I bought a new one about 2 years ago, cut it in the middle and installed it. By now the gap between both pieces is a good one inch already. The heat also shrinks the pad mounted underneath the hood.

There is a lot of added voltage monitoring coding in the new version. In my car some are presently coded "active" and others "not active". What is the benefit of one over the other?

Battery: 11.1V looks low. I pulled up an old fault report of mine which listed 12.4V.
I have no idea what that would point to, however.
