PEUGEOT 306 1998
Recently had a breakdown due to a flat battery.After getting a jumpstart from his dad, the owner popped out and purchased a new battery.He confessed that it took him a while to fit as he couldn’t work out the operation of the battery connector.
When he again discovered his vehicle ( driver-start.com/alaska ) had a flat battery only a week later, he thought it best to letus deal with the problem.
Checking the circuits with a meter, we discovered the most likely cause of his flat battery was that the positive battery terminal, which should be a quick-fit unit, was not securing properly, preventing a proper flow of current. This meant that not only was insufficient power going to the starter, but the battery was not receiving a full charge.
Replacing the terminal, we checked the charge rate to make sure all was in order before handing the 306 back to the owner.
