    dead battery after a short weekend away

    After 4 day so not moving the car, I returned to notice the battery completely dead. The Cadillac service rep. came to the rescue to perform a diagnostic test to no avail and simply ended up giving me a new battery. I was also informed by this rep. that this was about the 4th time this week that something like that happened.
    Another tid bit of information that I was giving was that the driver side window may end up having a problem because of the wiring harness from the main frame to the door being worn after some time. I checked and my automatic/express up option for the driver side window does not work anymore. Is this a coincidence?
    I have had my 2003 Sports Luxury CTS for 16 months now.

    A new battery isn't the answer. You have to isolate the problem. I had a minor short in my 98 Vette that I couldn't find, and neither could the dealer. Long story short, an Optima went flat as fast as the Delco before I found the short.

    I had the problem with the power door locks on my loaded Grand Marquis. The wires from the main that go into the door for the windows, p. mirror, locks, etc. can crack inside from the door opening and closing, etc. The think I found is that Ford left no slack in the play of those wires you can see with the door open! Therefore I think they flexed too much, along with cold winters, and SNAP. My dad and I cut into the insulation, found the wire, and spliced in a connector with a lot more slack. It was not fun. The dealer told me they have a problem with the new Town Cars as well.
