Hi,  I am new to this but in dire need of help.  Our 1999 Amazon is behaving very oddly.  The batteries were draining very fast. If the key was left
in, in about 6 minutes.  We took it to our locasl mechanice who played around wtih it for weeks and then did the folllowin'
'found 35 amp discharge, traced to alt relay, strip and clean, test ok, also found intermittent power failure to be one battery loosing amps but not
voltage at a certain charge, so replaced.
This seemed to solve that problem but as soon as it came back from the garage the central locking went crazy. closing/opening like mad. Then
locking keys in ignition a couple of times.  But always locking itself.  HAving read lots of internet help it seems that water in relay can cause this but seemed very
conincidental in that it hadnt done this at all before going in.  However after a few days it did stop doing this.  
BUT 10 days later the locking starts going mental again and low and behold the battery is draining again!
Anybody have an ideas where to go with this? with many thanks  A
