I think Alex says his battery keeps going flat after just 2 or 3 days. He doesn't have an alarm fitted, so what's causing it?
Alex, Take the Positive (+) battery lead off the battery and connect it to an Amp meter. Connect the other lead of the meter to the battery.
When the ignition is off the current should be almost zero (the clock etc. may use a bit of current ~ 0.5A maybe.).
If there's any bigger reading (3-4 Amps) then something is causing a short-circuit and that's draining the battery. If you take the fuses out, one at a time, then see if that changes the Amp reading, you might be able to identify what circuit is causing the problem.
If there's no current (or +/- 0.5A) then the battery might just be worn out.
