So... sorry if wrong verse, I looked for a question related one, no activity in forever, saw a few here, figured it would be ok.
What happened: Drove home, got out, got some crap out of trunk, went to bed.
Next morning: wtf moment. No battery juice. Not sure what happened, newly purchased, looked nice, very clean Cadillac.
750CCA jumper wouldn't start it, called tow to shop, car was so low couldnt get it on flatbed safely, but the pro jump starter got it revved up.
Drove it to the shop, a goodyear spot. 2 hours later get quoted about $600 for new battery ($200) new upper rad hose ($100ish) and 2 new back tires ($200ish). Other troubles exist, but thats next payday, just need it rolling for now.
Driving home on new battery, shows 13.6 volts on first crank up, 30 minutes of driving and now its 13.3v steady (good?bad?).
Let it sit for about an hour, went back out and get trunk stuff. Wth... my clicker doesnt work for the trunk or the gas lid anymore, for door locks it works still. I asked the mechanic if there was a parasite draw when testing, he said no, but he knew I was looking for one, wondering if he pulled the plug on the bad circuit/fuse/etc without telling me. Gonna call in the morning and ask about that (they worked even when the car wouldnt start). Maybe the new battery fried something that was killing the old battery? Praying it starts in the morning, boss wont like me missing another day.
Curious to know what the more seasoned think might be going on here.....
