    Battery drain

    New Bosch battery fitted a few months ago. Went to start car last Monday morning after car sitting since Saturday night and it was completely flat. Got it jumped and it was ok up until this morning again, it's not completely flat but hasn't enough power to start the car. I drove the car last night with no problems. Any ideas

    As the battery was drained you should get it charged fully by an external battery charger - driving the car (using the alternator) will not get the battery back to a full state of charge and will lead to the battery becoming ineffective prematurely.
