Dead battery charging problem
Hey guys, It's been a while. I hope you all had a Happy Holiday Season. I am posting on here because I have ran into a little battery trouble. I think I might have left my XM radio receiver on in my truck for a few days but I am not sure. I checked my truck yesterday morning and it was completely dead, no lights, locks or sounds what so ever. After about 45 minutes of fighting with my door locks I finally got them open manually since the electronic locks don't work. I popped the hood and hooked the battery charger up to the battery. When I did something near the battery started making a clicking sound and my interior lights on the dash and over-head started blinking to the rhythm of the clicking sound. When I turned the key over (as if I was starting the truck) everything stops. Is this my anti-theft going off while I am trying to charge the battery or something else? What is it and what can I do about it? I am sure my battery is toast since it died and it's been below 10 degress the last couple of weeks. So I plan on getting a new one. I just need to try to get my truck running so that I can get out and buy a new one.
Any suggestions would help. I would appreciate it!
