Electrical Problem

Recommended Posts

mickypolo

Hi, I am having a problem with my 6n2 which has been happening for a while now.The car is only being used at the weekends now as the wife has unfortunately had a stroke and her licence has been revoked,anyway i intend to keep the car until she gets her licence back at the end of the year hopefully .

With the car standing so long i have been getting starting problems which i initially though was the battery discharging because of lack of use.Anyway i replaced the Battery with  lion 40 amh brand new one from ECP as recommended by them on the website but after a week its as flat as a tod.I have replaced the Voltage Regulator on the Alternator and replaced the Coil Pack as this had cracks underneath it.

The question is would the battery drain that much after only a week .The car runs well once its started.???Any ideas anyone .

If you have a multimeter, here are some checks to see if the alternator is OK https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/topic/335902-testing-your-alternator/  also this VW service buletin on checking battery drain  vw.tb.27-07-11 Battery Discharged Diagnosis for Static Current Draw.pdf  and remember it will take about 20 mins of normal running to put back the charge that starting the engine took out
