Default Battery

Hi,

I've just got a 2006 2.7 coupe. It drove fine on test drive and also on way home (100 miles)

Last couple of days I've had some faults showing on dash. car was fine one day then the next I got ABS, park distance control and seatbelt/airbag warning lights all came on.

I've been looking at the battery and it looks very small for this size of engine and with the equipment the car has fitted.

It's an Accustart Standard battery.
Can anyone tell me if this is the correct battery to use or if it isn't then what is the correct one?

Cheers

As well as a date of manufacture.

You are probably right in suspecting the battery, but it may not be the size/capacity - it may be the condition.

With the engine off, you should see at least 12.6V at the terminals, and with the engine running 14.2V.

If the first reading is low, try charging it with a mains charger - it may be low through lack of use, perhaps somewhat sulphated. A good charger e.g. this will sort that out.

If the second reading is low, that would point to a bad alternator.

I have a 2.0 hdi, where as other cars I owned go through batteries every 5 years the 407 seems to reqire one every 2/3 and throws odd errors when it's on the way out, the car starts fine one day then completely dead the next ,always makes you think there must be a wire off the startercos on previous starts there is no sign off engine struggling to turn over.

Cheers mate. Would it be small enough to cause the errors I'm getting?

yeah they also give you the option for a 95ah 096, are there dangers putting one of them in.

I would rather the car had adequate power from battery rather than being borderline

bigger would not cause any problems other than being able to physically fit in
