If your car still has the Panasonic battery might be worth changing as they are not the best.

They all run low on charge this time of year. Doesn't take much to finish them off esp if you left your lights on!

Might be best to try not run it down again. Does it get many long runs during the day w/o all the lights etc on?

Fairly long run but lot of stop start, may just get a new one, there is nothing worse than being stuck with the bonnet up, I can feel the smug stares, would be happy to pay £150 to avoid that!
