  1. So I just purchased a 2000 318i knowing that it had an issue with the battery or the alternator. Had the battery checked and charged, and it is indeed brand new and holds a charge. However I went to start the car 4 days after charging and it is flat, i'm not sure if its the alternator or if their is something drawing from the battery when the car is off. Whenever i start the car, the ac is always on even when i turn it off, is that factory? - I have found that the 'hedgehog' final stage resistor for the ac is a common problem that draws from the battery when the car is off. Should i take it to an auto-electrician or order the part oniline and pray? I'm a broke uni student with an addiction to building cars if that helps.
