'12 Tbird Dead Battery
Got a weird issue with my TBird wondered if anybody could offer some suggestions to check. Was riding home Sunday in about 35 degree weather and suddenly the ABS light comes on, and the speedo and tach shut off. Bike dies about a mile or two later and won't start. Has no charge in the battery.
Send wife to Wal*Mart to get a new battery and it fires back up. At this point I'm thinking alternator, and it's going to die again in 20 or 30 minutes. I make it the 90 minutes home with no problems. I notice as I get home the horn doesn't work either, not sure if its related. Checked fuses and leads to horn, everything looks good.
Bike is fairly new only had it 4 months, and about 2500 miles.
