I bought the wife a 98 Dodge Ram 1500 a couple of weeks ago. In that time,
she has drained the battery twice. Basically twice in 2 weeks.
Here is how she explains it to me.
When you turn off the truck, if you turn it back to far, you can still take
the key out, but somehow the power to 'something' is still on and drains the
First time she did it; ok, her Dad was there while she was visiting and they
jumped it with one of his V-8 rigs.
Second time, it was 04:00 AM in the morning and I had to go outside in the
rain and jump her with our little 4 cylinder Toyota. At first it didn't
want to jump the big Dodge.
I don't want up again at 04:00 in the morning because she does this again.
Is there a way to prevent this or is she doing something wrong?
