A few years ago, my car battery died because I had left it in accessory mode for too long. I learned not to do that anymore. Someone told me turning the key towards me is better than putting it in accessory (turning the key a notch or two away from me, but not all the way to start).
I like to sit in my car and listen to the radio sometimes. I did that tonight for no more than an hour (with the key turned towards me- nothing on but the radio) and the battery died. So is there really a difference between these key positions? Besides that in accessory the fan turns on.
Is there a better way? I like to listen to the radio but don’t want to risk killing the battery again.
For what it’s worth, the battery is 3 years old and in good condition…not weak or in need of replacement yet.
