Dead Battery!!!

okay so here we go, 2 mornings in a row car didnt start, wont even make ticking sound. i know battery is dead, but after boosting the battery i test the batery with the tester and it shows baterry is good and check the alternator it shows its charging good. So at this point i am still not sure where the problem is, i know 90% that its the battery.

So i am wondering:
- if i can put optima yellow in 99 ex sedan
- what kinda modification i will have to do
- and where can i get one for reasonable price
- or if someone is selling fairly new one. ***

pls let me know

NOTE: *** PM only for this one pls.

they do make optimas to fit our vehicles now, forget which one if yellow or red..
and even then, people have fit the larger abatteries in the stock location, ie rick, jeff, and others...

best price imo is costco, sams club...

there are also cheaper compatition to optima, motormaster and others also make cell batteries for far cheaper...

I would check for any voltage draw when (you think) everything is off inside and outside the car. Even something minute will deplete your battery overnight.

There's 2 ways to test the battery. With and Without load.

A lot of batteries will show normal voltage, but when you draw from them, it'll die down to like 5Vs..
