    Starter Battery Discharge

    Van stands idle most of time on drive and standing load is depleting battery volts ... falling as low as 11.8V after couple of weeks forcing me to put the mains battery charger on for a day to get volts back up to near 13. There's nothing switched ON in the van so the parasitic load of .. BCM ...

    Another Battery Thread Yay... After reading many threads include @Dellmassive Battery Chargers How I did it. Since the battery is dead (just enough to sound the alarm) I plan on getting this NOCO 10 amp charger to fully charge and then maintain this charge by plugging it in every few days...

    Flat Batteries

    Hi All, I have been perusing this thread, Flat battery and noticed that things had to be reset if you change your main starter battery. Does this apply to all T5/T6 models and if so can it be done with Carista rather than VCDS? A little more knowledge is always appreciated. Next is, what do the...

    Flat Battery, Anyone Else Had This Problem

    Went on holiday a few months ago and the van was left parked at home for three weeks. Prior to going away I was doing a 42 mile drive to work every day so the battery was as charged as it could have been...no short journeys or having all the electrics on. I also have a spare battery fitted by...

    Moll Flounders...

    Right second attempt at this thread... Let down really badly by Agnes this morning when she wouldn't start, all loaded up for a cycle ride and... nothing followed by random end of the world messages from the dash display. Thing is we were camping in her last weekend and will be off again in a...

    Moll Battery.

    So, the battery failed on me 4 times, and VW still insist on having their dealers do “tests”. The last time, I had finished a survey on top of Mendip. Phoned local dealer about my appointment the following day for the tests, and went to start and nothing, with their service department actually...

    Faulty Battery Farce

    Ever since the weather turned cooler my July '17 Transporter has struggled starting and during December the battery went flat twice after the van stood unused for 2 days. This progressed to it failing to start outside a customer's house after standing for 8 hours. My nearest Vw dealer is 8...
