Re: Information(south Africa)battery

You do turn the lights off when you park...?

Batteries should last over 4 years, so dunno what them Taurus are up to.

Make sure your charging system is okay though - maybe your alternator is cooking them. Voltage across the terminals at 3000 rpm should be about 13.6 volts.

Otherwise, if my life depended on it, I'd have a Magneti Marelli - seem to knock on the door of 9 or 10 years each, all the ones I've had.
