Re: car battery keeps dying...
My tib is doing the same thing.
It would die after anything more than one day of not driving it. and its winter, so more or less i just want the alarm to work since I'm not driving it.
If I jump started it, my voltage gauge would read about 14V so I figured it was just the battery.
I jumped it off my truck, drove to the car parts store, got a brand new optima red top and all seemed fine, showed about 14V on my gauge, stoped at a red light and it dropped to below 12V .. wtf ... so I figured its just going through some charing cycle or something, drove around for a while to let it charge and thought nothing more of it.
Got home, parked it, and checked 2 days later ... dead again. So I pulled out the fuse from my amp power wire (incase it wasn't fully turning off), and jumped it again. let it charge up and let it sit again.
for the next week about, I'd hit the buttom on the remote to make sure the alarm was still on, and all seemed well. and then all of a sudden it's dead again after a week.
Possible voltage regulator issue? Since its an internally regulated alt, I'm thinking of just upgrading to the Santa Fe alt since from what I read its a bolt on alt with no modification needed, and it puts out a little more juice.
I can has RHD Sig?
