Doubt it, as the coil only carges up with ignition on and a reading from the dizzie/distrabuter.

Is it an old battery? Could be the battery at fault.

1st thing i would check is, anything at all left on, i.e. under bonnet light, boot light etc, you could check this by dissconnecting the +ve termanal on the car, and putting an amp meter from the termanal to the battery +ve, if there is current going, there is sommit on!
(allow a couple of mA for clock etc)

Failing that, dissconnect the coil over night, and reconnect in the morn, and try it then!

With out being there not much i can sugjest, just carry out the elec test/dissconnect some stuff!

Could be an ECU fault??

Do you get up an ecu fault light at all?
