Have you checked for a parasitic draw or do you know how to do that? Are you 100% certain that the battery is good? Have you had the battery tested?

i have been metering my battery for the last 2 hours.It is out of the car. in 2 hours it has dropped from 12.4v to 11.7v. I think my battery is a dud.
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 6 months ago.

That is correct the battery should not drop at all. Maybe .05 out of the car in a day or 2 Get a new battery and let me know how it goes. The car should draw no more then 50 ma and usually is about 25 ma (milli amps).

I can not call until the payment and phone offer is accepted Check with the moderator as to why it will not go through

i agreed to pay $28.00. you guys billed me $5.00 then $23.00. Then tried to bill me $26.00 more. I feel i am getting ripped off.
The answer you gave me I already knew. I will pay the $28.00 as agreed. But you all did not help me at all. WILL NEVER USE YOU ALL AGAIN! FELL LIKE I WAS SCAMMED!!!!
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 6 months ago.
You have only made a deposit to your account that was the $5 than the $23 that is not even been paid it will not be paid until you click on the rating of 3 or higher. If you want a phone consultation that is the additional charge that you sent the reply through for phone consultations are extra charges. I would be willing to call the number that you listed as long as you are willing to provide at least a 3 or higher rating. Too many times I respond to people when they list their number and they never even accept the information I usually give them let alone the phone consultation what should be an additional charge. Does that clarify things? How would you like to proceed?
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 6 months ago.

As a sign of good faith I called the number that you listed and the phone just rang and rang. Rest assured this is not a scam but you need to understand how the system works in order for this to continue.

Expert:  Skyvisions replied 6 months ago.

We can continue with back and forth question and answers if you have additional information that you need regarding this battery problem. It's not necessary to do a phone consultation unless you think it's more involved than you want to type back and forth.

LIKE I STATED BEFORE I AM DONE. YOU ALL DID NOT TELL ME ANYTHING I DIDN'T ALREADY KNOW!
