I have an 86 xf falcon, i have a battery drain and was wondering if any one can give me some tips on locating it.
I have checked the boot light and interior light and I have bought a new battery. this is also completly dead if i leave the car for a couple of days without driving it.
cheers

I would start at the fuse panel. Shut everything down, get a multimeter and measure the current though each circuit. Might lead you in the right direction.
