Battery draining

If my central locking control module is faulty, would this have a drain on my battery causing it to flatten overnight?

I have had my alternator checked and it is OK, I removed the central locking module and now the battery is not completely dead but there is not enough to start the car, could it be an earth somewhere?

did you get the battery tested as well? i would assume so if your still beating your head against a wall. by an earth im assuming you mean a ground/short. that would definately cause the battery drain. if the central locking module removal helped but didnt stop the problem you should check all the wires that come off and go to it. you will likely find your problem there.

whats up with the red font?
