... My motto is 'check by actually checking' ... many people 'assume' and then present it as fact

Very true.... I do trust my shop guys... However no one can know everything about a make of car and even if they do they'll still forget something eventually....

if you have new batteries and the same problem .. definatley perform a quiescent draw test , go through the usual senarios on how the vehicle is used most shops won't have the time or patients to actually wait and figure stuff out like this

Especially hard to do when it is linked to rain.

You saw my cars ... the answer is no.

My first lotus had a draw issue. Turned out when it rained the humidity was causing an issue with the ignition switch. No direct water was getting it, just when it was humid enough it would draw current.

Looks like I'm going to have to dabble in the dark arts of electrickery as the shop is sure it is nothing to do with the leak. They told us there is definitely no permanent live in the rear of the car. So I open the boot lid take off the side cover and there is a light red light winking at me from the satnav.... So straight away I've found a live..... Thanks for all the advice....

update. put i the new ignition module ran great for couple thousand miles. procrastinated on the alternator.... then it started stalling, missing again, but this time when it did it, it would not idle and it missed like a cyliner was not firing. the tach would delay a bit when it would rev for a second. if is shut it off and turned back on, immediately it would run fine again. (i did put a new stepper in also) so i threw out the new o'reilly's alternator and put in a rebuilt bosch unit. we will see how it goes....

I put on a new 0/1 gauge neg battery cable from napa & bolted it to the cross member & then ran a short cable from the block to the frame & it did the trick.
