Issue with Battery - AMP drain

Post by Eds16 » Mon Dec 10, 2018 4:10 pm

Recently broke down and good old RAC saved the day. I have a Qashqai digi tec 1.6 (66 plate)

1) - when starting the car - KEY ID INCORRECT came up on the dashboard.
2) - changed the batteries on key. - did not fix the issue

RAC came out and did a battery test - the gentleman advised that there was an AMP draining the battery. But upon placing the connector to the battery to jump start car - it sparked! He did suggest that it could be the auto light feature on the steering wheel that could be the issue. He also advised that he had a similar problem with another Qashqai that day but 2018 plate.
I have booked a diagnostic test - at the moment the car is running okay. :D

Has anyone experienced this, if so please let me know what the issue is? And should it happen because of the auto lights?

Many thanks, everyone.
