He must of drained it to be that flat. A good charged battery will hold up near 11 + volts for 12 months if left sit.
Most likely it’s sulphate and won’t be 100% capacity anymore

Car wouldn’t start (don’t know, wasn’t asked), so you keep sitting in it, wind windows (electric) up and down, dome light on, radio on. Coupla weeks, that’ll do it. 🙄

Why does this sound so familiar to my place.

Son messaged to asked me this morning if I can do a jump start on his car. I said, why, you have a battery charger, I know this because I gave it to you a few weeks ago. And you have my jumper cables too, but I am off the road, I can't walk even the short 1 km over the hill to your place, or even drive over the hill to help you if my car was working and Mums at work. I have a spare battery here but you need to come and get it somehow. At least he's worked out you Can't push start an auto.

Why can't you plug the charger in? "Oh I tried but the block of wood that's under the battery clamp to hold the loose battery in place has slipped and is blocking the positive terminal". And he's the Engineer in the family, esssh. Probably something to do with him having brain-fade from being up all night finishing final assignments for his Masters, so I do feel sorry but love to have a whinge when I can.

Atm, he’s sitting in the car with the doors open, probably has the radio on, all I have done this morning has been negated.
Why do I bother. 😖
Just wait till the battery goes flat and his radio goes off.

I have to give mine some credit, while I have been having an afternoon nap it appears that he has walked over and got the wheelbarrow and the spare battery out of the garage. The need for mobility and independence must have been stronger than I thought, well done.

Meanwhile, I’ll be at the granddaughter’s place digging drainage.

You shouldn't be digging any holes or drains. Gunna slap you if you don't start looking after yourself and the sooner that those around you realise that you're not a 20 something year old, that better! 🤬

When you can't find the wiring loom for the LED light bar. 🤬 Thought I'd get moving and put it on but can't remember where I stashed it. :poop:

get a harness from STEDI mate..They are easy to use and made very well.
Why would I spend more money on something that I already have, some where? :unsure: 🥴 It will turn up again. 🙂

Went to visit the outlaws today to have possibly the last family day with the FIL.
Poor guy has tumors all over his body and he is completely yellow. I’ve never seen such a thing. Even his eyes are yellow.
Won’t be around for much longer, but what cheeses me off the most is that his wife is refusing to take him to see a doctor, claiming they don’t know anything. He listens to her and never argues.
So this cheeses me off to see a good man suffer this way

Someone else in the family needs to step in & take him to a doctor. She could face some serious charges for not getting him medical treatment when he obviously needs it.

I’ve said all that including the part about a dog and it falls on deaf ears, no body stands up to her. The other BIL won’t help back me , the son walks away and it’s just me saying help the poor bugger.
