I had something in my car called AC Anywhere plugged into my cigarette lighter. Some might not know what it is, but you plug it into the cig. lighter and it attaches to a big transformer so you can plug regular plugs in there (computer plug, cell phone charger plug, etc). I had left the switch 'on' but nothing was plugged in, but I guess it still sucked my battery dry sitting in the parking lot all week. I went to start and classic signs of dead battery. Had a friend jump me but it took a while for my starter to turn enough to start my car (his little PT cruiser trying to jump my Chevelle didn't work too well). I only let the car run for about 3-4 minutes before I had to go back to my dorm. This morning I came back and it cranked for a second and the solenoid then just clicked a lot, and then dead again. About how long does it normally take my engine running with alternator putting out voltage to charge the battery back up enough so I could start it again next time? Have to go back home tomorrow for a wedding and plan to put to hook the battery up to a charger then. By the way, that AC anywhere thing is unplugged now.
Thanks in advance
