GTV 2.0 Ph2 battery drainage

Just a bit of a heads up guys...

I bought my GTV on saturday and last night I returned from work and the battery was dead as a doe-doe.

Turns out that the connector in the drivers door that switches on the interior lights is connected and the contact is stuck so there is a constant current travelling from the battery through the system, so it needs some attention.

The puddle lights in the door and the reading lights all stayed on and the battery just died. Completely.

Thank god for the AA...

Welcome to Alfa ownership hey?! Just goes to show how much you need to look after these cars.

Marion will need constant attention, but he will pay you back in kind
