I have a 925mjt odyssey and it doesn't like to hold a charge over night in the cold. I still have a month left on the warrenty so, i am calling the factory tomrow.
Should i have gone bigger? 1200? Do they have version that will fit better in the taurus?

Do you have excessive current drain when the car is off?

i don't know. how do i check?

When i called odyssey they said i should have purchased the 1200mjt and it will not be covered under warranty.
The tech recommended completely draining the battery and recharging with at least a 6amp charger. She said it might regain the storage ability.

You need to put an amp meter inline to check. Should have less that 50 mA.

I would second the battery charger if you have not done this. May be you just are driving enough to have the car recharge the battery.
