Replaced battery after 2-3 years usage since used up. It run well for a short drive, then when I had a long drive in countryside for firts time battery started to heat and acid vapors generated, with the baterry leaking form bottom and after 3 hours car came to stop with major electrical failure affetcting alternator. ABS, Central locking, wipers etc. The car was running perfect before except difficult to start so battery replaced. Can this type of battery failure cause this major breakdown? Previous battery exactlt same model run perfectly for years. Am struggling with battery manufacturer to pay repair or car scrap residual value as repair is over 3000 euros.
A nesw battery installation coincide exactly in time with the major failure, statistcally is alsmos inpossible that the system failed causing the new component (battery) to fail.
have the same problem?
