THe magic battery lives on
Did they test the alternator? If the battery is good then that means you have a bad alternator. Either that or you could have a short somewhere that is draining the battery. Either way, it's going to go dead on you again so put some jumper cables in your car.

You drive a Chrysler don't you?

last time there was an issue with a battery it was because the computer wasn't shutting off in our dodge caravan. So for like a week we'd have to jump start it to go somewhere, but once it was started, it took like 8 hours for the battery to die again.

Yep. 2001 Dodge Intrepid. I can't believe Chrysler still uses that design in their newer model year cars like the Sebring. Then I've heard the Chargers have it in the trunk. It seems strange to me but I guess there's a good reason behind it somewhere.

An alternator test would be a good idea. Head up to advance or auto zone and have one done to see what's going on.

yeah. and then they ask a girl out on supposedly snowy night and they purposely make sure the card gets stuck in the snow and that they touch bodies to keep each other warm. I think that's how my divorced mom and dad met if I remember correctly.
