Re: Battery keeps going flat : ( (Electrical leak)
At rest with everything off you should be taking pretty close to zero; sounds like something is eating the juice.
Flick the boot light off (there is a switch on it), remove the key from the ignition, don't arm the alarm, shut everything off (don't forget the interior lights!) and see what reading you get.
If the juice is being eaten then some investigation is required.
On the other hand, if it's not then either both your batteries were fairly flat to start or the alternator is not charging them back up. Give one a full overnight charge and see where you go.
I just had to shell out on one for my 2002 car. Old age and lack of use had got to it.
Another daft thought, but what rating are your batteries? The GTV needs a fairly beefy battery (70Ah 120A for the V6).
