Drained battery doh!

Havent used my car since Wednesday evening, friday I go out and unlock it nothing , look at key fob "led working" so unlock manually, stick key in ignition nothing at all. I then check lights stalk I had left the sidelights on for around 2 days!!!!, DOH!!.

Lesson learned, although in my defence that chime isnt the loudest,if only they would turn them off with ignition!!!!.

Whoops! I leave mine on all the time (well when I forget they aren't on auto!) luckily I always hear the warning!

5w/12v=416mAX6X48h=120Amps or a more simple version 5wX6X48h=1440watts used/12v=120A

Now your battery would have died with in about 12 hours as you use 2.5A for those 6 5w bulbs an hour.

Unless you use LEDs

Does disconnecting Battery to charge require a computer reset ?

Yes I think 20 mins off the battery and the ecu resets itself, it's how I used to get rid of the IMRC solenoid fault p2004 once a week or so before I got an OBD reader.
