leaving radio on when turning off the engine drains the battery
Has anyone heard or know of this? What I notice is that if I leave my radio on when I turn off the engine, the next day, the battery is drained and I can't start my car. It sputters and tries to turn over but cannot start. Again, this morning I went out to start my car and it won't start, then I remembered I left the radio on when I turned off my car last night. Finally, it got a kick start and the engine started and my radio began playing. I turned off my radio, turned off the engine, started the car and it started right up.
My sister had same problem in her 2005 Hyundai Tuscon.
