I have a pretty nice 1988 burgundy Allante. Not a show car but a quite nice driver. We only drive it after the roads have been rained clean of salt and do enjoy the car. Maybe about 3000 miles a year for the past 6 years. There have been several issues mainly electrical but I am lucky to have an actual mechanic that likes the car. When it goes to him he keeps it and drives it like it is his own until the problem has been found and repaired. Since he likes to drive it he does not charge me near what he should. So. in the fall I disconnected the battery cable under the hood, gave it a good cleaning and waxing, patted it on the head and covered it up. This morning I uncovered it and called my insurance guy. I hooked up the battery and it was dead, dead, dead. I then put it on my trusty charger and the needle just jumped from 0 to 10 in rapid order. It has not done that before but I figured it would settle down and go to work. After about an hour I went back to it and I had lights, front and rear, blinking on and off, also control panel lights blinking and the door key chime going off. I unhooked the charger and came here. How much trouble am I in? I will get with my mechanic when he returns from his vacation next Monday but I would like to solve this myself.
