It is just a reminder that eventually your battery will rundown if allowed to stay in ACC. I have run my radio for over 90 minutes on ACC (at the local drive-in theater) with no battery issues. But as the battery ages this will not always be the case.

I listened to a lunch of sports radio.......then I needed a jump.

I asked the tow truck guy what gives. Lights were on. Radio worked. Only thing was when I hit the push button to start I had a light show of flickering. Thought I had an electrical issue.

What he explained was that the push buttons need x amount of juice to turnover. So while the car can play the radio and turn on the lights (opposite when battery is really dead) his reply was that it needs just a liiiiiitle more juice to turnover.

I bought a battery pack from Amazon........
