Hello everyone, I've got two wonderful questions!
1)I've been having some problems with my car for the past month or so, resulting in my car not starting and me having to get a jump start.
At first, the reason was because I would play the music while washing the car, which I learned took energy directly from the battery, instead of being powered by the distributer and thus gave me a dead battery when I tried to start it.
So I stopped doing that, and the car was fine.
A few weeks later, I get out of school, park my car, sleep and such, and try the next morning to turn my car on, and it doesnt even have enough energy to do anything at all. No lights, no engine trying to start up...nothing.
Yet, the battery tester people at my local Schucks auto say my battery is in top form and fully charged (Its an Interstate...something if you needed to know, has a green race car on it)
Before that morning I had been driving with no music at all, no heated seats, and only the fog lights...I don't see how it could be drained, and I did not leave anything on when I left the car....
Is this something bigger than needing a new battery? Or are those battery testers bogus?
Btw, my car always starts on the first try when jump starting.
2) My windshield washers don't squirt out anything, but the reservoir is not empty itself at all....does anyone know common problems with the washers? =\
Thanx in advance for your help =D.
