Default 2005 Precedent quick discharge

I just got an 05 precedent in really good shape, batteries appear to be in good shape also. However, after "fully" charged it will give me about 45 min. of full power, GPSd at 19 - 20 mph constantly. It starts dying quite rapidly after about 45 min. and it will give me approximately 30 min. more at about 50% of the power. The car has front and rear lights. Could the batteries be going bad, what else could be wrong?

welcome, 1st thing is to check the batteries.....you could have a set going bad or just one.....or even a bad cable......if they are the original batteries they are now over 6 years old and depending on how they were maintained yes its possible but check 1st.........test voltage and load test each one....................

Thank you for the advice. will post test results as soon as I have a chance to test the batteries.

Do you think it would have anything to do with the OBC?
