Hi all
First post and I'm after some advice. :thumbs:

Our Alfa 147 (2002) has an electrical issue. When it has been left for several days then the battery will be flat and will not start. The battery has been replaced recently so happy that this is not the problem.

Here is some facts about the problem.
Charging voltage is +14.5 V
Voltage when car car battery is flat reads +3.75V

In an un powered state (engine off, doors closed) the current draw on the battery is 700ma
In this state I have tried to identify where the draw is coming from. By removing F48 (20A Passenger door Control Unit Supply) and F35 (7.5A) Reversing Light / Climate Control System Controls Lighting) the current draw = zero.

Can anyone help on what could be wrong. not sure where to start on these 2 circuits, obviously something is staying powered when it shouldn't be.

Many thanks for your help - great forum!

Hiya, fairly convinced its not the lights, usually walk past the car when dark and would have noticed.
Cheers
