have an '06 Stang bought new as a toy (1800 miles in 3 1/2
years).......they all have a basic anti-theft system and I ordered the
optional alarm system with motion & tilt sensors, etc.
if I leave it in my garage with the systems turned on, the battery is
flat in less than a week......with the systems left off, it will last
same story: dealer says that's normal.
so I installed a trickle-charger....a Battery Tender Jr which I guess
puts out about an amp. I plug it in if the car hasn't been driven in 3
or 4 days.....and it takes 2 days to charge-up.
pisser is: when the battery is completely discharged, not only do you
lose the time & radio sets, but the transmission loses is memory
(relearns after you drive it a while) and you have to manually reprogram
the power windows to drop when you open the doors.
wonder what people = like New Yorkers = do where it's normal to leave
your car in a parking garage for long periods.
