The boss had a similar problem with her CRV. She phoned me one day in February saying it wouldn't start and she couldn't get home from work - she decided it was cause she had left the lights on.
She has a 20 mile round trip to work, mainly in traffic.
Well, she was driving with the heated seat on at full and the aircon at Hi (because she's one of these people who doesn't believe that it works properly if you just set it to a temp).
Even though she was doing a 20 mile journey, she was draining the battery more than charging it. Once the car was jump started I told her to switch the heated seat off, or at least only use it for a couple of minutes, and to turn the aircon to around 20C, keeping it on full auto.
I still don't think she believes me, but she is a little more careful about the high-drain electrics on the car.
My comments are just my words - it's your mind that finds the meaning you want to find.
