Questions

2/ls there any way for me to charge the battery up from the electrical house sockets.
3/l heard there are those solar panel gadgets you plug in the cars light socket to charge the battery up.Where do l get one and how much does it cost.

Hi snail

I'm afraid if your battery isn't even lasting two days, it can only be one of 2 things:

1. Battery is dead (replace with a new one)

2. Something on the car is draining the battery when idle (have to get drain on battery checked, in my case, it was my alarm)

Sorry I can't be more positive (excuse the weak pun!)

Cheers

I can only agree with what Chris has said. Before you spend too much get is checked out for anything that is draining the battery or a short even? is it petrol or Diesel?

When I replaced the battery on the Pajero, I bought it from the local car spares shop in town. It cost me 120 leva and was there and fitted the next day.

You need to have your electrical system checked by an auto electrician. I suspect that your alternator may be faulty or you may just have a old dud battery. If it is something that is draining the stored energy then that needs looking at by an expert. But I doubt that, that is the problem more like that your battery is just finished.

There is an auto Electrician in Veselinovo which is near Yambol.

If you want a new battery you can buy one for a reasonable price in 2 shops near the market in Yambol, that is the market near Kaufland and the shops are near by the Blood checking place.

Thanks Guy's.l think l have enough info to know what to do now.But l was hoping it would have been a minor problem without the added burden of forking out money to buy a battery.
Thanks

l have it all sorted out now.The liquid in the battery wasn't covering the battery cells.l have topped it up and had it recharged.l now take the battery in the bedroom every day wrapped up in a blanket .And when l need to use the car,l just connect it all up knowing the battery is warm.lt fires up first time even in temperatures of -10 and more.
