    I turned up on the first job today and nothing worked so I popped down my local mechanics and it was my leisure battery I brought the last one 1 year and 2 days ago it is meant to come with a 1 year guarantee so not to happy but in the end he said I could pay half as I give him a lot of business which was fine but had to wait until lunchtime for it to arrive so not the best Monday

    Sorry to hear that mark. What brand and model battery was it as surely should have lasted longer than that?

    I was looking to try and find a link to see if I could remember what battery I had i I could not find it but I am glad I did because I am going to be on the phone tomorrow because they all seem to come with at least 2 years guarantee
