need battery advice - no not a repeat 'whos better' thread
so i have two batts that are less than a year old and they are toast. if i wait 15 or so seconds for glows before i crank i can only crank for a few seconds. normally i dont even have to crank that long. they are just toast. i have to charge them all the time to start. it gets worse in the cold. yes the alternator is fine. took them to the store where i bought them, they test as good, but they are putting in the load/charger. they dont know what kind of load it puts on them, but im assuming its a gasser style load so they will end up passing.
my question is, since they are truthfully toast - for a diesel anyway, is there anything i can do to them to make them show up bad on a tester? feels wrong doing that as im an honest person, but i also feel this is justified.
that being said who has expirience with walmart customer service? lol yes they are wally batteries, but the price was all i could do at the time. if i can get these replaced then ill get some real batteries in the spring.
thanks for the help all...
