The situation would be: key-off to kill the engine, lights-out, then key-on, lights-on. I'll look into the delay circuits.

I'm just curious -- my batt is ancient (6-years). Would it benefit me to just replace it and perhaps save the alternator before Winter hits? It hasn't failed to start yet -- and I've drained it down to 10.9V when parked for storm spotting, radios-on, blower running -- and it started right up (charged to 13V and shut down, repeat) -- I know, off-topic a bit
