    Hi all!

    Hi everyone, just bought a 2006 GT and joined the club, really proud to be a part of this community. I got the car with the warning that it had the dreaded battery drain. It was dead 2 days after purchase, have managed to keep the battery going with a tender charger and the alternator, touch and go after 8 hours or so! Battery checked and all good, alternator works, car alarm ruled out and boot light switches off when closed. Sjb shows signs of slight corrosion, also believe the sound system / amp may be involved. So, anyone know where to get a new SJB from in the UK? Or am I US shopping? Or should I look at the amp etc first? Previous owner has put an android head unit in, tried the meter and fuse pull trick but nothing changed, any advice would be hugely appreciated. I'm in Stockport if you know anyone nearby. Thanks, ant

    Welcome to the forum Ant. My battery goes flat every now and again, I thought I had traced it to a corroded wire on a light socket but not convinced, time will tell. Having a water damaged SJB is not a good start, you need to stop the water getting into your car. SJB will probably need to come from the US and make sure you get the right one. Contact NIck (NMH) on here as he is our expert on such things.
    Do you mind if I ask, are you Ant as in Ant & Dec ??

              Always worth discussing any SJB issues with NMH on here, he has a very good understanding of the things that can go wrong and how to rectify them appropriately.
