    To be honest I can't say I've come across what you are describing.

    None of the 405's I've come across have chewed through batteries and the 405 in our family from '94 to '98 certainly didn't.

    Nor have any of the other Peugeots I've had or come across.

    Buy a battery with one year warranty and you'll have a perpetual supply of batteries. Big W will replace with no questions asked.

    Get an auto electrician to check the alternator output and the charging system in general.
    My BX has had one battery in since I got it 4 years ago. A friend of mine bought a 405 about 3 years ago & still hasn't had a problem, so I'd suspect a crook alternator and/or a faulty voltage regulator or something amiss in the wiring.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    As alan has written, sounds like its being cooked, also make sure it is tied down properly. A loose battery breaks cells off and stops working well. When a cell breaks off an alternator/13.4 volt regulator will cook it eventually. After you get the alternator/regulator checked I recommend you shell out $350 and go for a OPTIMA red top gell pack battery. Mine is 7 years old and still going strong, and 100% maintenance free!!! (it's been in 2 cars).-Chris
    ... ptui!
