Hello, how old is the battery, will it pass a load test? When you turn the key to on, nothing lights up at all or there are some accessories inside the vehicle that are making weird noises from low system voltage?

Mercury Mechanic: HDGENE, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

Yes it passes a load test or yes nothing lights up? If its 3 years old, its close to the end of its lifetime.
