Hi all, I'm new to this forum.

We have a 58 plate c'eed estate and recently have been having a few battery issues. The battery seems to drain overa few hours. Having read through a few other topics on this forum it seems that a few other symptoms others have had we have too :- radio switches on after shutting ignition off, flickering lights, power steering doesn't always kick in when first starting the car. We originally thought it was the battery and was about to just go and buy a new battery however we're now thinking (after reading this forum) that it might be something more of a software issue with the radio?

I'm taking it to the dealer in a bit but in the meantime can anyone shed any light? I'm hopeful that any problem is going to be covered under warranty :confused:

Mine developed similar symptoms, though in much smaller scale.
(Lights were flickering and Radio was resetting).

Went to service and they diagnosed a poor ground on the alternator.
They cleaned it free of charge and I'm good since then.
