Re: 2004 - 2008 ford f 150 battery drain problems
My 02 has never seen a garage and starts in below 0 temps.
Every vehichle with any age on it needs to have battery and terminal maintaince as they age.
Not doing this going into cold weather is setting ones self up for problems.
There is nothing different about Ford from any other make.
They all use the same type batteries, start solenoids and starter design.
If the charge circuit is not doing the job, don't blame a battery on any make.
Battery life is on average about 4 years with many going much longer.
Replacement batteries can go 6 months, a year or 5 years. You can never know ahead of time.
