Hi all,

Ive having a bit of an issue with my 02 year Clio. The issue appears to be with the battery, it has drained completely over night serval times. It has been in the garage previously for the same thing about a 3 month ago, they replaced the battery and all was well up until now.

I have noticed that there are some similar posts on this forum but the difference with this issue is that it only appears to happen when the car has been left out in heavy rain? I dont know if that is a factor, but it just seems a stange?

  • Lights have not been left on interior or external.
  • Car starts once jumped or battery charged.
  • No lights on dash to indicate a problem.

Any ideas anyone ?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Mark

P.S. Is there anyway to lock the boot when the battery has no charge?

It could be any number of things, but the boot light failing to go out is favourite for doing this on many cars.

Try either removing the parcel shelf or folding the seats down so that you can see into the boot when it's shut and check that the light actually goes out.

Thank you

Thank you for your quick replies, ive charged the battery fully any give the engine a general clean and check. Also now double checking all lights are fully out, before leaving the car.

Just time to wait and see now.

Thanks again.
