2000 V6 3.0 S-Type Battery goes flat but....It might be my fault

Recommended Posts

Hello my car has been brilliant but....there's always a but isn't there?

The locking never worked correctly since I got it...so I just didn't bother, it appeared to be the off side passenger door which could be locked from the inside but not electronically, this played hell with the blipper so I just didn't bother, the car also had an occasional  problem on the locking after start-up as well it always locked but sometimes wouldn't unlock after stopping to the degree that you had to open the window and operate the key in order to extricate oneself..not chic!

Any way I was playing with the blipper the other day, just seeing if it had had a change of chip so to speak but all that happened is that it tried to lock, I could hear electickery happening, then it unlocked itself and flashed three times.

Since then the battery has drained itself. This normally occurs overnight when I'm in a hurry the next morning usually takes about 3 days, but has happening in both the 1 and the 2 day varieties as well.

Should I replace all the electrical switches on the doors... should I sell the car?

Any advice much appreciated

regards

Brian

The obvious answer would be to get to the root of the problem, I personally would not purchase new switches unless I fully established than one or another was actually faulty. Unfortunately, there is no easy solution here, you would need to get at the individual switches and test them one by one by applying power to it.
