Funny battery issue - 2.4 JTD
I've had 2 Sportwagons ( 2.0 TS & 2.4 JTD ), and they both suffered from occasional battery drain, where I'd come out in the morning and the battery could barely turn the engine over. I checked if any interior lights where left on etc. ( which they weren't ). It seemed to be that this would happen if I left the face on to the cd/radio. SO two questions are:
1) Why would this happen?
2) And when I try to start, the engine would turn over a few times - then I'd charge the battery. When I replaced the battery, and with everything turned off and key out - when I connected the battery the engine would continue to try to turn over. Why would it do this when the key is not even in the ignition? This seems peculiar to my current JTD.
