Constant draining, bought 6 months ago as temp car. Within 2 days, I go out to start it and it's dead, battery didn't match the receipt for new one in paperwork I got with car, so I went got a new yuasa one, all OK for a week then again I don't use for a day and it's flat again. Have turned everything off, no lights on in boot, and it constantly drains. Hooked up meters for voltage spikes and left on overnight with nothing popping up.
Car had new starter and alternator before I had it, Checked voltage on battery when engine cranks and goes to over 14v, then suddenly you are driving battery light comes on and you end up broken down as battery depletes. Got a new battery last week all good, used daily, alternator still showing as charging, but again today battery light pops on, this car is possessed and the only thing it's good for is scrap

Not yet, just went and tested it again and now it doesn't appear to charge any more as once started it dropped to 11.7v, already ended up paying out too much on this temp car repairing things it just doesn't seem worth it anymore as just after I mot it last Nov to sell I let my son and gf use it and the brakes failed on them, had to have all new rear cylinders and pads, so maybe the thing can go to the scrappers now as hubby won't pay out anymore on it lol

A lot of these " reconditioned " alternators are rubbish . You could check the wiring / connections at alternator and also battery connections and any earth wire usually from engine / gearbox to body .
