My 407 (2007) battery is draining fast (draining current = 0.7 -1 A). I changed the battery, didn't help. I have checked all the fuse and only one which stops draining is a shunt fuse in the fuse box under the steering wheel. What are connected to that circuit? What should I check next?

Don't know about shunt fuse without having a look, but is it sw or saloon as sw has a known issue which leads to battery drain.

Is bsi been kept awake? Should be able to tell if mileage display is constantly lit.

Turn interior alarm sensors off to see if this make a difference.

Mileage display is not constantly lit. I even tried to reboot bsi, but I don't know when it's successfully rebooted. :lol:

How I can turn interior alarm sensors off?

Battery Drain

Hi.... I had this problem with my 1.6 407, it turned out to be the glow plug relay sticking on, cost £80 inc fitting and diagnosis. I tried 3 different garages before finding fault. I had to take the battery lead off every time I park a real pia.

I took it to an electrical auto specialist... car concepts in Aylesbury.. Highly recommended, if your anywhere near bucks:thumb:

volt meter set on amp reading disconnect battery negative connect amp meter on negative lead and negative terminal don't open doors or any thing on the car after a few minutes the volt meter will go down as car shuts down . I tried a few fuses f4 fascia 1 glove box was the one but it also does the alarm. I then took fuse out of the back of rt3 in where large connector is 5 amp fuse put the f4 back in tried drain test again all shut down okay no drain on battery then it was just luck finding it was the control panel i tried changing bit by bit of rt3 as i didn't want to buy used one.
