My best friend for the past 4 years is very sick and i need your help. I drive a Vespa ET4 125 that seems to have a small electrical issue. About 9 Months ago she had some problems starting which i discovered was the battery being quite old and had run out of Liquid. I got a new battery but maybe 2 months later i had problems starting. The battery seemed to be charging fine (according to the meter the RAC people used) and the only explanation that either RAC or my Service Boys could come up with that the pitiful amount of distance that i was driving it (It was about 1 mile twice a weekday) I then moved house and job and had to drive my baby half way round the M25 (56 miles in total of very hard driving) This, of course would be a long enough drive to completely charge the battery but to my surprise about a week later it would not start. I then took her in for in MOT and they put in a new battery thinking that the other new one i had had was a duff battery. This worked perfectly until 2 months until, you guessed it, it wouldn't start.
This is where my story gets complicated. My bike would not start on Monday or Tuesday of the week, i then phoned up and booked her in so my boys could have a look, she then worked perfectly on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, I then cancelled the boys hoping for the best. The next week she would not work Monday or Tuesday, I attempted to book her in again but the boys were fully booked, and then refused to work afterwards at all. Now this is were i come in. In order to get to work on all the days she wouldn't start i was jump starting her off the Car. On the Wednesday i was very rushed and crossed the jump leads causing a categorical failure of all electric's. This was caused by blowing a fuse and with this replaced none of the lights work(either a fuse or bulbs have blown).
In conclusion the help i need is this: What could be causing the drain on my battery so it will not work after sitting for a weekend but work afterwards (the only thing i could think off was the immobiliser but i have been told this uses very little power)
and how do i find out whether it is the bulbs or the fuse that has blown to get my lights working.
I have given up on the mechanics working this out because they are expensive and still have not solved the problem. I love my baby very much and she was such a good runner before this all started and i don't want to get rid of her but i hate the bus and need a solution soon.
PLEASE HELP THIS POOR MECHANICALLY IGNORANT LITTLE GIRL!
