mjhpadi Posted December 20, 2016 Report Share Posted December 20, 2016 As some of you know my car is at the dealer currently for state inspection. Also, an ugly problem has reared it's head. Seems that since having the gauges installed, my battery has been going dead after 3-4 days of non-driving. And it has gotten worst in the cold weather...was dead yesterday after only 2 days of sitting. I get the feeling that maybe the guy that installed my gauges either has done something to add to the draw of the battery while the car is off or he has the gauges hooked to a constant "hot" so they are drawing power when the car is off. When it first happened back in July, I assumed my original battery had just given up the ghost, after all it was going on 6 1/2 years old. Got a new Motorcraft Max battery but still have had it go dead like 4 or 5 times since. Not a happy camper, hopefully the dealer can figure what is drawing the excess power with the car off. Will be sure to keep everyone updated as I find out what is up. ReneteX 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
