If it only clicks, the battery is weak. If it dies over night. You have an electrical draw. For directions to check, go to our homepage under the DIY sections.

NEVER SNATCH THE BATTERY WIRES OFF WHILE IT'S RUNNING!!!!....THIS WORKED WITH THE CARS FROM THE '70s ON BACK....NOW YOU HAVE "SENSITIVE" COMPUTERS!
