Battery death

When I turn my key to on, but do NOT start the car and then use an accessory even for just 10 sec., the next time I try to start the car the battery is dead…I just get a click click click. It takes a jump and the battery load tests fine. What could be the problem???

Well I dunno???

Ask here:


Step one: Remove and clean the the battery terminals with a baking soda solution and see if THAT works…

The clicking is signs of a weak battery or bad connection to it. Clean the battery connections and have the charging system checked out at a shop by doing a load test on it.

WOW…not a very helpful poster are you? Thought that was what this forum was for…and don’t bother replying
