AGM battery

Post by exmokkaman » Tue Jun 23, 2020 4:04 pm

Looking to fit a new battery (AGM). Various intermittent faults showing, Can't drive off without touching handbrake button and foot brake peddle. engine fault needs repair, front drivers door open. Total lack of power when starting off from stop. (only once). I was told by a technition that the battery isn't being charged enough. What size ah is best for 2019 Grandland x 1.2 petrol business edition nav. Thanks in advance.

Bought an AGM battery online from Halfords yesterday. £159 +25 fitting, total £184. Received a text message about half an hour later saying it was ok to call and have it fitted. Went to my local store and a technician asked me what make and model of car the battery was for. I told him and he declared that his machine didn't have the updated software to do it. I got an apology and refund but that doesn't help with the battery replacement. How do they carry on in business?

I would try and get it done under warranty exmokkaman by contacting headoffice and going to The CEO office which I did and got mine replaced. They know the Varta batteries arent good so replace quiet easily.
