Proton Satria Neo 2009

If my Proton Satria Neo is not used for 5 or 6 days the battery goes completely flat. Proton said the Captor alarm system drains the battery everyday. Proton suggested disconnecting the battery when the car is not in use for more than 2 days or having the Captor disconnected (connection is in the dashboard). Is this info all true? (1.6 auto)


Well Dan, I own a 2010 Satria Neo Sport, and I have had the same problem as you - battery going flat after being unused for 6 days. 1.6 manual, the remedy for mine was straight forward, it turned out the boot lid had come open, even though I was sure I had closed it properly. I believe the boot lock may be faulty so when I have some spare time, I’ll be taking the car to my Proton dealer for a check of the boot lock mechanism. I hope this helps, if this isn’t your problem. To be honest, it seems to me that Proton are fobbing you off with any kind of excuse. I don’t pretend to know about some of mechanical workings of Proton cars, but you shouldn’t have to disconnect your battery if the Captor Alarm is at fault through either makers fault or product fault then it seems to me Proton should replace, the alarm or find some way to fix the problem Ian Corley from Hertfordshire
