dead battery :(
I just back from my long holiday.
Went outside, jumped in my wife's car (vectra 56 plate), started first time, move car.
Wanted to jump in my car (300c 07 plate with ONLY 9500 miles done), try to open car...BUM dead. I said ok, battery in keys maybe dead. Go in house, get the spare key, same, dead.
Opened the car using the key (on passenger side as drive side doesn't have a key lock :P) . Car dead.
After 40 min a car came and tried to jumpstart my car. Nothing. Connected directly to his battery with engine running. Nothing. Left cars connected for 10 min. Tries again... NOTHING. Then he removed the battery, and did a check! BATTERY totally dead! From 800 Amps my battery was showing a 4 amp!!!
Replaced battery, car started no problem.
So both cars stayed in drive way same length of time (2 month). Vectra NO problem.
U think is normal this ?
Both cars have sat nav's, bluetooth, and 300c has dvd player too. On the both cars this extras are original (on vectra all vauxhaull original parts , on chrysler all chrysler original parts)
Something stupid in 300c:
Battery is in the boot. To open the boot u need to have current. Since battery is deal, no way to open it without connecting the car to external power source (open the engine bay and u'll see a red cable, put the the external 12v source). Smart design!!!NOT!
