First and only problem so far, purchased used last summer with about 32K miles, LOVE this car!!!!!
Don't think daughter left any lights on but can't be sure (dome or headlight), but came out to a dead 12 volt. This happened about two months ago as well. Had daughter drive it around for half an hour after jump charging (does that even rejuvenate battery from electric motor, same concept?)
I don't have original owner records and can't tell if this is original (yes, original) battery from factory. I see no terminal corrosion.
Here is read out from AAA:
too discharged for accurate analysis.
Bad news, she then pulled it up in backyard for charging after driving it around, went out to drive it and again dead as door nail.
I'm thinking it's probably time to find a new battery?
Any suggestions on a company that would come to the house and put in?
How hard are these to find (to fit, looks so cute and little)?
These cars are heavy to push, ask me how I know, lol. I don't think we could manage to get it out of the grass and down the really long drive, and would prefer finding someone who could change it at my house.
Are there any extra safety precautions needed to exchange battery due to the lithium set-up? I suppose I could talk my dad into exchanging if I could find one somewhere to buy, he'll be in town in a few days.
I live in Kansas City.
