What do you mean by "flat"? Will the engine turn over? I take it the DT is diesel. If it won't start, it may be time to change the fuel filters. -- JCV

Someone needs to perform an amperage draw test on the car. To do this they will need a Fluke 77 or higher multimeter. Just take loose the - battery terminal and put the two wires of the meter between them. The reading should be 300 to 400 ma. If its higher there is a drain on the system somewhere.
