Customer Question

we have a bmw 530d touring 2006 and have occasional and seemingly random issues with the battery draining. garages have failed to solve the issue. only once has this led to the car not starting but it has led to warnings several times (picture of car jacked up) and the need to reset the clock. we believe the issue may relate to the multi cd player which has been disabled (but not removed) in an attempt to solve the problem. despite being disabled it still seems to make noises as if it is trying to reset itself.
any ideas?
