battery drain over longer periods of inactivity

by Donald
(Galesburg, Il)

When my 2003 C5 sits, for more that two weeks, the battery drains. I' ve read this can happen, and think there's not much wrong with the car. It's just that I sometimes don't drive it often.
What is the best kind of battery tender, or maintenance charger to buy for my car; which will not cook the battery?

Check to see if the light stays on in the glove box. Had the same prob with battery. Light in glove box was on all the time. Had to adjust the door.

Battery Tender JR is a good brand. GM is also selling a battery tender for new Corvettes that should work with your car.
