Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Hyundai Excel 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 115, 00 miles
After years of trouble free motoring, car would not start. Battery is RAC Battery 18 months old still under warranty.
Car totally dead. RAC service man said the starter was not working and battery needed to be recharged by them. My husbands battery charger that he uses on our 4 wheel drive Toyota would not charge it. Serviceman said it was because it was a calcium battery.
He got the car started and ran it for at least 15-20 minutes from his own car but when he took the leads off the car was still totally dead. Whilst it was still connected had no trouble starting it ie no starter problem.
There was not a problem with the starter before the battery went. Just wondered how he thinks it is a starter problem.
have the same problem?
