Re: 156 Battery problem URGENT!!!!!
If you have only been starting the engine without actually driving the car you have probably just run the battery down. It takes a while for the battery to fully charge up again after you start it.
1: yes probably
2: yes, there are different sizes, terminal configurations, etc..
3: yes, just a 13mm socket + long extension to get to the main locating bolt on the strap and a 10mm socket/spanner for the terminals. Also need a Philips screwdriver to remove the terminal box on the +Ve terminal.
If you want to charge your existing battery, remove it from the car first and charge it overnight. Monitor the terminal voltage every hour. It will be fully charged when the terminal voltage stops rising.
