The battery and alternator supply power to the entire vehicle, and a dead battery can kill the entire car. However, replacing or recharging a dead battery in European cars isn’t always as easy as it seems. Several European models use new AGM batteries in place of traditional lead-acid batteries. AGM batteries have greater durability and cycling resistance, but they require specialized charging equipment to avoid damage and do come at a higher cost. Additionally, a specialist may have to reprogram or reset the computer control system to work seamlessly with the new battery.
Replacing the battery might not be the solution to your recurring problem.
