  1. Had some issues recently that warranted a heap of cranking so i had to put the battery on charge in the garage. Charged it on the 'low' setting (3-ish amps i think), charger gave the green light, battery is sprightly and everything seemed great. Fast forward a couple of days and I was greeted with some intense rotten eggs through my heater blower in the morning... Checked the battery and it isn't venting anything visibly (i.e. any contents spilling out), still works great etc. The alternator voltage regulator is working fine as I checked this as part of my recent issues. I can only
  2. Hi, I bought my first car, a VW Polo 9n (2009) in early 2020 - so very much a newbie to cars. I fitted a new radio in July of that year (incorrectly at first, which led to a flat battery from radio being left on, but later sorted it so it turned off when I switched off ignition). It may not be linked but, a month or two later I started experiencing problems with ABS warning light turning on and power steering failing. This was very intermittent and only seemed to happen when driving in traffic, with phone plugged in and radio on etc. Garage immediately said it was the alternator, b
  3. I have a 2002 1.2 polo which has been standing outside for around a month. If I move the car I will lose my parking space so during lockdown, which makes the situation worse as most are not in work, I have been reluctant to move it. The battery is a decent one only a few years old (can't remember the make). I managed to start it fine about 2 weeks ago and ran it for about a minute but since the very cold weather it has drained and unable to start at all. I am concerned also how long I can leave it standing without being driven, but firstly I want to get it started to let it run long enough to
  4. 2016 Polo 1.4tdi 6r I've recently had to charge the original battery on my car. The battery is a Varta AGM with these details on it 7P0915105 68ah 380a DIN 680a EV/SAEG5 . The battery below is I'm told the replacement one from Tanya. Just like someone who has more experience than me to confirm that this is the correct one before I shell out for it Thank you

    1.4tdi 6r

    Hi I own a 2016 1.4tdi Polo 6r which due to the lockdown has a flat battery. I think the battery is coming to the end of its life and needs replacing soon. Can I fit a new battery myself or is it a VW job ? I've heard that doing it myself can cause major problems with the various electrical components including the CD player and radio. Any advice would be gratefully received. Thanks in anticipation Chris
  6. Just replaced battery and out of curiosity checked idle current (car locked, all off) - stabilized at 200mA. Is that expected - or something is draining battery? (The old one lasted about a week when parked) M.
  7. Hi all! Hoping for a bit of advice, my breadvan keeps cutting out 5minutes or so into a drive, doesn't start again. The first time it happened I was just setting off from some lights and the engine just died, battery light was solid on the dash after it cut out and it wouldnt start again. I sat around for 2hrs waiting for recovery and I was getting no spark. After getting towed home, I came back to the car 4hrs later and it started first time and sounded absolutely horrible! Sounded like it was underwater. I didnt drive it, didnt start it more than 3 times and got the same underwater noise.
  8. Wondering if anyone could help on this. I’ve recently bought a 9N3 GTI, it’s had a new battery fitted within the last month or so and it keeps going flat. I’ve taken the negative wire off and done a drain test, it’s draining at 4-4.5amp, so the battery goes flat in no time. Haven’t had the time to start pulling out fuses, but wondered if anyone else has had any similar issues? Any help would be appreciated. All lights are off, boot light is disconnected etc.
