jeez did you ever hear of punctuation ok ill give it to you the same way soyoull see what a pain this is ok you have to find out if the battery isreally being drained like an ignition off draw somewhere or if it is notbeing properly charged this could be an alternator regulator or wiringproblem or maybe the starter motor drags when it gets hot or evenoveradvacned ignition spark timing and yes it could even be a simple badbattery like a shorted cell there are lots of possibilities anyone who knowsanything about electricity can troubleshoot it easily yes its much easierand faster to type this way but it sure is harder to read right rick
