That’s all very technical for me lol ..... Just didn’t know if you noticed the post ..... my dealer although by no means my nearest is in Newbury and find them excellent I’m fault finding John is very knowledge able if you have no joy might be worth a call
Haha. Cheers. My local dealer is Reading is very close, but considering they weren't able to find the problem the first time....and cost my a fortune... I am reluctant to take it back. I might try Newbury or find an independent Volvo specialist.

Quite easy to find cause
Parasitic Drain
If battery has been flattened so many times it will be damaged and a new on his required again.
So just performed a parastic drain test. My multimeter is jumping between 10-20mA. So quite low. Not enough to drain the battery so quickly.

Guess I should be careful what I say about dealerships now but I have heard similar feedback from people that have beenReading)there.strangely they are all part of the same group now -I believe ...... including Oxford ( that would be my nearest) I find Fawcetts at Newbury have the customer values, service and knowledge I expect from a dealer .......
