Battery problem.

Postby RudyPerme » Thu Nov 21, 2013 12:00 am



Good evening forum, I need help with a battery that I ran down unknowingly. I left the key in Park instead of lock. The next day I put my battery tender Jr. on it and the red light is still on after a full day. Is this normal? I checked fluid and it is full to the line.

A Battery Tender Jr. is a battery maintainer, not a battery charger. It will eventually fully charge a battery that has been drained, but it can take a couple of days, as its maximum output (if I recall) is about half an amp.
