THE BATTERY WAS REPLACED A FEW DAYS AFTER INITAL PURCHASE. THIS INCIDENT HAPPENED THIS PAST WEEKEND. THE DEALER IS SAYING THAT IS THE MODULE. MY POINT IS IT IS THE WRONG BATTERY FOR THE CAR AND ALSO THE SECOND ONE THEY PUT IN. HOWEVER, THE CAR WAS FINE UNTIL THEY CLEANED THE CABLES AND CHARGED IT. I ALSO HAVE THE CAR SERVICED AT THE DEALER. I HAD NO WAY OF KNOWING THAT THE WRONG BATTERY WAS IN THE CAR. SHOULDN'T ONE OF THEM BE RESPONSIBLE. THE PARTS SO FAR IS AROUND 450-500 DOLLARS
Was the incorrect batter installed once again, or was this just when the car was originally purchased?
THE INCORRECT BATTERY WAS INSTALLED TWICE. FIRST TIME TOO LARGE BENT THE HOOD. SECOND ONE IS THE ONE THAT HAS CAUSED THIS PROBLEM. THE CAR IS AT THE DEALER AND THEY ARE THE ONES WHO TOLD ME THAT THE BATTERY IS NOT FITTING RIGHT AND IT IS THE WRONG ONE.
THANKS...the battery was not changed on saturday, they tested it told me I needed one. I told them i only had it 12-14 months. they supposely cleaned the corrossion and tighten a loose cable. Could that have caused the gas gauge, clock to stopped working. the car was operating fine with the exception of a little hesitation in starting up at times.
Yes it does. except the dealer is not the one I purchased the battery from it was auto=zone. I took it to the dealer after the computer failer. I am thinking that what ever was done to clean, charge or tighten the cables caused the problem it that possible?
I understand what you are saying about the voltage and crossing up the cables. They did not remove the battery to my knowledge.
