Temp Battery Exchange
#1
Hi all,

Relating to my previous post where I reported suspected battery failure, can I temporarily use a different size of battery to get me on the road again?

The battery that came out of my Mk1 1.9D Berlingo was an 067 66ah 620 cca model. Can I get by with a 44ah 360cca one for a short period? Will it have enough power to crank the old diesel engine?

Well, the cca is a bit over half of what the original is so I'd expect a problem cranking when it's a wee bit nippy outside. If it fits I'd say it's worth a try. Also, if/when the motor does start be sure to measure the voltage across the terminals to determine if the alternator is charging or not,

Thank you 3rensho.

I'll give it a try then. Fingers crossed it's not the alternator that's at fault...
