Re: Starting Problems

the problem with computer cars they need 12v min
my daughter does short trips heater on rear window demist the battery has no time to recharge so after 2-3 weeks i have to fully charge the battery or i get a call saying it will not start because the starter motor takes all the power and leaves hardly any to run the electrics for the car to start
a good bit of kit to test a battery is one of these
a tiny bit of kit to keep in the car as well
also this time of year is the time you will find out if your battery can take the cold best time of year for sellers of car batteries
