Re: Battery dead after 4 to 5 day non use of truck
Had a similar problem with my 97. The switch that turns the dome light on when the door is open gets dirty, and even when the door is shut it still says that it's open. Had to manually charge my battery about once a week. I accidentally stumbled upon this when I left the key in the ignition, got out and shut the door, and the warning chime stayed on. The dome light was on too. Can't believe I hadn't noticed it sooner. To fix, spray some WD-40 in the door latch. This may or may not be your problem, but I know it's a common issue with these trucks. Good luck.
