Hi Everyone,


My 2003 Galaxy 1.9tdi has been suffering a parasitic battery drain. It will go flat from fully charged in 2 days. I have traced the drain to the pink fuse in the engine compartment that is labeled "Alarm, multifunction modules". Removing it reduces battery drain to next to nothing.


I also have the dreaded centre locking issue (intermittent ground fault)


Could the two be connected ? i.e. is the centre locking system draining the battery whilst the car is locked because it's grounding out, and the removal of the pink fuse stops this ?


Any help gratefully received
