Battery Drain on 2.2CDTI is it Air con relay?
Hi i seem to have an recent issue with battery drain and just wondering what peoples thoughts are
1st week in July coming back after my hols abroad my car started and worked well on the saturday but failed to start after 2 days (flat battery) - called out Breakdown
Same day I also noticed that the coming to home lights mod wasn't working correctly the fog lights just stayed on when locking car and probably was the cause of the battery drain so i disconnected this
This seem to work fine for a week or so then i replaced a 7.5A fuse in the bonnet for the interior light as i think i may have knocked the Interior footwell kit mod wiring and caused a short circuit when troubleshooting the initial battery drain problem
For a good few days car worked well until this weekend, Sunday evening it didnt start first time ,as if the battery was not full capacity (i did drive the car around on saturday)
Anyway after charging the battery monday morning , removing the ricks footwell lighting mod too, i took the car to kwik fit who produced a receipt saying nothing wrong with battery but maybe a slight battery drain when its off.
This morning again car struggled but i got it going and got to work and im doing a cheeky internet surf to get it sorted.
So with the Coming Home lights mod removed, Footwell kit removed, i have also removed the 7.5a fuse for the interior dimming lights, im now reading that it could be the OMRON air con relay
I did replace the OEM air con relay with this omron one approx 2 months maybe a little longer ago when i was troubleshooting air cons problems,
So currently air con works fine but could this be the cause of the drain
At £35 including next day im happy to try this whats everyones thoughts
