Is there a way to make it so I can play music for longer than like 10 minutes, without my battery light coming on? I like to play music while i am detailing or washing my car. To answer the question, no I am not playing it crazy loud either, while the car is off. Thanks.

sounds like you need a new battery, should last more than 10 min.

without the car running, the battery will be fully drained in about 30 minutes. Are you turning the car on to activate the radio then turning the key off and letting it play? That would last 10 minutes. Anything else should last at around 30 before battery problems arise. whatever happened to boomboxes anyway? Laughing

I just re turn the key for another 10 min, and I do that sometimes like 5 times, no battery problems. That way, only the radio is eating up power

I don't know if that's true when you are running a few aftermarket amplifiers. I haven't wanted to find out, so I just leave the car on if I want music...

Well I just purchased a brand new battery so I don't think that is the issue. The Turn On turn off method does work with, seemingly no issues, but when you have the doors open, that doesn't work. I am running a couple amplifiers, a 550w Fosgate Monoblock, and a like 350 watt Alpine 4 channel. I'd love to run the car the whole time so I don't have to worry about it, but at this point I am wondering whats more expensive a new Battery or the gas, lol. Maybe I'll get one of them solar battery chargers and hook the grid up on the dash lol.

Touché, SO maybe Ill listen to it for like 15 min, then turn the car on for a while. How long does it take to recharge the battery?

Jumping a dead battery fries the BCM??? Crap maybe that's why my power locks won't auto lock... My car went absolutely nuts one day, all the electronic stuff wouldn't turn off after the key was out and the headlights were flashing on and off like the alarm was on... and that ran the battery dead.

There have been a few instances of members frying their BCMs after a jump start. It's not a super common problem, but it happens enough that if I ever have a dead battery, I'll just buy a new one.

[quote="barnettimpala"My car went absolutely nuts one day, all the electronic stuff wouldn't turn off after the key was out[/quote]

That was my major symptom of a dead BCM.

I fried a BCM when I jump started the car once. From then on, I either would put a trickle charge on the battery, use a booster pack, or just go swap it under the battery warranty.

I have also had the radio in the car going for well over an hour with the engine off (key turned to acc) with no problems... Heck, when I was single, I used to "park" with the radio on for a couple hours at a time Wink Wasn't in the Impala though... That was my 91 Regal.

That happens sometimes if there's a bad connection at the battery, happened to me when the original battery's positive post rotted off from the battery. Rolling Eyes

The Impala's stock amp is likely the reason our cars cant stay more than 30 minutes to 1 hour with the radio playing before the battery dies.

I say get a boombox of sorts... it's not fun having to wait for your battery to charge back up up on a slow charger.

I can run mine for hours at a time. Ive ran mine for at least an hr while we played volleyball....

My setup:

Optima Red Top under the hood
Kinetics 1400 in the trunk.

All my audio in including my screen is wired to run off the battery in the trunk. I keep the music pretty loud too and havent had any issues with it. Starts right up without any hesitation too. My battery light comes on as well but i dont pay much attention to it. Sometimes i think its a glitch of some sort since ive never had issues with the battery.
