im not sure i havent tried that

O.k.,if you can check that and let me know if you hear it or feel it clicking with the key first turned on or when first cranked over this will help.This will most likely take an assistant to help do this here.

i cant check for that right now because my battery is being charged .Could that be a reason why my battery went dead

Usually this wont cause the battery to die unless it has a short in it then it is possible.If you can check this when your battery is charged and let me know this will help.I have to head out for about 2 and a half hours but will be back after.
