View Full Version : Dead Battery?

Before you lock this, I read through a bunch of threads trying to find a solution, but i think because i was storing my car it is a unique problem.
So to start I store my car in the winter. When i do I bring the battery inside. I put the battery in the car and drove it for the first time again a week ago. drove it about 50km, and it ran beautifully. I left the battery in the car during the week and went to start it the next weekend, and the battery is dead. I left nothing on in the car. The temp ranged from -15C to about 0C. So anyway, i boosted the car, and it ran fine again. I drove it about 250km, and then parked it. I'm hoping when i go home next weekend it wont be dead again. The battery is an energizer pg 700n. and i've owned it for about 4 years.
Any ideas on why the battery went dead?

Did you charge up the battery to full; before putting it back into the car ?

no, but i never have to be honest. everytime i have put it back in from keeping it inside, it has fired right up.

It should be charged at least a couple times over the winter. It could be shot, I'll be on my third battery within the week.
