1 Answer

something drained the battery dead while you weren't lookin'...get a charger on there or buy a brand new battery if yours is older than five (note date on the knock-off labels on the top of the battery) wait too long and you'll start cooking the alternator....just find the source of the drain...glovebox light or maplight or cosmitic makeup mirror left on....sumptin~
