Vehicle was running fine same day prior to storm and never had any indication of battery or power issues. Then we had a thunder storm and there was a significant strike close by over head with no actual ground contact and when I went out after the storm my jeep wouldn't start. There was enough power for radio and dash lights but it wouldn't turn over. It would take a boost though, but not keep the charge. Can an overhead lightning burst cause damage to a car battery? I was thinking it was some kind of fluke EMP burst.
