Engine will not turn, but electronics and lighting still come on inside the car when key turned in ignition. Got a jump and it started right away. Is this a battery problem or an ignition issue? (Battery is approx. 5 years old - Optima Red 34/78)
Also, looking through batteries online. Looking to replace that Red 34/78 but also saw that the Yellow Top recharges faster. I work 5 minutes from home and am running 2 speakers and a deck off of the battery (other speakers and subs off amps). Thinking that the short period of time I drive my car is not allowing my battery the correct amount of time to properly recharge.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
