So i try and start my car getting ready for work and click click click, battery's dead... it seems my system remote wasnt turned off. After jumpstarting, it takes a charge and i am able to start it again.. after work i come out, dead again, this time it wont hold a charge.. so its stuck at work, dead battery.. should i go to the dealer on this one? or is it my damn fault for leaving the remote switch on? (yea i have a switch, couldnt find the pin on the stock headunit). whatta ya guys think?

<Pointing at Quad's sig> I would bet money those are to blame...
thats why i wont get an aftermarket many problems. Anyways, if the dealer sees your aftermarket stereo equipment then they will tell you to take a you just voided the entire electrical system warranty on the car. -t
Yup... more than likely they will tell you to take a hike. Unless you want to rip that all out except for the head unit then go in. Otherwise, i'd say just get a new battery and be more careful!
Thanks yall!
Yeah, what guys said - what is dealer going to fix there? I'm sure they won't want to touch your system, and if they will agree to diagnose and find a current drain by your amp or something you will be out $90 for diag fee

Find a remote wire on your HU...

Edit: And please rename the topic to "I mucked up my battery myself" j/k (tired of people blaming everything on the car when it's pretty much their fault).

You mean like my defective right rear rim?
Yes, it's your fault. You deep cycled the battery. Buy a new optima. Yellow top. As far as voiding the warranty...just yell "Magnus Moss Act" as loud as you can. They won't have any trouble understanding that. Next time I pull my deck I'll let you know the accessory wire color. I posted an alarm schematic on here a while ago that has an acc. wire on it as well, just do a search.
