Question about Ford Taurus
Hello, I am not a doctor but I don't believe either one of you are nuts. I think you are dealing with a family member you really care about, and you should be commended for that. Anyone can forget to turn off the headlights, but it is a little unusual to forget when it's dark. As far as the car, it's probably fine, the alternator is designed to maintain the charge of your battery. It's not designed to charge a dead battery, although people do it all the time after just such a situation as you describe. The extra strain could cause your alternator to fail prematurely. Also, allowing the battery to become discharged can over time reduce the life of the battery. I would say the worst case due to this incident would be replacement of the alternator and battery. I hope I have helped you and I wish you good luck with your uncle.
