The doctor never sleeps. Sunday I got a call from a new patient that was stranded in the garage with a dead battery. The Cayman had sat for about a month this winter, and was dead dead. My assumption that it was probably an original Moll battery which are pretty horrible.
Put the battery charger on it quick to see what the condition of the battery was, and sure enough, the needle started bouncing around 0% charge. Usually when the needle on my charge goes haywire, it means there is a dead cell in the battery and it probably won’t come back. Time for a new battery. Ran to oreilly’s and picked up a group 48 and put it in, and the car fired right up.
The good thing…..this car is being driven and enjoyed! The worst (and most expensive) thing you can do to a newer Porsche is to let them sit. Took it for a spin around the block and all was good!
