Default There seems to be a trend of 12v issues

Is it just a coincidence that so many are having 12v issues lately? My 12v has been acting strange as well. Regarding mine:

If I let the car sit for a night it will start right up. However, if I start the car turn it off, then attempt to restart it, it struggles and I notice the honk when locking the door sounds very weak.

Seeing many of the 12v posts lately makes me wonder why that could be....

I'm not surprised about all 12v posts lately,
perfect timing for a Karma with original battery installed.

On average, a car battery lasts from 5 to 7 years. A fully charged battery should read 12.6 volts or more (with the engine off).

Just replace the battery when in doubt lost wakeup signal is a true nightmare.

My 12v battery is brand new. I have to keep it on a trickle charger or it dies within 2 days. The Optima charger is absolutely amazing. It will actually repair and charge completely dead batteries.

I replaced my 12v Battery last year, but I don’t drive it very often, and a few months after being replaced, I got a low-battery warning when I left the car sitting in the garage for two weeks while I was on a trip. After that, I always keep the battery tender connected when I am not using the car. Pat told me that the lifespan of these batteries is more like 3-4 years, and serious consequences ensue if it dies, up to and including, bricking the car.
