Dead car


Recommended Posts

RAC tried to jump start the car.

Sparks flying from the battery post when jumper cable attached. He stated there is a short in the system.

Believes the alternator has gone and caused a low lever resistance path across the battery.

Battery has drained itself very quickly thus the various warning lights then completed power down.

Waiting to get car booked into garage.

Will post outcome once known.

Well, alternator went into self destruct mode. Died and also took out. 1year old battery with it. Was quoted £770 for new alternator and installation. Still to add battery costs. Real bummer.
