I have a new '03 prostar 209. I have only 34 hrs on it. I am getting the battery alarm when the engine is off and the radio is on. I have charged the battery and even charged it yesterday prior to going out to the lake. My charger indicates that it is fully charged. I have plans to buy a new battery for next sping. Will I still have the same problem? :confused:

Sounds like the battery is not holding a complete charge. If you take the battery to an automotive store, then they can test the battery for you to see if it is functioning properly.

I would lean towards what ERK said, but first thing I would do before this, is check all of your connections. Make sure you have no loose wires. Battery, radio, amps, gauges, all of them. Especially if it is only 2 years old.

What's a battery alarm? Is it the check engine light and buzz?
