    My CE sat for 2 weeks. Battery condition/age unknown, came with the 94. All was well until it sat for 2 weeks. go to start it and nothing. Battery volts 9.2. Put charger on it for 3 min, and fired right up, putting out 14.4 volts from alt. Threw power pack in the trunk, and went to the car show. Made a few stops on the way home, and all was well, started each time. Took voltage at battery, and found this:
    Sat 6:15 pm=12.45 volts
    Sat 7:30 pm= 12.46
    Sat 8:00 pm=12.46
    Sun 9:00am=12.33
    Sun 1:00pm=12.38
    Mon 10:30 am=12.35
    Tues 8:00am 12.34

    Must have been something stuck to draw it down to 9 volts. I'll be at the dealer show Sat, and get a new one.

    The CE sat for a week, and the battery lost 0.17 volts.
