Hey guys,
Im gonna get a new battery for my VZ wagon. I've been occasionally getting the "ABS fault" beep and also sometimes it won't kick over straight away if not driven for a couple of days.

Is it as simple as just buying a new battery myself, take off battery leads/terminals, take out old battery, throw in new one, replace leads/terminals?

I just don't wanna upset computer/electrical stuff if that's possible???

Cheers :thumbsup:

Bingo! Just plug and play buddy. The only way you can upset the computer is if you are trying to jumpstart it...

make sure not to get the terminals mixed up otherwise ZAAAPPPPPPP

Batteries do have terminals reversed, so if you get the wrong one (can be the right CCA but with reversed terminals) you could plug the wrong plug ontot he wrong terminal.

Just double check, black goes to - and red positive goes to + on the battery :thumbsup:
