If you fitted a new battery which drained overnight, that points towards a discharge somewhere in the electrical system. The battery charge is finding its way to earth somewhere.

One of the usual causes of battery discharge is a faulty alternator - the diodes in the rectifier pack (usually attached on the end of the alternator) burn out, allowing the current to run to earth.

Disconnect the wiring from the rear of the alternator and charge your battery and let it stand overnight, with the alternator wires disconnected.

If it starts ok in the morning, that's pointing towards a burnt out rectifier pack.

Other causes of battery drain - well - they can be caused by anything in the electrical system including the instrument cluster.

There will be sensors on the throttle body. Check the wiring on the sensors. If you're getting an error code that's suggesting you have a sensor problem.

If the engine cranks but doesn't fire - it's a sensor at fault, usually. Though it could also be due to a broken or corroded wire to one of the sensors/ECU.

If the engine doesn't crank that points towards an earthing problem. Check the battery cables for security and corrosion - particularly check the black earth cable where it attaches to the engine block.

If you know about timing belt driven water pumps.. you know that you have to reset your timing on the engine. If you think you can. Tear it down.. replace the pump. And go onto the internet and find that engine and ask for timing marks.. reset them.. and all will be fine.. hope this helps.

You have to access the lens from under the hood. There will be adjustment screws that also hold the lens in place. Remove those and it snaps out. They are in there firm so be ready for a little fight.
