    Battery going flat

    Hi all,
    we have a 2011 Touran 1.6 TDI I fitted a new battery when we bought the car approximately 1 month ago, my daughter doesn’t use it that much but we found when it was left for around 2 weeks over Xmas the battery went flat does anybody know what drains the battery when the car is not in use. We have checked the obvious interior lights staying on etc:

    That isn't easy to diagnose on the web. You could get this new battery rechecked.

    You could have something draining the battery so you need to check the current draw with an ammeter with everything switched off. Pull each fuse and see if the current drops then you know which circuit you need to investigate.
