Has anyone else had an issue with their car not starting after sitting idle for 4-5 days? I replaced the battery and still have this issue.
Yes, when i got my '19 GT350 a friend who had a 2017 told me he had problems with his Shelby and replaced the battery.Has anyone else had an issue with their car not starting after sitting idle for 4-5 days? I replaced the battery and still have this issue.
Do you have a ammeter, or a voltmeter that is able to read amps? Have you checked to see what the amount of current draw is when the car is off? Not sure about the Shelby, but on most modern cars the car also has to be locked so that all of the computers will go to sleep. Since you would need the hood open, not sure how that would impact that.it is stock with no additions.
Yes, if you don't lock it, it's always in a type of stand-by mode drawing down power from the battery.I was told, when I bought my ‘19, that if you don’t lock it with remote, it basically continues to actively search for the remote. So, the battery is getting drained slowly but surely. I equate it to leaving the dome light on; doesn’t take long to drain battery below starting voltage.
I drive my car about once every two weeks, locking it after with remote, and have had no battery issues (knock on wood).
but I will blame you if my car does not start the next time I go to drive it..
