I used my car yesterday after a long time, started with a bit of a struggle, got to my destination and on the way back it wouldn’t start. My mate had to jump start it for me.
Called RAC today, they said the battery is not accepting charge and that I need a new battery.
Surely it’s just because my cars been idle for a very long time so the battery hasn’t had a chance to charge with the engine on?
I told the guy I’d think about it and buy one if I get an issue again. He started the car and I’ve left the engine running so the battery can charge.
Should I replace the battery or not?
