Yep, also disconnect that new wire you installed with the diode and let the car sit and see if it flattens the battery.

will do...

also the diode we used had a slightly different code number than those 2-3 specified..(no stock at electronics shop), is that a possible problem ?

Dim..

after we spoke, I let the car idle and the battery dropped 0.3v in 15mins....It started at 12.4 went to 12.1 before I turned it off. (no lights etc on). somethings not quite right  :(

could the regulator within the alternator be stuffed ?

I'll take it for a run tomorrow and I'll check the readings before and during..
