I wanted something with highest CA and CCA for my '03 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS, and although the correct size, I went with higher CA and CCA due to having a very low drain from a top-notch security system on car and with cold winters and very hot summers where I lived, not going with the 'factory recommendations', upgrading to this was affordable and Shawna at Parson's Ave. Store in Columbus, OH knows her stuff, load-testing my system to make sure nothing else was bad. Kudos!

      Advance auto checked my battery out for free and found a ded cell. The replacement battery was in stock and was installed for free in just a few minutes. They recycled my old battery so I did not have to deal with its disposal. The pruchase was a pleasant experience.

                Battery only 10 months old and will not hold charge, had the complete charging system and electrical checked for anything drawing from the system. After having to charge the dead battery I drove over to the Advanced battery Auto Store to have it checked. the results were that the charging system was good but the battery only had 300 cold charging amps and said they would not warrant a replacement, my question was do you expect me to charge the battery everyday. So the only option I had was to go elsewhere to purchase a new battery and its been over a month without any problems. Will not go or recommend Advanced Auto since they cannot backup what they preach.

                        I'm happy to help, JohnEastCoast! This Autocraft Gold Battery (Part No. 86-2) and all Gold, Silver and Economy or red label Autocraft batteries are conventional/low-maintenance batteries. The Autocraft Platinum and Optima batteries are AGM. Optima batteries utilize spiral-cell AGM technology which provides 15x the vibration resistance of a conventional battery and a stronger starting burst.

                        Your warranty begins the day you purchase the battery, and expires at the end of the warranty period printed on your original receipt and Order Confirmation email, or when you sell your vehicle, whichever occurs first. This warranty cannot be transferred to anyone at any time.

                    • Q:

                      I purchased this battery back on 4/7/09 and the past few days I notice something weird. When I crank it, it starts fine but I notice the lightd are very dim and after 5-10 seconds it's like someone turned on the light switch and everything is bright. I just checked it with a meter and with the key in the ignition it reads 12.3v. As I turn the key it reads 10v, then 12v, then after a few seconds it rises to 14.1v. Could there be a problem with either the battery or the alternator?

                        Sounds like a ground problem to me... Make sure the negative cable is clean and tight..With a reading of 14.1 volt.. the alternator is working properly...If cleaning and tightning the ground doesn't solve your problem.. I would have the battery checked under a load...

                      • A:

                        The first thing i would check is the battery terminal connections. First disconnect them from the batt, and scurb them with a wire brush, and pour some vinager on the terminal posts. Recconnect them and start. If problem still persists then take off your altenator and take it in to nearest Advance Auto Parts Store and have them test the voltage regulator. If voltage regulator is bad you can replace just that , or buy new altinator.
