Default Voltage leak?

Hi peoples, seem to be having a problem the last couple of days, after leaving the car turned off for a few hours there's hardly enough juice to turn the motor over.
Disconnected the battery over night and it's holding its charge but hook it back up and it starts to discharge straight away.
Any ideas anyone?

i have a problem like this, i think mine is something to do with the rear door, sometimes it thinks it hasn't closed properly even tho it has. drains the battery over 1-2 days.

Disconnect a battery terminal, install an ammeter to reconnect the circuit. You should see some current being drawn, if you do you'll know how much and can hopefully identify this by pulling fuses out one by one until he current disappears. This should allow you to identify or at least narrow down the root case of the problem.
