Vehicle: 2000 Mazda Protege ES 1.8L
Today when I tried starting my car, I found the battery was completely drained. The first couple of times this has happened to me, I took the car to the autozone to have them check on the battery but they found it was still good, so I just limited my use of the car in “accessory” mode and just sorta live with it.
Today when this happened I thought it could be a parasitic battery drain or something… But when AAA tested the battery, they found no drain at all. The guy told me that one of the cells in the battery was out and that I needed to replace the battery ASAP or I will need another jump start soon. He asked $136 for a battery that comes with a 3 year warranty. The price is okay I guess? But I thought of maybe shop around and see if I can find a better deal.
So I am here trying to find a battery that fits my vehicle and is affordable, and I need some help from you guys with finding the right specs =)
