Hey! I'm in Cape Coral :hi:zentenn said:I live in Fort Myers Fl. and I"ve had several batteries go bad. They seem to last around 3 years max and they go without warning. When I lived in Pa. it seemed to be that the battery would go bad gradually, not all at once like it is here. The last time one went, I had the car turned off for about 30 seconds!
The manual says if you don't put enough highway miles on the car, the battery won't have enough time to charge itself.
About a year for me. I think that caused the problem, at least in part, although not driving it much (<2000/year) didn't help.magbarn said:A mere 24 months for me. Then again the IHKA bug that completely discharged my battery 3 times probably didn't help too much.
