So I live in CNY. My truck sat from January until recently. I jump started it weekly but the battery still went dead. So I took battery out and hooked up a Schumacher 6/2 amp dual rate battery charger model SE-82-6. I left it on for almost 24 hours, the charge was up to about 6% when I left for work this morning, when I got home it was back to zero. Battery and charger were pretty warm but not hot to touch. So in good hopes I still went and hooked it up and it Atwater gave me a dead battery clicking sound when tried to start the truck. So my question is should I take it back out and hook it back up to the charger and how long can I actually leave the battery on the charger?
Also I noticed that my brake fluid was low and pedal went very far down so I filled up reservoir and pedal still dropped far and fluid is empty again but I don't see any wetness anywhere. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
