The battery shouldnâ??t have discharged completely after a few months. Take it 
back to where it was bought & let them charge& test it. Replacement should be 
in warranty.

 friend of mine left her vehicle at her house for several months, while she
was away on the west coast. A new battery had been installed in this
vehicle about month before she left. She asked a family member to start
the car once a weak to keep the battery charged. As you can imagine this
did not get done. I went by the other day, and the battery is totally dead,
no lights, or gauges come one when the ignition switch is turned on. I did
not have a voltmeter with me when I was there.

I would hate to have to buy yet another new battery for this car. 

What is the list's collective wisdom relative to rescuing this battery/
Should I put a battery tender on it/ Should I just hook up  charger, and
hope? ...
