    Car won't start - HELP PLEASE

    Scenario:

    1. Bought car
    2. A few days later it won't start (clicking noise from engine when turning the key?). No lights/bulbs left on.
    3. Got it jump started but still doesn't start alone
    4. New Bosch battery fitted - seems ok now
    5. A week later battery is dead so doesn't start?!!
    Anyone tell me what's going on please? Meanwhile I'll be having words with the dealer I bought it from

    Thanks!

    as swilko has suggested m8, or something else draining the battery, glovebox light staying on etc, do a search on this m8

    its either the althernator or somthing intrevanously draining or discharging the battery especialy when the engine is off.
    does the car have an aftermarket stereo, parrot kit, neon wash wiper lights, E.T.C.
    GET THE CAR OVER TO AN EXPERIENCED AUTO ELECTRICIAN to get it plugged and tested.

    Do you have Bluetooth ? I'm sure I've read on here somewhere that certain Bluetooth units can cause serious battery drain !

    yea sounds like a dead autonator or somehting is sucking juice from it

    o you have a volt meter? what's the voltage of the battery whilst the car is running?
