Cant solve your problem, but can tell you we have had lots of dead battery problems and each time Chrysler has said it is a faulty battery and replaced it (4 in 3 years). Seems strange to me that i have never had a faulty battery in any other car. Today our battery came close to exploding, (it was still too hot to touch after 2 hours). RACQ have told us they believe alternator is overcharging and to get it immediatley replaced (or regulator) and not to drive till fixed. They said that if it had exploded it would have taken out front end of car. We were doing 110km along Bruce highway at time. Scarey!!.<br />We are now just out of warranty, so probably have a fight on our hands.<br />Ian.<br /><br /> <!-- from fixya rte -->

Battery goes flat over two weeks when run every day or whilst standing when not used for several days. New battery fitted. Alternator is charging OK.

If you are postive the battery and alternator is good, you probably have a short somewhere. Not a low resistance short that will blow a fuse - but current is leaking somewhere.
Have you been getting shocked lately when exiting/entering the car?

I have just bought a 2007 grand voyager 2.8crd. in p or n it wont rev over 2500rpm is this normal? also when you try there is a whistling sound? turbo? is there a turbo. also the cabin heater light keeps...

The vehicle DOES have a rev limiter when in P or N. The whistle is the governor allowing air into the intake to detune the engine to linit the revs. The cabin heater light is for the AUX CABIN HEATER. It is diesel powered and will light when operating to maintain the set cabin temp. It has its own exhaust that comes out under the side of the vehicle. It can even run for a few minutes after the vehicle is turned off. That is normal.

It was left running all night and now its hard to stir, battery dies(but its good) and the belt has broken twice

If the belt is bad, the alternator can't charge the battery. I would get it started and take it to a parts store to check the charging system and battery. If the belt is installed wrong or is too tight, it will affect the alternator.
