yeah this car doesnt have one , iuts actually been starting up great till th ebattery crapped out on me , funny thing is after i posted that it hasent done it again .
im still rpelacing it though its a standard interstate battery thats about 2-2.5 years old , ive never had good luck with a single standard car battery in a car with a high output alt and stereo system in the car so i may switch to a dual batt setup when i replace the battery this weekend
