    I had an old VW Beetle like that. Had to slam the door shut. Of course, the older VW beetles were legendary for be able to float when driven into water (at least for awhile).

    [QUOTE=Seejay;235663]If that is the case, then it makes no sense, or other electronics that draw considerable power are in play here. Incandescent cabin lights left on in a car with a conventional fllooded cell battery can go for days and still start the car. The lighting in our cars are LED and the AGM battery is a deeper cycle battery than flooded cell.

    It may not make sense to you however this is a forum where we give suggestions and experiences that we all share to help each other understand the dynamics of our vehicles. It may not apply to all but already we had some responses with similar experiences and a simple solution may be the key to help others avoid a dead battery. If you have another solution please post; this is what happened to me and others may had the same issue and I'm glad I was able to shed some light. Help the forum by giving ideas and solutions first.

    I am trying to help here. I was not implying that you did not make sense, just that the electrical characteristics of the car do not allow for that as an explanation in full, but it may be partially true. I am fairly convinced that amongst a background of bad batteries (some people's problems are fixed once their battery is replaced), there is another problem. If you park your car in a quiet place, you can hear a motor or servo run for about 2-3 seconds when you turn the engine off and open the door quickly afterwards. You have to be in a quiet place (I can only hear it in my garage). It's my pet theory that sometimes under unknown circumstances, perhaps when the doors are not closed properly, this motor or servo runs continuously, killing the battery. Hyundai dealers are apparently still struggling with this issue, since it is now a topic in the G80 forum.
