    Default still trouble...

    re: Stuck at side off road!!! pls help

    Finally getting the chance to try and sort car out now my ankle is getting better.

    started to charge battery last night as was flat from all the 'trying to start car'. i finished charging it last night at 12.27v, i was planning to finish charging this morning to boost it up to about 12.6v, but voltage has dropped over night to 11.97v.

    does the battery need to stabilize or does this mean i have something drawing power from it whilst ignition is off over night???

    could it be a faulty battery???

    what could be drawing power other than interior lights whilst ignition is off???

    many thanks

    Sounds like the battery has a cell down and its not holding charge.

    You got to let the battery rest before checking after charging. However as it did not seem like it was holding the charge before. If you can get hold of a desulphination charger, you may be able to reserect the battery.

    Rapid charging causes sulphination of the plates.

    To properly test a battery, you will to have it checked professionally, they use a load tester. A dud battery can still give out 12v but cannot provide the current.
