Car is starting up slow, it's taking like 2-3 cranks to come on but the lights dim, the indiglos dim...sounds like it just has enough juice to crank over, but it does come on. Also when you hit the alarm, the "chirp" sounds quieter, like you can tell it doesn't have the regular amount of juice it should. Think it's just the battery? or more?

prob just the battery. check the water in the cells and see if its up to normal, the water helps it charge and keep the charge. if its not that, then maybe its time for a new battery. how old is it?

cool, we just got back from Autozone and the battery is only
marking 10.7 volts. they say they need 12 volts to test it.
Jerry is gonna take it back tomorrow and have them charge it
to test it. If it comes up bad, we'll get the Optima. Thanks.
