Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year & model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Year - Car Model - Brief description of issue. FOR EXAMPLE- ''1999 9-3 - Problems starting when hot.''

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your thread title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.


Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Just wondering whether there any known issues with a 9-3 that will cause a new battery to drain overnight?

Not sure about specific to the 9-3 but generic causes are often the glovebox light or boot light not switching off when closed.

Thanks Martin, will T2 pick it up or what's the best way to test for it?

I'm glad someone posted this. The battery on my 2009 9-3 is a new Bosch one from May of this year but goes flat after four days of non car usage. Little Charlie from next door was put in the boot to check the boot light. So, what's the ISM?

Sorry, late reply been at a wedding thrash all weekend. Thankyou for the explanation.
How does the ISM cause the battery to drain, does it cause the ignition to be permanently switched on?
