Re: Dead Battery AGAIN!!!
My Spider is 10 years old now and is on her 2nd battery. I found recently that when I left the car a few days the battery was flat and needed jumping, then it was fine for the next day or so. It started to get worse so that eventually it would start when jumping it and then after a 5 mile drive if you turned the ignition off and back on again it would need jumping again.
I suspect mine was done when I got my hood working again and operated it a few times with the ignition off which must have drained the battery down too low for it to recover (thats when the problem started anyway). New battery sorted the problem out. £70 from halfrauds for one with a 6 year gaurantee.
