I have a 2007 Wagonr which has run 42000 kms, the car was taken out for a drive and then parked in the parking. when i tried to start the car the starter motor spins, but then goes dead. it feels like the battery doesn't have enough juice to start the battery. But the central locking and ICE and the headlamps are working fine and the battery has a voltage of 12.3 volts. The battery is 4.5 years old and is Exide make. Experts Please help.
I need some information on this specific technical issue. Seek your help and comments. Does the DDIS (Digital Drive Information System) / DDAS (Digital Drive Assist System) has it's own in-built, rechargeable, button battery/batteries ? This data is needed by me as my Xylo E8's DDAS is behaving funny now, for the last one week or so. The car's batter is perfect. No issues with that. No starting trouble and no other electrical issues. The Date/Time on the DDAS is getting reset whenever the engine is switched off. It is asking me to key in the date/time every time I start the engine. All the other parameters are OK. The fuel indicator, the mileage-to-empty, gear indicator, inside and outside temperature etc., are shown perfectly. Becuase these parameters are calculated on-the-fly whereas the date/time are `carried over' from the memory. So, I feel that this DDAS must have a rechargeable, button type of battery (one or more) built-in. What's your say on this ? Has any ACI'an faced similar problem/glitch ? And, how it was resolved ? I did not talk to any M&M Dealer or Service Personnel, so far. Anyway, I have to take my Xylo for it's annual servicing this month-end (max by mid-Jan'13). By then, I should have sufficient info/data on this. (oops ! there's a typo error in the title. Please read " it'w " as " it's ". Sorry for that)
I've been riding my Mahindra Rodeo for arround 2 year now! Almost 80% of the time I've to kick-start it! There is no problem with starter or rectifier, It's all about battery! When my vehicle was in warrenty, I've replaced my Exide battery 2 times & each time they took arround 2 months to replace it! & even after that if the vehicle is on stand for 3-4 days, battery gives up & I'd to send it to the service center, those guys used to clean my ride, recharge it & give it back to me with 300-400 Rs. Bill & are unable to reason this problem! One day, I got frustrated & took it to an expert local mechanic he examined the bike properly & told me that only problem is due to battery! There was a similar problem with my old Kinatic (I still own it & love it!) & after fixing it with Amaron Pro-rider alpha battery, it's working absolutely fine! So I went to Amaron's showroom & asked for Rodeo's battery, but then they told me that they don't make 7 Amp, 12V batteries! Exide, Sonic SF, Amco & Tata Green (I'm not sure about it!) Manufactures such batteries! I'm very upsate with exide & Sonic is also their brand, but local mechanics told me that they are way better than AMCO & Tata Green! So Now I have to choose between Exide & Sonic SF! which one is better & are there any other better options? Please help me with this issue!
Do any of the numerous boarders of ACI shop for car batteries online , if you have done that before and have had a pleasant experience with the online batteries store , do share a link here . Online stores like that of Exide sell their batteries at MRP , i am looking for a bargain in Delhi,
