flat battery x 2 type s gt 1.8
I have Typs S GT 2007 1.8 Petrol early Nov. (so out of warranty)
The battery went dead just less under less month ago, I think it could have been the wipers left on AUTO, so since then I've been extra careful to make sure nothing is on AUTO etc (after reading some threads on here)
Yet this morning it was pretty much flat, I tried staring it but after a couple or so tries it went completely flat...
The odd thing is unlike last time I was able to unlock the car via my key fob but as soon as I pressed START *ALL* the lights on the dashboard would flash.
It was service around 4 weeks ago, battery checked out ok, it was also ok'ed by the AA.
The only possible thing I can think of is one of my wing mirrors is slower than the other, is it possible it keeps trying to close even after I shut everything down...(I do wait the extra second or so before it finally shuts).
Should I take it to my local mechanic, buy a emergency started kit? Is there something I can use to check if the battery is being drained?
