those 3 on all weekend will draw enough to almost kill a good battery?
<font color="green"> Hell no, I've left cars for weeks with just that stuff on and the battery was fine. </font color>
NO /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gifmight have left something on ??? or /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif the battery needs some help
that's all that was on, battery is less than a year old and not a cheap one.
It doesnt matter how much you paid for the battery you can find bad ones on the shelf at the store. I would get it replaced under warranty or at least get it tested.
Dont ignore your charging system. You could very well have a good battery, but a bad alternator.
I do know that a incorrectly wired choke will kill a battery in a weekend! I should have check it for Ign. on only! Duhope!
/forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Man where were you about a year a go!!! That was exactly what was killing my battery. Some how when I wired up my electric choke on my new Edelbrock I wired it always hot instead of ignition hot. It killed that battery every night!!! /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif It's amazing how much juice that little choke pulls!!!

Better do some sleuthing to find out what the problem is...bad alternator, bad battery, a lot of draw from other components/faulty wiring, etc.
