Re: Battery problem on 2010 e81 120d auto

My individual reported the faults were related to low battery charge as suspected due to a combination of winter extra battery load, cold weather & a lot off very short journeys. They put the car on a charger, checked battery voltages etc and is happy all is on order. No battery required & no cost :...

Re: Winters are on!

Ice is ice and unless you have studded tyres then it makes no diffrence. I would like to try summer vs winter tyres in the same conditions in the same car with the same driver..... . Yep.... Whatever.... There is your pure ice comparison. http://youtu.be/L2wTg0l3_wI" onclick="window.open(this.href)...

Re: Battery problem on 2010 e81 120d auto

If I dig around and check tomorrow and take a photo can we confirm if it is an AGM battery visually?
I guess all AGM batteries need coding?

Auto does not have the stop start but it does have the Brake Energy Regeneration system. thanks for the heads up - i’ll check. :) and make sure my Indi is a...

Re: Battery problem on 2010 e81 120d auto

I don't have a trickle charger :( anspd a ctek one will cost around 60GBP. It is borderline worthwhile, the battery is >4yrs old and and she moved jobs this week which will mean longer drives, so it might just be worthwhile replacing it if it is on its way out.
