Ok decided to do some testing before I posted.
Tuesday morning decided to drive the CZR to work, but to my surprise keyless entry would not work, I looked in no red or green flashing light. So I opened with key and tried to start and not a noise was stirring. Popped open the hood, looked at the battery and the indicator was indicating need to charge? WTF?
I remember reading two post on here about this, so I was like ok before I put my jumper thingamajiger on it, pay attention to what lights might have been left on. The regular headlight switch was OFF. When I did jump the car with doors closed waited to make sure all the lights went off, which they did, including the Map lights. Last resort I figured maybe he LED lights I installed was hosed up. So I took them all out and replaced with factory bulbs. Drove the car around for about 30 minutes, parked back up. The batt indicator still said needed to charge. Well this morning same dam thing I guess as I didn't charge the battery properly. So my question is, is the battery just fkd now? I really didn't want to go back to the dealer this weekend 90 miles away, but dang.

Yea, I plan to take it in eventually

Just got back from a lil drive after posting. Interesting, got pulled over by CHP even tho my windows were ALL the way down for my TINT already! He said he already knew from looking at my back tints and frnt windows down that they were tinted. lol Sucks living in a lil ass town. No ticket. So that means no driving until I get my FL license plates.
Now the battery indicator shows it charged and all stock bulbs are installed. Guess i'll report back tomorrow morning on success or fail.

Yea I plan on testing to isolate 1 bulb a day at a time. Hopefully i'll find out what the heck is going on.
I know even though I live (work) in Cali i'm supposed to abide by Cali road laws or so they say. Being military and a resident of Florida I'm registering in FL and waiting for my plates/registration to arrive. So when I do get pulled over again i'll show Military ID and Florida registration they will leave me b hopefully or...... I've had friends from Florida who did get the ticket for front tint, and every time they went to court they fought it by saying I ONLY WORK in California because of my JOB but WILL KEEP my RESIDENCY in FL as with my Car Registration so when I go back to FL my car will be within the laws of Florida. They always got it dropped. These were sailors that worked for me, and me having to go to court with them as their supervisor.

Well, this morning I tried starting up the car and it did, also just got home started it up and it did. What I did last night after posting was reinstall all the LED's except one on the passenger door. That one I just used the stock bulb. I'm really not going to keep on going with the troubleshooting, but just see if the battery dies tomorrow morning. I'm just going to swap a LED from the driver door to that door and put a stock bulb in the driver side.
Till the a.m.

(i don't drive the CRZ more than up n down street till i get my FL plates.)
