Do you know anything about a "known" problem with 2005 model Opel Astras whereby the motor in the console mounted CD player stays on when the ignition is off and eventually drains the battery? I know two family members suffering the same problem. Do you know if there is anything that can be done to fix it?
The only option Opel gave is to replace the whole console, but the problem will eventually happen again. Both cars are out of warranty so Opel dealers don't want to know and have only offered to replace the console at huge cost. Any ideas lads?
Love the site by the way.

This is something that we have heard of before, but what we were told is that it was the radio at fault, as it switched itself on randomly and therefore drained the battery that way.
Let us contact Opel on your behalf and see if they have a solution and we will come back to you on it.Answered by: Complete Car Adviser
