Ive had my 96' VW Polo 1.6 GLX for over a year now. I drove it constantly for the first 5 months, where it worked fine, and then went to uni. Each time i return and try to use it.. the car wont even let me unlock the doors with the key because the battery is dead flat.. and we end up jump starting it. We did that very thing today as expected. I took it on a drive as soon as it was started at about 7pm, with about 7 miles round trip. I thought this would be enough to get some charge to last until i needed it at 11pm.. just now. Alas i was mistaken, i got in the car with the key, but it wouldnt start... ARG! Now i got a new battery for it about 3 months ago from Halfords and went for the 'better' battery. I dont think it is this at fault though really... im sure there must be some sort of drain on the battery from somewhere... Anyone had any similar problems with their batteries.. is it just a duffer?
