    Battery / alternator problem

    What are the signs of a dodgy alternator? I bought a new battery bout 6 months ago and I didn't use my car for 4 days and it's flat as a pancake. Any ideas why this has happened. Cheers

    If your alternators dodgy your battery light will be on all the time or not come on at all when your first switch the ignition on

    You could have a current drain on the battery
