Default How long can you keep the flashers running before the battery dies?

Hey, in the s197, how long can you keep the flashers on before the battery dies?

3 min 18 seconds IF you still have a dysfunctional Motorcraft battery...

And we need to know this why?

If I had to guess, I'd say at least 24-36 hours. Probably somewhere around 1 1/2 to 2 times longer than how long before the battery would die if you just turned your parking lights on.

I had mine on for about an hour straight once when I was pulled over on the side of the road. The car still started up without hesitation after that.

My battery died after less than 2 hours with the crappy Motorcraft battery.
The battery had more than 3 years on it, though.
I replaced it with a red top Optima and couldn't be happier.

Same at UCF..... I've already been towed once. And with the mustang being lowered and a CDC Aggressive front lip, it didn't turn out too well.
