i took the battery in to the autoparts and they hooked up their electrickery tester, and the fellow said it was good on volts, but not so much on amps--that it needed a charge...? Well if the voltage is somehow high then how can it charge without boiling over.
So i just bought a new one, type 151R or 51R is the exact size to fit, it just has a flat bar and not the screw caps for adding water, $135 at Advance or O'Reilly. Neverstart Gold Ultra, 370 CCA!
i think the date code was july 2010, 071092, so it may have only been in service since Jan 2012, but it was over 6 years old. It may be that the few times i had the errors before in the past year were just due to weak 12V battery and something acting up when it was hot weather?
Kiev seems to be running normal, no more errors.
Joe better get ready to buy 3 new batteries, you are on your last legs with those--they don't last forever...
