Keep losing battery charge
Well, I've been noticing a trend for about the past week or two...the truck has been getting harder and harder to start, and I could tell the batteries were working to crank it up. Yesterday it barely started, with the radio flickering on and off for about 2 minutes after it was on and the lights were dim. Today it is completely dead, only clicks when turning the key. So now I'm stuck until tomorrow when I can get someone to come jump me.
Is this a common issue? Have my batteries just given out after 70,000 miles? I reckon I should upgrade to optimas. I dont think that my stereo would be doing this, its only a one little amp setup with a small 10 behind the back seat, and thats the only extra load on the electrical system beyond stock.
