Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 1500
I own a Dodge 06 Hemi, and when I let my car sit unused for 7-10 days, the battery drains down to where I can no longer start my ignition. The dealership has ran multiple tests such as
Test Battery: 12.8 volts
Load test: okay
Test charging system: 14.6 volts
Check for draws on battery: .126 amp draw when modules power down
They said no problem was found, and didn't know the reason why the battery seems to always go dead. Any help in this area or if anyone else experienced something similar would be greatly appreciated.
Well it could be possible that you have a cell that is going bad.. This would cause battery to fade with little draw from onboard accessories (ie: clock, etc...) Why not spend a couple dollars and install battery isolation switch you can flip when vehicle is expected to sit for a duration... I know this doesnt solve the drain problem you have but could be a solution for not having to jumpstart it when you need to ude it..Good Luck
