My new Bosch super-duper battery lasted a week

Changed the battery on my '06 EX because it would only last about a week and now this one has the same problem.

It could be the alternator, but I've also heard that it might need a new fuse box because of a design fault. Could this be true on a '06 EX model.
Help appreciated.

im sure if you take it to the dealers, he can enter your reg, and see if it needs the fuse box update matey.

Thanks for the reply. If it needs an update, would it be free as it must be a design fault?

Have done. Isn't that just the '08's? Mines a '06.

And is a week of no driving, no auto lights/wipers on etc. long enough to drain a new battery.

Thanks for replies.
