I have a short commute to work and have other vechiles to drive. I remember a post post of someone installing an on board battery maintainer in the engine bay. Are there non plug in (capicator) versions? reason I ask is: I have a battery tender jr I occasionally throw on my other vechiles when they’ve been sitting for a few days. Battery tender usually has my other vechiles topped off in 1 - 3 hrs. The k2xx, I throw battery tender on after sitting for a day or a short trip and it takes 4 - 6 hrs to top off. K2xx Truck has been charging via alternator fine and starts no prob. Ive read a few dead battery posts about batteries in these trucks only lasting 3 years, etc Besides putting a solar charger on the dash, any other options y’all are using? Or am I overthinking this ;-)
Service park assist / service traction control / service stabilitrack/ battery power low. All kicked on this morning. Drove it yesterday, start up sounded a bit weak, drove it for like 20 mins. Turn the key over this morning, I get a single click and all the reads out from the above. It's a 2012 Silverado lt with 56k miles on it. It's only been getting started every three days for the last 2 weeks since I've been on vacation. So I'm not sure if the battery died because it didn't get the altanator going enough to generate a charge or what... Really confused. I'm really hoping the damn thing just did all wanna crap out on me at once. Hoping for you help, thanks.
