    Possible battery/electrical issue

    Ok so I have done the repair but to no avail as when I unlocked the car the battery charger went to 25% again and as I did it direct to the battery I think thats the end of the battery. Interestingly though still no issue starting the car. Shows that the IBS is a great bit of kit as I would never of known until we had a cold day and I went out to start the car. So batteries then. Im going to go for an AGM, so far I've looked at OEM,Bosch and Varta ranging for £150-£250 ouch

    Great video. looks like the battery from that except I have no issues starting. Will try a repair of the battery via noco smart charger first and if still an issue I will have to invest in either a new battery or some more equipment.

    Possible battery/electrical issue

    Ok so I connected the smart charger yesterday afternoon and it read 25% at first then within 5 mins went upto 50% when I went back a few hours later it was fully charged. I left it connected over night and most of today as it just keeps it fully topped up without over charging. Unlocked the car and lifted the hood to find the charger had suddenly dropped to 25%..... now i I cannot see how that is possibly as that's a lot of power to use. I also doubt it's a charger issue. However as I charged it from under the hood I'm guessing that ibs controls this so I think this is faulty somehow. When I get home after work I was thinking about connecting directly to the battery in he boot. Question is would I need to disconnect the battery? also interested to hear any other ideas. Charger is a noco g3500uk (I think that's right)

    No fault with IBS showing in icarly. however icarly struggles to read info on battery. Oh ok that makes sense. I also read on other sites about different switches causing a drain. I did look but imo I dont think I have a drain and I had the battery checked and thats fine just needs a charge so my next step is a smart charger and see if that helps any. I will report back after I have had chance to charge the battery. 1 question though. Can I charge from the post under the bonnet or do I have to charge at the battery?

    Possible battery/electrical issue

    Still having this issue although not all the time. so while driving today I had icarly set some parameters ref battery battery voltage 14.13v from AD converter 14.13v DF-monitor for battery charge level 31.25% so voltage seems fine to me. Question is whats a DF and surely this cannot be correct as 31.25% would not of got the car started. ideas?

    Ok so I had the battery tested and it’s ok but needs a recharge? When I got home I plugged icarly in just to see if I had any faults that might be the issue and I also thought I’d re program the battery in too. But icarly was not able to read the battery apart from the amount of ah strange any ideas
