frown KA flat battery

Our daughter has a 2001 KA. Recently we tried to start it but the battery was completely flat. Have checked all the usual things which might flatten battery e.g. courtesy light left on, but have had no sucess at finding what is discharging the battery each time we charge it up.

Any ideas?

Re: KA flat battery

Is the charging light on? If not, may just be a faulty battery.

Re: KA flat battery

Thanks for your comment.
The system is charging OK (and originally thinking it could be the battery we have already bought a new battery) but the battery is discharging when all the electrics are off i.e when the car is parked.
