I have a 1997 car, that I bought used. II owned the car for 5 years. I don't
know how long the 2nd
car battery (sears) is in place. I recently went on a trip, and my batter died
while car was sitting
in garage for 3 weeks. I charged battery, and it died again, 2 months later.
However, I really don't
use car that much. Maybe 30-60 minutes of driving per week.
How do I know, that the battery is good or bad, since when charged, it lasted
about 2 months of very
I have a trickle charger, but am wondering if the battery is bad, and is time to
be replaced. I do
not know how old this battery is.
If the car battery is bad, rather than keep a trickle charger on the battery, I
was hoping that
driving 30-60 minutes a week, is long enough to keep the battery charged.
Can you please provide some input.
