Battery died overnight
Got into my car yesterday and everything was dead. No juice to even power the door locks or truck lock. What was strange was that the overhead cabin lights were still on, but I couldn't turn them off.
Are they supposed to warn of a dying battery, or do I have a glitch in the system that turns on those lights and makes it so that I can't manually turn them off? I tried pushing the round plastic buttons and also the main slider switch but no dice.

Re: Battery died overnight
Mine just died 100 miles from home this weekend. Jump started the car and drove home without turning it off. When I got home it started a few tines although it clicked and cranked slowly. No warning of that earlier though. Wait til you price the replacement! At the local auto stores it runs $180! It's just a 12 volt side
post battery. I thought someone found a more reasonably priced replacement but I couldn't find the post.
