Hi, I have a 99 V Reg 2.0 SRi astra which developed this problem a year ago, i got the AA out, they said the battery was charging ok, then within 2 weeks the battery was flat again. So i spent £80 or so on a new battery from Halfords but within 2 weeks the battery is flat again. I have taken it to a garage where everything checked out, no interior light on alternator charging no drain problems etc i think they said a drain of 0.012amps which was well within limits. In warm weather the battery lasts 2 weeks in colder weather only about 1 week. I think i will have to take it to another local garage and see if they cant fix the problem, i did speak to a techician at a garage and he told me i might try taking out the relay for the alarm if it does not interfere with other items on the car and see if the battery holds it charge. Any ideas? Is this an astra problem that others have resolved? I would be interested in your views and hopefully a solution. Cheers Mel
PS ive had the car from new and its all original. no after bits fitted.
