Bad Costco (Kirkland) battery?
I bought a car battery from Costco (based on the review on RFD) back in October last year for my 1999 Honda Civic.
I went out this morning toI the car, was able to unlock the car no problem, but as soon as I turned the key, nothing...no ignition light/sound. My radio lights flicker for a brief second...but after that, nothing. So much so, the battery didnt have enough juice to lock the doors. I'm assuming this is not normal considering I drove the car 2 days ago. Agreed that it's -34 with wind chill this morning, but for a battery to just die like that, it's not normal.
The only thing that was done to the car 2 weeks ago was a tune up + timing belt change. so all spark plugs, distributor cap/rotor, water pump, etc were changed...any chance something wasnt earthed causing the battery to drain?
Now, to go through my receipts to find the costco receipt that shows i purchased it just 4 months ago.
