  1. my last one was supplied by the aa(after a callout in december2016) - prior to that i had a genuine lexus one(i was surprised how cheap it was at the time)
  2. update - car parked on saturday around 1200 - not used until 0800 this(monday) morning - started first time - it maybe that when i left it with the garage last monday, any tests/rundowns etc. that they did recharged the battery fully. one swallow does not make a summer, so i will monitor and see what happens next monday morning(i hope the weather is very cold between now and then so that it will be really tested) fingers crossed and thanks for your(S) support - knowing my luck, i parked it at 0815 this morning and will be starting it in 20 minutes time hope is is not GRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
  3. unfortunately i have no way of doing any tests on current draw etc. etc. i have had the battery tested elsewhere and the conclusion is the same(there is nothing wrong with the battery). i have spoken to lexus and a reputable garage and they have quoted as follows for a diagnostic test :- lexus - £117.60(will be deducted from any work that needs doing by them as a result of the diagnostic) garage - £100.80 - non deductable. i plan to check all the lights again(heaven knows how i check the boot(wish it was a hatchback)) but i may remove the bulb(i assume that no bulb no current) - and probably wait until next monday(to replicate the last 2 mondays)) and if the battery goes dead, call the aa out to get me going and take it to lexus or the reputable garage. sounds logical?
  4. many thanks. silly questions time(please get accustomed to this) - 1. even though the interior lights are not visibly on when i lock the car, is there anyway that they could still be on and if so how do i ensure that they are definitely off? 2. how do i ensure that the light in the boot is off?
  5. over the past 2 mondays(30 october and 06november), i have had a flat battery after leaving the car idle from the previous saturday afternoon. i have no problems driving to and from work 7.5 miles each journey monday thru friday 0800-0825 and 1700-1730 the aa have come out and they have confirmed that my battery is fine(they supplied it in december 2016 and it s under a 4 year warranty). it has been looked at by a local garage and they can find nothing that is draining the battery when the car is idle. has anyone experienced a similar situation and has anyone any theories? i am about to replace the battery and if that does not resolve the problem take the car to lexus(arm and a leg springs to mind)
