After doing a few checks, taking on board above advise and further reading up. I have conducts a parasitic drain test on the cars battery and it is showing a small drain of approx. 1 to 1.5amps drain coming from one of the electrical components. However it has been noted this isn't happening every time! After checking it seems to be potential faulty door handle sensors, that seem to work, but maybe a loose wire or something causing occasional short circuit.? honest don't know for certain.
Also noted on the internet that some vehicles can show signs of weird electrics even if the battery is low and not particularly a fault.
Noting the wife only drives approx. 6-7 miles most days I believed the battery isn't getting enough time to recharge after the initial start up.
So I have been driving her car for a few days to get battery well charged and fingers crossed.. if problem goes away then happy days, I'll keep you posted.
Was thinking 'why it happens only when raining?' .. again thinking if the battery isn't getting enough charge on short drive even when dry, then on a wet day with lights, wipers etc on, the battery would be getting even less a charge.. hence making it seem like its the wet weather, when its just the battery is low!. It a theory.. feedback welcome. :-)
Please keep suggestions coming. Greatly appreciated.
