slow starting, battery recommendations - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
My car ('97 Aero) has two separate problems. The battery needs to be replaced, as it will not hold a charge for longer than 12-24 hours. I tried using a battery conditioner, to no avail. Wondering if anyone has any advice on which to avoid, which are good; this one was a Walmart MAXX-41N. Not too please because it only lasted 4 years (unfortunately can't find the receipt).
The second issue is slow starting, which is making the weak battery even more obvious. The car always starts, but it always takes 4-8 seconds of cranking. Are there any things to try besides plugs and the DI cassette?
