2003 Mercedes Benz S430 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 50,000 miles
Hi. We recently purchased a used, well maintained 2003 MB S430.
A new battery was put in the car in Nov '08 just before we bought it.
The battery has gone dead 3 times over the past 4 months, after leaving it stored for just 2 or 3 weeks!
Our "general mechanic" checked the draw when everything is turned off, and found no short nor exceptionally high draw of the battery.
He suggests we should use a trickle charger of some type, but, that just seems inconvenient.
He suggested this is common for these models. Is it?
Can I remove a fuse on a circuit that has a large draw that doesn't require resetting information, and doesn't control a system that's important when the car is stored?
you didn’t answer my question. It was “is this type of problem typical of these models"? And/or “can I remove a fuse on a circuit that has a large draw that doesn’t require resetting information?"…. The 2nd question is most important…. Thanks …. Ross
have the same problem?
