    I have a Range Rover 2005 with the 3,0 Diesel engine, only gone appr. 35k miles. I have the same issue i.e. the battery goes flat, not overnight though but if the car is not moved in 4-5 days, the battery is flat. I have had the battery renewed, but still the same, what do you guys think, alternator? or maybe current drain as the battery seems to be drained over a few days time...

If the battery goes flat overnight but works fine when driving there are only two possibilities. either the battery is faulty and not holding charge or there is a current drain on the electrical system when standing. have your battery drop tested if ok check that current drain does not exceed 50 miliamps with everything switched off . common causes of drain are boot lamps, glove box lamps, faulty relays, faulty cigarette lighter sockets,and leaky diodes in alternator. to check for these try pulling fuses one at a time to find the faulty circuit. hope this helps

Try changing the battery terminals to brass.
Take a good look under the hood for exposed wires.
Clean light bulb holders and headlamp connection harness.

My battery keeps going flat


You need to get the alternator checked as it keeps the battery charged. If you have a multimeter, then connect it to the battery with the engine running. It should show around 13 to 14 volts. If it shows 12 or so, then the alternator is not working.

My 2008 Range Rover Vogue TDV8 keeps draining the battery. This is the second time I have had to call AA to jump start me....Is this a commong problem with these cars ?


The Range Rover runs system even when you have locked the car and walked away, you can often here the fan on the computer running from inside the front wheel arch. What can happen is if there is an error caused by a faulty sensor then the computer fails to shot down and instead runs all night until the battery goes flat. Best thing is to get fault codes read and start to try and figure out what exactly is causing it to happen. I would say that this is a common problem but most people don't realise why its happened as they only realise when the car has gone flat.

My range rover battery keeps going flat after 3 days of no use, Help


You have what we call a parastic load aka key off drain.Disconnect the negative battery cable from its post and put an ammeter in series with post and cable.
Then start pulling fuses until voltage returns to normal.You can do this with a test light too, however the ammeter is more accurate. I'm not sure what is the amperage draw limit for your vehicle is but as a guide line figure at about a half a volt or 0.50 amps.
