    Dead Battery

    Without a "Battery Maintainer" is there anyway to open the luggage compartment to get to the battery? Is there a hidden manual lever somewhere. The parts dept. is closed already....

    Re: Dead Battery

    Oops, just saw the other post. You would think that the battery would last longer than two weeks without driving the car. I thought after a certain number of days the car goes into sleep mode to lessen the drain on the battery?

    Re: Dead Battery

    Yup, 7 days.

    Regards

    Re: Dead Battery

    I always use the maintainer if not driving it for more than two days.

    My now-gone 997S was messed up and must have had a larger-than-normal current drain but dealership couldn't find anything wrong with it.

    Here's the ***OFFICIAL*** word amp draw: GOOD LUCK trying to match it!!!

    Re: Dead Battery

    Thanks MMD.

    Makes sense, shorter driven vehicles will yield less storage time....Dealer did say that warranty on battery is voided for cars driven less than 3,000mi per year, unless you have the "Official Porsche Battery Maintainer" then they will cover the claim. Oh well.....

    Re: Dead Battery

    My pleasure FSU,

    BTW, NEVER leave your keys in the ignition: even in the "zero" position (just stuck straight in). Apparently even _that_ will discharge battery.
