Customer Question

I left my car lights on overnight, and now my car won't start. I turned them, do I have a little bit, before it's starts up again?

I'd recommend recharging your battery to get your vehicle started. If the battery sits with no draw on it, it is possible for it to slightly recharge but probably not enough to start it. You can remove the battery and take it to your local parts store, they should test it and recharge it for free.
