    No question is dumb. It’s how you learn.
    I have a Deltran Battery Tender lead/connector permanently wired in my Lincoln.
    Battery Tender part number is 081-0069-6. Check Amazon.

    I have the plug end sticking out the grill, so it is easy to connect the Battery Tender.
    It’s a good bet you will be needing a new battery if you are letting the battery sit discharged for anything more than a short period of time.

    Thank you for your response, yes, I checked the battery with my load tester and it failed, it also will not charge past 12.2 volts so it's trash. I put in a new battery last night and will be putting in the tender, I just wanted to make sure there was not a problem with having a tender hooked up and hurting any computer/electrics in these finicky things.
