Put new battery in my fiat brava but it still goes flat after a couple of days

it takes your battery to start your vehicle, once started the electrical power is genereated by your alternator, if your altnernator is bad or going bad the car then relies on the battery for the electrical power, the battery will go down or dead because it cannot sustain a charge.
it sounds like you need to test your alternator and maybe replace it.

The light on the radio of my fiat brava stays on even when the radio is turned off and it drains the battery. Can you help me? Thank You

someone put the memory and "switched " wire in the same power source , usually yellows "constant" and reds "switched" see in there if those wires are tgether coming from the radio, if so, seperate them then use a 12 volt test light to fuse box while turning cars key on and off till u get a flashing action from the test light .... thats youre switched source

If the head gasket is starting to go, the the water gets vapourized inside the engine. The water level will go down, sometimes you get white smoke from the exhaust, the car consumes more fuel and has less compression and performances.

If you are lucky, and you check the water you can drive a car with bad head gasket for many miles, before it blows completely and leave you on the middle of a motorway.

If the head gasket is starting to go better to fix it or to replace the car.

The part costs only thirty pounds or so here in UK, but the job is expensive, as you need to take apart the head.
Here in UK you dont pay less than four hundreds pounds, probably a bit more, depending on the garage.

Timing belt problem on fiat brava

i recomend you to buy a book with the timing marks because i had the same problem and i have one of the best repair information software online and that could not even help me
this type of car has to many marks and you need to make sure where they go, but if the timing belt still complete and in the car all what you have to do is mark it with liquid paper or some kind of ink and put it back the same way

The head unit should have two separate +12V connections: One that goes to a switched 12V power that is switched on/off via the ignition and one that is always energized at +12V. If the head unit's switched +12V lead is not connected, the unit will not turn on (except for when +12V is first applied to the "always on" lead, in which case it will immediately eject the CD). Please respond if this is not the issue. Hope this helps!
