Master Sergeant, I’m sorry to hear about the problems you’ve been having and I’d like to help. Can you tell me a little bit more about your situation and the events surrounding the failure? What is the voltage of the battery when your engine is running? Do you know what the voltage was of your previous batteries? What kind of battery maintainer do you use and at what settings?
Many of the “bad” batteries returned to us are deeply-discharged and do work fine, when properly-recharged. The Hot Rod article does provide some very useful information that explains how to recharge a lot of those batteries. We also have a video explaining the procedure-
