I've just had the same problem with my 406..HDI 1999 (T) Replaced the battery last night after it had gone completely flat 2 or 3 times over the course of 3 weeks. Went to start the car this morning and the solenoid wouldn't even click as the battery is so discharged.

I checked the current drain last week (before I changed the battery) and it settled down at about 17mA 3 or 4 minutes after locking. When running the alternator spits out 14V.

Has anyone any idea what can cause such a massive current drain to flatten a brand new battery in less than 12 hours?

Thanks,
Nat

hi further to the problem of starting overnight. ichanged my starter motor to a recon one a friend said when starters start to wear out they can draw alot more power from the battery when they are cold making it look like its a flat battery. seems to have worked so far its starting fine at the moment.
