A battery that goes flat quickly and charges quickly has lost much of its capacity and is usually at the end of its life.
That's why I asked about the full story rather than get it in bits, it's certainly not unknown for a battery to be faulty within a short time, getting it tested would be the first step, but ideally somewhere other than the supplier, who has an interest in declaring it in good order.A one year old battery going flat, obviously a drain somewhere or a faulty battery.
Are you able to say how transport mode is turned on. I have looked at my hand book but can't find any reference. Thanks, JohnYou can put the car into "Transport Mode".
Transport Mode reduces the electrical load on the battery when the vehicle is parked to prolong battery stand time. When enabled, the red battery indicator light on the instrument cluster will flash and the Driver Information Centre will display a Transport Mode On message.
