I work away from home and wifes 2009 cmax 1.6 petrol car has started playing up.
When she starts it she says she hears a click, car wont start, ignition off start again all ok.
Also she says when at traffic lights she pulls off slowly car races off.
She took it into garage they put it on code reader and told her fault is either the radio or dash needs to be sent off to be rewired?
So she has driven it for a few days with radio out all ok for a few days then she tried starting again , no go, wait a while then started all ok.
Has anyone heard of this problem? Its a lot of money the garage will charge, im not home so cannot check any advise would be great thanks.

check the dash lights after 15mins after locking the car / they should turn off , if they don't then you have a drain like the garage say.
you can remove fuses to the radio etc to find which item is the drain (ie pull the fuses and test to see if the drain remains)
