Dodge 1500 Dead battery
Something is draining the battery and I'm not sure what it could be. Here are the things I've tried/replaced:
1. When I bought the truck it didn't have a radio so I put in an factory aftermarket radio. All the connectors worked as expected and I didn't have to splice any wires.
2. I had the battery checked out and it appears fine with a solid charge.
3. The ignition key comes out when the truck is running. My mechanic said that when I turn off the truck, it was still stuck in the accessory position just enough to drain the battery. Replaced the ignition switch...same problem.
I could go a week with no issues or it could happen overnight, it's totally unpredictable.
I haven't been able to determine what else could be draining it. Troubleshooting tips to narrow it down are appreciated.
main battery cable could have acid in the wires itself and need replacing. guess you've already checked the alternator
Haven't checked the alternator. Is that something the local batteries plus can do or do I need to take it to my mechanic?
