not enough charge back. for ur small alternator maybe require engine run longer and off air cond blower, off most electric item to charge.

i also happen to leave interior light on a few times. stupid haha.

You can have your battery recharged at the shop (usually RM5).

Your battery has went thru a deep discharge at low current drawn (only internal light), so there is still a high chance you can charge it back to normal, if the overall battery health is still go.

Give it a try .. nothing to lose.

Faulty battery. Interior light consume only 5W/hr. Your battery should get sufficient charge in few minutes drive.

Anyway if this happen again it indicate a failing alternator.
