I will say, though, that you need to charge the battery or get a jump start. with the vehicle in AUX mode, the power was being drained.

Expert:  Todd M replied 6 months ago.

The battery is dead.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
How long does it take to charge?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
But the lights come on and everything. Is it still dead? Can aaa jump the car?
Expert:  Todd M replied 6 months ago.

Depends on the strength of the vehicle battery charger that is used.

Expert:  Todd M replied 6 months ago.

You can definitely jump start the car.

Expert:  Todd M replied 6 months ago.

Especially if the radio and/or lights were on. The battery would drain faster.
