I had a problem today. It was raining and I had switched on my headlights while driving. I forgot to switch off the light and when I took the key out it seems the headlight had cut off and the parking light and fog lights were on. When I came back after 4 hrs, battery was dead. Do you guys know any good place to fix those buzzers wherein you take the key out with lights on will give the buzzing sound?

Hope KB can take this as a feed back and implement some system. It seems there is a system which comes with accent in some countries that when you switch off and take the key out all lights will shut down after a predetermined time. This is what I understood from the manual.

I only know that my previous Waja got this function (buzzing sound when the light is still on after taken out the key)...I think, u can go to the accesories shops to ask for this

I have fixed the buzzer last weekend from an accessory shop in Puchong.
He charged me RM 180/- not sure whether it is costly or not.......but when considering dead battery.....sure worth it......I fixed at the car accessory shop behind proton edar showroom opp. IOI mall.

but but but... it seem a bit odd that the battery got drained off so soon, i mean it went dead in 3 hrs' time...
for my sister's Sonata, she has left the lights on overnite before and yet the battery is still healthy... Crying or Very sad

I guess it's not too friendly to the absent-minded ones...

I don't think its any different. Look for more plates. My stock battery is only 9 plates. Planning to change mine to 11 or more plates.

Might get the MF type of battery if the weight is the same as liquid type.

I am referring to the size /type of the battery, our stock is N65, very diffucult to find out this type/size.......according to tkj who have changed his battery to her wife s car and used the normal size (maybe N50/60) one and found out that the power is weak for his accent (if I am not mistaken) and most of the car is using N50/60 only even 2.0cc
correct me if I am wrong Embarassed

Better to look for those with 11 plates battery. Our stock battery is 9 plates type. NS 50/60 or 65, I will have to shop around.

PostPosted: Thu Jan 06, 2005 3:37 pm    Post subject: dry cell battery Reply with quote

good day,

how about dry cell battery, any information about this? i am think of changing to dry cell battery when my current battery is old or going to die!!
how long does our battery lasts? what i was told is that if your battery can lasts for more than 18 months, that is very good already! Rolling Eyes and it is not advisable to keep on using the battery until it dies!

tip to know if your battery is old and it is time to change it:
1. if you have to fill-up your battery with battery water every 7 days coz' the battery water is below the recommended level, you should change your battery as soon as possible, this is because you have approximately 4 weeks to 3 weeks before the battery dies or before you have trouble starting your car.
2. for new battery, less than 12months, normal maintenance is to top-up the battery water is about 3 months or 5000km.
3. more than 12months, every 4-8 weeks, check and top-up.

but with dry cell battery, no maintenance needed! just plug and play
Laughing Laughing Laughing
down side of dry cell battery is that it is expensive!, hopeful the price will drop soon Wink Wink
