    Battery replaced from stock Exide DIN 44 to Amaron Flo DIN 45

    After almost 5 years of service, the stock battery Exide DIN 44 gave up. It was all started showing its signs by not cranking when the engine was hot, like if i take the car for a spin and shut off and try to start again. It will not crank up and die. On cold start, it worked fine. I dragged this for couple of months like this but it was getting scary and irritant for short runs.

    Anyways it had lived up its life and served well, so thought to get it replaced. I had read lot of positive reviews about Amaron brand on PUG and that gave me confidence over Exide. Amaron also offered me 48 months warranty which Exide wasn't. Also the battery guy told me even though the DIN is almost the same with Exide but the output is far better than Exide.

    My driving is not much and I don't use any high power gadgets so went for the stock power DIN 45.

    The model is Amaron Flo and it costed me Rs 5000 after discount. Original quote was Rs 57xx

    Battery Type: 545171036
    Free Warranty (in Months): 24
    Pro-rata Warranty (in Months): 24

    Any connection to blown fuse and dying (now dead) battery?

    No, MK. The battery was replaced almost 2 weeks back. I'm posting this late.

    But yeah I did had the below questions running in my mind after the recent episode of blown fuse.

    1. What would lead to a blown fuse?

    2. Has changing to a new battery caused any power fluctuation?? Never had any electrical problems with earlier battery

    Five years of service! That's what I completed recently . And guess what, even I am at the verge of giving up.

    Jokes apart, a battery lasting 5 years is awesome, mine gave up the ghost in 4 years and the current one has turned 3 and still going strong.

    I am not too sure if there is a linkage between your car's fuse blowing and the battery, but is it possible something is drawing a whole lot of power? Did you do any recent addition to your dingchak lights?

    cheers,

    If everything is in control, you aren't going fast enough.

    My stock Exide battery in the Palio Stile went kaput about 3 months ago. Replaced it with Exide again with stock DIN. With FIATs I have learnt that if something works well for the car, don't change it because no one will know how to fix it

    Stay stock should be FIATs mantra

    No dhingchak lights added apart from a small LED lights above the headlamp which takes the connection for parking lights. But that was done I guess a year back now. Apart from new battery installed, as mentioned in the other thread, during replacement of the Master cylinder of the clutch, the mechanic had to remove the cover below the Steering wheel and the wheel was hanging with its wires exposed.
