Talking Dead Battery

I drained the battery by mistake yesterday night. I went to see how the DVD player worked in park and got side tracked by the kids and left it playing in the garage until about 2pm today. My problem is this is my 1st Diesel. I see it has to batterys under the hood. I have no clue how to get this thing started. Since the truck is in the garage i will have to buy a charger. Whats a good charger to buy? And should i just buy a portable jump starter? Im a rookie with no clue.

Run wires from two AA Durolast batteries... They use em when the space stations batteries die. I know, I saw it on T.V.

I would call that pink rabbit with the big drum. He will get you going. He starts space ships!!!

I kinda wonder how you killed two large diesel batteries in less than 24 hours with a DVD player?? I would have bet they would last much longer.

Go to Sears and buy an automatic 12V charger. Get one with a 2 amp setting plus at least a 20 amp setting. Both the batteries in your truck are connected so just hook the charger to one and give it 20 amps for a half hour. The truck should start then but you need to drive it for a couple hours to top off the batteries. If you are not going to drive the truck just let the automatic charger run all night @20amps and you'll be fine.

Good Luck
