Customer Question

When I turn the ignition off the radio continues to play and I have to turn it off manually. Something is running my battery down. I replaced the battery a few weeks ago and I got into the truck Thursday and the battery was dead.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.
