Can complete discharge of brand new batteries kill em? Did I just blow $160 bucks by leaving the key on in my recently revived diesel? The truck (f250 powerstroke Ford) got two Interstate batts. I found it this morning without even enough electrons to move anything on the gauges or light the warning lights...Deader than a doornail! I'm now charging them, or trying. Put a digital meter on each, before I hooked it 0.02v....with my battery charger on "manual- 10 amp" my meter is reading 12.00v... I am an electrical dunce, BTW...
