As soon as I turn the key to the accessories position, the system voltage plummets and within a minute there would not be enough charge to crank the car.
Visually inspected the battery and I realise it's well and truly dead - a slight bulge on its side.
So, tomorrow I'm doing the obvious and fitting a new battery...
However, what concerns me a little is that my car happen to have a Valeo altenator... what would the symptom of a faulty voltage regulator be? Would it cause a big enough spike to frag a battery like that?
Anyway here are some reference Test #9 voltages:
Running and idle:
Running and above 1500rpm:
13.7v - 14.1v
Don't let it fall below 11v
Any comments would be appreciated, cheers
