    Post Renault Clio 1.2, V reg. Flat Battery

    The battery on my Clio keeps going flat after a few days of non driving. Have changed the battery. Checked the charging which peeks at 15v when accelerating, about 14.8 on tickover.
    I have found that there is a current drain of 150mA when switched off. Is this too high? I comes from a 5A fuse which supplies the timer module/diagnostic socket. I've tried running the car with this fuse out. It runs OK but the indicators and intermittent wipe do not work and the immobiliser light and engine fault light come on.

    Yes that's way too high. Maybe an internal fault in the body module, timer module or a bad relay or terminal. Sounds like a job for an auto electrician.
