor was put in. Heater works fine now. Battery still goes flat.
All info gobbled up enthusiastically.
