    Especially with the extra drain of a system. If your battery is not charged fully/ isn't charging when you shut the car off it can freeze the water then it's shot.

    Couldn't hurt.

    its bad if your battery isnt to full.....but check you alt. and read what amps it is and then divide it by .80 and that will give you a number. that is the most about of amps u can have for your system or anything u have hooked up
