Although I've been a member here for a few years , having had a few VAG cars myself , these days it is mainly for knowledge relevant to the various VW cars run by family members . My daughter has had her Polo 9N for almost three years - it is a 52 reg 1.4 petrol automatic car . While the car generally runs well , it has had one ongoing problem , that the battery often runs down to dead flat . I used to largely blame this on the fact that my darling daughter hardly drives the car , tending to pinch her mum's new Mini whenever she can , rather than use her own petrol !!
Wondering if anyone could help on this. I’ve recently bought a 9N3 GTI, it’s had a new battery fitted within the last month or so and it keeps going flat. I’ve taken the negative wire off and done a drain test, it’s draining at 4-4.5amp, so the battery goes flat in no time. Haven’t had the time to start pulling out fuses, but wondered if anyone else has had any similar issues? Any help would be appreciated. All lights are off, boot light is disconnected etc.
