January 2012: Bye-Bye Original Battery, and Oil Pressure Gauge
Just over 7 years after getting my 2005 Ford GT the original battery died. I know of other Ford GT owners with original batteries that lasted longer, and the sad fact is I wasn’t particularly kind to this car’s battery. My Ford GT often sat for weeks at a time without being started, and months at a time without being put on a battery charger. When I realized the battery was dead and wouldn’t hold a charge, I wasn’t at all surprised.
