Flat Battery :(


Recommended Posts

Morning all! :)

I'm hoping this is going to be an easy one for a Sunday morning!

I'll give you some background info

Got home from work yesterday decided clean the inside of the car. Had a CD on, moved the leccy seats about. Must of been 30/40 minutes tops. Tried to start her again afterwards and all I got was a chime and lots of ticking! Got my dad over with the jump leads and she started instantly. My dad didn't even have to start his engine. Went for a decent drive and thought that was that.

NO! :angry: Went to go to work this morning to be met with the same chime and ticking!

Is my Battery a goner or is it something else? I've not had any problems like this until now.

The only other thing that might be of interest is that there was a hissing/electrical type noise coming from ( i think) the negative terminal on the Battery.

Any feedback would be appreciated

Groovy...just what I need at the end of the month before pay day! :angry: Kinda knew it was coming tho.

Dunno if it makes any difference or not but the wee eye thing on the Battery itself is still showing a full blue circle? Does that not mean it's suppose to be healthy?

Thanks for the reply btw

Not sure about the 'Blue eye thing' i'm afraid.

I have seen a similar thing that shows green when good and red when its k******d.

To see if its charging literally takes seconds so that wont cost much, if anything.

The Battery is another story, depending on what type you get.

Good luck
