Hi All. Thanks for tips. I've had a cold over the weekend so didn't fancy lieing on the garage floor! But I'll get to it soon. As soon as I locate the problem I'll post here. Thanks again. BR // Adrian.C
Hi Wizzard. The old battery would go flat after about a week. So I would charge it. Then I started putting it on charge after every time i drove so it would be ok the next time I wanted to go out. The car is kept in a heated garage, and is used only between April and October. The battery was new late last year, a Bosche S5. I've had the battery off the car for maintenace charging (car has cover, during winter,and I did not want to leave it on charge in car) After I connected the battery terminals, and closed the bonnet, I saw smoke comming out the rear (RH engine cover side, blue) Burnt electrical smell. I was looking in the area marked with a pink arrow (pic from net, not my car). I couldn't see any obvious signs of wire damage. I didn't check starter or starter/solenoid, don't actually know where it sits. I've since disconected the battery, and want to try and locate fault before connecting again; fear of doing more damage. Any ideas ?? BR // Adrian.C
Dear All; Help ! I have a 996 tt from 2001. I removed my battery from the car to charge over winter. When I connected the battery again yesterday, I saw some smoke come out from the engine cover grills. It stopped vey quickly, but I couldn't see where it came from. Has anybody had this problem ?? Any ideas what the problem could be ?? I have had issues with the car battery going flat if not used for a week. Is this related ?? All ideas greatly appreciated. Best Regards, Adrian.C
