Dials staying upright when engine turned off


For the couple of weeks or so the petrol and engine temp dial have gone to the upright position when i have turned the engine off. When turning the engine off, the dials initially revert to the side but then after 1 or 2 seconds they revert to the upright position.

Initially i thought nothing of it, but having been away for the weekend i came back and tried start it (6 days after id previosuly started it) and the battery was dead.

My focus is a 1.6 zetec (uk version) 2002 and has done c.125,000. This is the first time i have had a problem with the battery having owned it for 2 years. I have previously had the power control module replaced (april this year) to correct an overheating problem.

Any ideas what this may be? Thanks in advance
