I did a search so fuck off...

Anyway I'm a dumbass and left the hatch cracked on my GTS while I was gone for a few weeks. Come back to a dead battery.

Question: Can I just hook up a trickle charger to the posts in the engine bay and not worry or do I have to pull the rear wheel and access the damn thing?

Thank you in advance for your quality responses. :thumb:

I would rec. a new battery. I had the same problem...I hardly drive my car and one day I took it out and the battery died. Went home and charged it but it did not last long and I was stuck on the road. Die Hards are awesome.

I have a 04 and went away for a week and when I came back the car wouldn't start. I didn't leave anything on. What drains the battery when it sits. Clock? What else? I put the battery tender on for the night and it started right up in the AM. Just wondering if i should get a shutoff for the battery or just leave the tender on when it sits in the garage between starts.

Not sure about the SRT's, but the Gen 2's come from the factory with a less powerful battery than the mopar replacement battery. I learned the hard way...but, as usual with Chuck Tator, I got the replacement under warranty!

How this bit of info found it's way into this thread eludes me at this moment.
