Hmmm, yes that is certainly consistent with my current (no pun) 
situation; today I am replacing the car battery, which "died" during 
the past week. I'd been having no obvious problems with the battery 
(never had to jump start) when the AB light began to came on again 
last month, but now I realize there was/is a problem that has been 
causing the battery to be drawn down. Last week I noticed that the CC 
(channel 11) readings showed an unusually large drop in voltage 
whenever the CC fan was operating. So perhaps a bad CC fan or 
alternator problem. I'm hoping the new battery will get me through 
the track event next week (Watkins Glen),  and then I'll start to dig 
into the electrical issue(s).
