Started on second attempt: Worry?
Had a little issue this morning coming back to the car from the gym. I get in and tried to start the car only to hear a loud mechanical thunk from the engine bay. The electronics came up and the car gave a groan then just died. As this happened the battery charge level went down to one - forced recall I'm guessing. Car started up on second attempt but with a heavy noisy start. Then it went right into charging while at idle.
I'm assuming the battery went into recalibrate mode as soon as I started. Anyone every experience this?
Cold out, but not that cold. Temp info displayed 26 F an hour earlier
Car had been running fine prior at about 7 bars
Car had recalled the battery shortly after starting out last night. Then I assumed because it WAS cold! 14 F reading and the info display was slow to update
Car was fine on the way home, just a normal forced charge drive
Deleted MPG tracker..... to horrible to mention. Damn winter and hills. Damn them
