I had a dead accessory battery this evening, ad the T/M error as well. Charging the battery for 1/2 hour got rid of the error. Now I have to worry about the damned accessory battery's health. Ironically, I have it hardwired for a maintainer, but haven't used it a lot this Winter. I think the 12 volt throw blanket, plus the seat heater and wheel heater, all running together, caused the little battery to run a deficit. I told myself that the long L-1 charges, plus my 35 minute commute, should keep the battery charged. Well, probably in Summer...
Has anyone investigated how much battery is needed to "jump" these cars? I have several 12 volt UPS batteries that are used, and read 12.89 volts charged. They were originally 10AH. Would one of these suffice with a little lead with alligator clips, or do I need to keep carrying a larger battery, and cables?

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.
