3yr old Kirkland battery, but I have dashcam in park mode. Could that be ageing the battery sooner?craftsman wrote: ↑Feb 12th, 2018 1:41 pmBattery performance will depend on the temperature of the battery. In theory, CCA is supposed to compensate for that but realistically, I've found that testing CCA in cold weather will drop the CCA performance in regards to warmer weather (usually about 10 to 15%). The other issue is if you recently charged or ran the car within the last few hours. If you did, the battery has a surface charge of some degree which will need to be dissipated before a reliable test can be done.

When cranking, the RPM seemed to choke a bit, starts low and crawl back up, or need recrank once in a while. Also light dims when cranking. But it cranks, never got stranded unless I overdraw.
