Hi Guys,
My wife left the ignition on and flattend the battery, I managed to jump start the car and take it for a drive, but it would stall if I didnt keep the revs up.

Is there a way I can fix this problem, I have the battery on the trickle charge to top it up. I dont want to take it to the dealer and get ripped off.

thanks

If you haven't already discovered, the battery was drained so heavily that the core memory was wasted. If you can't get the battery to hold a charge then you will have to replace the battery. If you are able to charge the battery then start driving it for 20 to 30 minutes. This will allow the battery to reload the memory and then you should be able to let the car idle.
