Hi all. Sister has a 08 ve omega

Other morning she went to start it and there was zero power...like battery disconnected. So she looked around at dash and noticed the AC controls on so turned that all off and ot came good on next start was fine....then next morning same thing but this time it was the ondicator that was switched on ao tunrd it off and next turn of key wverything worked fine.


Now we went and got battery tested at battery joint (very well known honeat people) he load tested it and it held steady for a good 15 or so seconds perfectly. He said its one of them problems that would be a **** to find unless its totally stuffed haha.

Anyone ever seen this? Could it be ignition switch?

I cleaned all main engine earths and fuse box earth plus battery terminals however all looked clean

Sounds like some electrical drain still on so the car shuts all systems down? Air con left on, indicators left on. Or is it my poor reading skills?
Maybe try switching everything off manually at shut down then test starting next morning?
