I washed the car this morning and then checked the lights, including front fogs. Didn't turn the engine on because I only had the lights on for 10 mins max. Engine won't fire up and the battery window shows as ok. New battery time??

Not necessarily. You've probably just made it drop below the required voltage. Got a charger?

I got one of them CTEK chargers. Shows the battery condition during charge. I use mine weekly up to the full charge/recondition stage.

Ha, started first time with the fella's charger. The voltage was fine but the amps had dropped. Oops, I won't be doing that with the lights again. Is the ctek charger compact?

Yup, highly recommend an intelligent battery charger like the Ctek.

Too many people throw away batteries that could be rejuvenated. Especially after a quick drain.
