04 reg diesel jeep crd manual gear box. Have fitted new battery

This answer was rated:

04 reg diesel jeep crd manual gear box. Have fitted new battery (recommended battery from jeep after having 2 cheaper ones) after 2 days battery goes flat and the car will not start. Had the car checked at main dealer and they could find no problem. They said there could be an intermittent drain but were unable to find one. I have had the battery previously checked and again no fault could be found.
any ideas?

This is not your battery for sure after trying 3 different ones .

But a known fact with some of the radios that wake up after a time and drain the battery ,what i suggest you do is pull the radio fuse and leave over night and see if you still have the same problem .
Had a few same cases as yours and was the battery waking up.
Repair was to replace the radio .

Check this then get back to me if you are still having problems .

If you are not happy with this answer and still need further assistance then please don't rate just get back to me with the reply button .and I will help you or suggest another expert .
