Default Re: Charging a dead battery

A battery that is completely dead and takes no charge and is a few years old, is probably not worth messing with.
Considering the ignition was left on, I would suggest reviewing condition of the points. Points are designed to work best by opening and closing in operating conditions. When a point car ignition is left ON and the points are in the closed position, there is a chance of overheating them and causing some bad contact conditions to be created. At the minimum, inspect and run a point file on them and with new battery check for good spark.
