Hi folks, I posted a thread a while back - my GTV was working fine, but a couple of months ago the battery drained when the car was left standing. Originally this happened when left for about 4 days - then this gradually became 2, so the battery would drain over a weekend.
After some advice from the forum I decided to buy a new battery, which seemed fine for a couple of weeks - but then when trying to start her up yesterday the battery had drained, so that I could only just turn the starter (not enough juice to start the car).
I've been to a garage today to get the alternator tested and apparently it's fine - tested under full load the battery has 14v across it.
So, I must have an electrical drain / earth short somewhere. I've checked all the obvious things, boot light doesn't work anyway, glove compartment light definitely switches off OK, positive connections to battery seem sound and tight.
I'm going to see some Car Electric 'specialists' this week, and so wanted to know if there are any specific areas worth checking before I go?
