Auto lighting in Cmax. Batttery goes flat when I leave the tail gate open for the dog!

Asked by May 26, 2017 at 02:57 AM about the 2013 Ford C-Max

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If I'm at a competition with my dog I have to leave her in the car for short
periods.  She has adequate shading and cage so I can safely leave the tail
gate on my Cmax up for her to get fresh air.  Everyone at the competitions
does this but for some reason this drains my battery and I don't know why!
The battery is not faulty.  I think it's something to do with auto lights, is there a
switch or something that I haven't noticed or do you think there may be a
fault somewhere? Hope someone can help as I am stumped  Thanks
Rachael ps The Reg is 2011 but I can't select that from the drop down !
