My wives car battery kept going dead and had to be recharged often because it wasn't driven enough to keep the battery charged. A friend told me about the Solar Panel and I bought one and haven had a problem since. It really works great not only for the car battery but also for Trucks, boats, camping gear and RVs that have a 12V Battery. It is available at Harbor Freight Stores. Copy this site
A solar powered electric fence energizer usually contains a battery for energy storage. The solar panel collects the energy from the sun and charges the battery. Lead acid batteries, which are used in solar fence chargers, typically last around 3 years, or around 1,000 days of charging.

TAKE BATTERY TO AUTO PARTS STORE FOR A LOAD TEST PROCEDURE, MAKE SURE THE CASE IT IS PUT IN HAS THE DOOR CLOSED FOR YOUR SAFETY, BATTERIES SOMETIMES DO "EXPLODE" AND ACID FLYING IS NOT GOOD. IF BATTERY IS NOT GOOD, I WILL SUGGEST YOUR BUY AN AMPHOROUS SOLAR POWERED BATTERY CHARGING PANEL, THEY COST BOUT 30 BUCKS AND WILL KEEP YOUR BATTERY CHARGED UP OVER LONG PERIODS OF TIME.
I would say that the battery is low from sitting. Some alarm systems have a low voltage indicator that sets off the alarm. The flashing lights and clicking (alarm module) under the dash are indicative of just such a problem. Have the battery charged and consider disconnecting it or you can purchase a solar charger that plugs into the cigarette lighter to keep the battery charged (usually under $30 @ Lowes). However if you remove the battery is may you to lose radio codes etc... I believe the solar charger is the best option at this point. Have someone give it a boost with jumper cables or a charger to stop the flashing and clicking in the interim. Thanks for using Fixya and please post a comment and rate my assistance.
That is not necessarily correct-if the car sits all the time, parasitic drain on the battery will eventually kill even a new battery. Telling someone that a car has to be driven 1000 miles a month to maintain the battery is not a solution-if you don't drive alot, get a trickle charger ($good one is $30, one that works can be found for $10) that you can plug in and keep hooked up to the battery to keep it fresh. Another way is to get a solar panel charger (1 1/2 watt, about $20 at Harbor Freight) and put the panel on the dashboard, and the other end into the cigarette lighter socket in the dashboard. A third solution is to buy a deep cycle battery (Optima) that can be fully drained hundreds of times yet will recover and work properly-these are expensive ($175), but out perform conventional batteries that die if fully discharged a few times. You could also install a remote starter and periodically start the car, letting it run for 15 minutes-about $200
im in OZ m8 & have heard no bad reports on them so far!
as for parts it should be easy to get them nowadays! as winnies dealers are in Qld
id suggest investing in an extra THERMO FAN for the radiator & or a triple core radiator will have you safe n sound!
duel battery,s is a good idea with a solar charger it plugs into your cigarett lighter
[ i just got one]
Im currently looking to tour myself!
anything else i can help you with just give me a hoy m8
a good battery will hold a charge through the winter if disconected from the vehicle adn left fully charged.
you may want to look into a battery monitoring charger, it is a trickle charger that is designed for long term use, it monitors battery volts and turns on when needed.
also put carpet squares or cardboard under the tires if you are parking on concreet. this will help prevent dry rot and flat spots
absolutely. solar chargers are out there, most electronic shops will have them. get at least a 7 watt one. or a new deep cycle battery will easily handle being in storage for a week. so long as doors are all shut tight.
Yes, but the efficiency of solar cells is terrible. Its one thing to use free sunlught to charge the cells, its another to have to pay the electric company to do it. If you can access the batteries in the solar rig easily and they are in the correct voltage range, I think you would be better off getting a battery tender (trickle charger). Just let the van sit outside until the batteries are fully charged, then connect the battery tender to keep it fully charged.
