    I'm not the most skilled person around at interpreting that data.
    • Looks like you've had three low-voltage incidents, two today and on on the 13th.
    • However, no no-load current overranges, so it you probably don't have an excessive drain problem with everything off.
    • I'm scratching my head on the battery change history. Didn't you say the battery was changed? If I'm reading that section correctly, nobody bothered to tell the car.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Thanks Uwe.
    No, the battery is the original as far as I know. The car was first registered in September 2016 and I bought it used in March 2017.
    I'm guessing that it might be coming to the end of it's life given the low output- despite recently being fully charged.

    Decided to change battery- wife couldn't stand the issues we were having, so had to try something.
    However, this has given rise to my other thread on battery coding: https://forums.ross-tech.com/showthr...ng-Help-needed!
