Mysterious experence !!

Who done it??

In 2007 I purchased the “used” 2006 KIA Sportage. It already had 39,000 miles (well used). Eleven years later, the odometer reads 82,131. This year (2018), I’ve driven 1,064 miles.

Last night, a neighbor knocked on my door to tell me the lights were on–on the KIA. Had I been “out”  and forgot to turn off the lights? No, I haven’t driven the car for twenty days! The headlights were not “on”  but the tail lights were bright red in the dark night!! I rushed for the car keys and opened the door. “Yes,”  light’s switch was “on”  but this has never happened in eleven years!! “Yes,”  the battery is dead!!

Did a squirrel get under the hood and chew on some wires? Every day, I see squirrels in the carport. (Especially since I hung feeders with black-oil sunflower seeds, and corn on the twister.” As I type this, a squirrel is trying to reach the ear of corn on the “twister.” Oh so funny to watch the activity!!)

    Boy, that’s odd. Squirrels couldn’t move the switch, but surely the lights on all that time since you last used it would have been noticed sooner. I hope the battery will take a charge. Some of the auto parts stores and places that sell batteries, like Walmart, will put them on a heavy duty charger for you and test them for free.
