    The cab battery on my Exsis 2004 Ducato, has dropped from full to half charge in the last week. The battery is only a year old.
    There must be something draining it but what?
    It does have a 'Phantom Tracker' fitted but I don't know if this could be the culprit.
    Any suggestions more than welcome.

    Thanks

    As has been said before, remove the negative lead and reconnect an ammeter between the lead & the battery negative post with the ignition switched off. This will showwhat drain you have on the battery & you can then investigate further by pulling fuses one by one to see which circuit is the offending one/s.
    Good luck :Eek!:
