I had a problem starting my car one day, jumped it and it wouldn't hold the
jump. So, I went and purchased a new one with the correct CCA (not that it
matters in AZ). In any event, it started up and I drove it around a little.
The next day I went out and the battery was dead. Deader than a doornail.
All I got was grinding and clicking.
I did a little research on the forums and newsgroups and went out and
purchased an EEC relay and a trickle charger. It took almost 2 days to
charge up the battery, but it finally charged. I went to start it and with
just 10 seconds of cranking, the battery went dead again. I put it back on
the charger and within 10 minutes it was charged. Tried again, same thing.
Within 10 seconds (no exaggeration), it was reading dead again.
Is the battery, or is it something on the car. I can not imagine any
battery not being able to support a crank for longer than that. YEOW.
Thanks and take care, Sharon
