hi my vs has had a few issues with battery and alternater, ie ; battery has been replaced with new one , alternater has had main batt wire burn out and i,ve replaced about 10 cm of wire . however the car sat for 3 days battery went completly dead down to about 9volts, after recharging went to put back into car lots of sparking at terminals is this normal ? NOT QUITE SURE IF ITS A SHORT OR some power drain

must be a good drain of power somewhere you will get a slight zap when connecting it but nothing major just the ecu backup power and stereo memory etc might be a short somewhere unplug the red off the alternator and see if it does it

thanks for the advice, the replacement wire i put in had started to melt again .and appeared to be shorting out. i,ve now replaced it again with a peice of heavy batt cable so heres hoping thats done the trick . only thing is i think it may have stuffed the battery. appreciate your help
