  • Parasitic drain

    I recently had to replace the main battery as it had dropped a cell after 13 months. It had been OK up until that point. Now I have installed a larger capacity battery but it won't start after sitting overnight. I did all the usual and disconnected all the add on's and even the alternator supply to the fuse block and that's not it. Still wouldn't start this morning. I metered the current at 60mA sitting which isn't much. I'm wondering have I copped another dud battery? It was on 12.4V sitting but drops to 8V cranking. As soon as I introduce the auxiliary battery it fires first pop. This is a right royal pain in the bum as it's the daily and the boss is getting pee'd off having to hit the jump button all the time...

    Battery should be 12.6V or higher when sitting.
    length of warranty usually determines the quality of battery and 12 months is poor.
