Hook an amp meter or ammeter up to the neg. or pos. lead at the battery. If it drains more than .2 Amps then it is drawing too much power in its dormant ignition off state.

Try to take the vehicle to a battery retailer that will have a starting/charging/battery tester that can pinpoint data on your vehicle as to whether the battery itself is bad, or if there is an excessive drain on the car, or if the car is not charging the battery sufficiently.

Good luck on this repair.

The ABS relay on the E36 316 compact is the red relay in the fuse box, which as u look under the bonnet is on the right hand side towards the back of the engine bay. If that is of any help to you?
