sounds like a dead cell or two for sure,


im surprised the car is still running off it if you ask me,

when you get a new battery, you will notice your lights are brighter, dash lights wont flicker when you turn on lights etc,

i bet your alternator is making some pretty cool noises atm too, if you can pick it, it sounds like a supercharger, it whistles when putting out the big amps
After sitting here reading this post and putting two and two together Ive realised my battery is forked , I was wondering what that whistle noise was:bang: Cheers andyman I never would of picked it . Is there a good battery to get as a upgrade as i also have sub /amp or is it best to leave stock size Cheers People:thumbsup:

super charge is the brand, gold is the type of battery, mine is a MF53 see - Supercharge Batteries - Car Batteries, Maintenance, Expanded Grid Technology

ac delco also make really good batteries - see ACDelco Australia

alot of holden dealers sell acdelco cause its one of there parts suppliers, super charge is sold at super charge dealers or mostly auto electricians,


supercharge has the longest garrantee of 3 years, the only problem ive had is on a track day it leaked acid out of the breather, which did cause paint damage, but i think it was caused by either overcharging because of constant high revs and no real load on the battery, or engine bay temps got extremly hot, i burnt my hand on the strut brace when checking the trans dipstick
