    Re: Disconnect the batetry for external charging

    A couple of questions, what is the age of the battery, and is this a sealed battery where you cannot check the level of electrolite (battery acid)? If the battery is nearing the end of it's life (ie: a 60 month battery is nearing 5 years old), I'd probably replace it what with winter coming on. And if the acid level is low, you could possibly add some to get a few more months of life out of it. Personally, I'd leave the terminals right where they are and place the battery on a charger that senses when the battery is fully charged.

    Just my thoughts...

    Unless there is a known reason that the battery is low that can be totally corrected by charging---REPLACE IT.

    none really, you might just lose your memory settings and your dic will just reset


    issue with mine was it randomly drains the batt, cadillac tested charger and batt twice and passed both times
    I just charged batt in car every few days and was good to go
    with the colder climate coming in, had to boost the car a few times and last one got the rotten egg smell (1 sign batt is going looks it)
    bought a new one after that
