No, I haven't found an answer yet and will continue waiting if necessary.
Best regards, Muny
Not sure what information or reply from me you are after. I responded only a couple of days ago, saying that I would continue to wait if necessary.
I certainly did not imagine I'd be bombarded with meaningless e-mails.
If you can't find anybody with an answer to my problem please just say so and we'll close the question.
Thanks response !
1. I have tightened (only slightly) the earth connection cable clamp on the battery about a week ago and have not had the problem since.
2. I did not measure the voltage while the starter (if it was the starter) was just clicking. I will measure the voltage next time the clicking happens, if it does !
3. I don't think the dashboard lights went out during the clicking, they may have dimmed, not sure though. I will look out next time the clicking happens, if it does !
Thanks and regards, Muny
I think that you provided a good and useful response. Just one point: there was a specific question in my original inquiry, regarding the possibility of an intermittent battery cell collapse: "...unless it [the battery] could be suffering from an intermittent collapse of a cell - can it ?"
Do you know if it can ?
The battery make is not obvious but it is the original battery fitted to Czech made i30s in 2010. The code and other specific information on it are: MF-54-26GL, 12V, RC:110 min CCA:600A
Hopefully that will give you the necessary information.
Thanks again and best regards, Muny
I did reply to your qustions above, this on Jan 17. Not heard back from you on that. No worries.
I have also rated your advice as good and paid the fee + tip (just under £5).
information, I have left the car with a franchised dealer week, it failed to start on day 5 when it was freezing. They then replaced the battery (after their tests repeatedly indicated the battery to be OK).
I just hope that it was the battery and the saga is over...
Best regards, Muny
