Battery death
These days my car battery keeps dying and it's getting more and more frequent. It seems to be connected to my new car stereo. Is a second battery the answer?

Re: Battery death
Only way I see that happening, is if the stereo wiring is setup so the player is still on, when the car is turned off. A friend did his like that once, thinking he would like it. But after draining his battery so much, he rewired it the right way.........
Good luck!

Re: Battery death
I know someone who had a similar issue and it turned out a CD was stuck, causing a problem with the motor in the stereo system. I am guessing you have checked for that but just in case.....

Re: Battery death
Pretty sure there is nothing stuck in there but will check anyhow. Cheers. I'm not feeling brave enough to mess with wiring so think it's going to be a trip to the local car doctor for me. Just hope it doesn't cost more than the new system :).

Re: Battery death
As JVC said it iss possibly the way its wired up. It shouldn't cost as much as a new system. Who installed the new system?

My brother in law installed the new stereo for me. He's not qualified but pretty handy with mechanics. Perhaps electrics is a little too much for him!
