Update on the motorcycle situation:
Now what? Stupid "smart" trickle charger won't recharge the battery because it's too dead? Confused.
- I bought the recommended, smart trickle charger.
- It flashes red when connected to aux port (manual: "Battery not connected, or battery totally dead (under 3V)")
- Also tried connecting it to battery leads... same thing.
- Tested battery leads with volt meter: 0 volts. Needle didn't even twitch. Tested on car, to test volt meter: 12 volts. Volt meter fine.
I'd remove the battery, but I'd need to remove the right side panel, and I don't have Torx tools.
Buy new battery? Motorcycle only about 1,200 miles.. alternator should be fine, says the shop.
