No real requestion, but 9 months of occasional use, moving around on the drive, I think has killed the 3 year old factory-issue Panasonic battery in my NA MX5. Even when disconnected, its no longer really holding charge, and maybe its a battery issue that has lead to occasional hot start no starts.
Previously, in 2017, the car was in for welding that extended over 2 months, and during that time, the (then) 10 year old Panasonic battery just died, and the garage thoughtfully fitted a lead acid battery. Well, when the car was home, that came out, replaced by a brand new Panasonic. After all, these last 15+ years and don’t rot out the boot.
Just checked the no-brand lead acid battery that has sat in the garage for 3 years. Its still showing 12.2V…
I expect movement restrictions to continue for the next 6-9 months (at least). So the lead acid battery might go back in, boot lid kept opn in storage.
