    Vehicle : 2t

    Trim : standard

    Engine : z20net

    Year : 08

    Mileage : 32000

    Default Query

    After leaving the car standing for an hour,with the side lights and the radio on i had to 'bump' the car yesterday. That was a pain but ok.
    At home,after a 17 mile return trip, a voltmeter indicated approx 12.9 volts.
    Ater removing the battery for charging the voltmeter indicated approx 13 r so vaults. Not a huge increase but maybe the cars charging system is working.
    Anyhow my question is this...i m now trying to reset the cars radio etc...
    And do i have to reset the BSR remap?? Must admit the cars driving very well though so i mguessing not...
    ANY ideas??

    A standard automotive battery won't show more than ~12.65v when fully charged(unless it's just been pulled off charge). Were you measuring whilst the alternator was running? If so then 12.9/13 is too low. Otherwise, you need to leave it a while to measure really.

    Just thought id let you knw that as id not got any of the security codes for my car i went to the dealer i bought the car from in late 2007.
    He couldnt help other than to direct me to the local Vauxhall dealer.
    When i phoned the Vauxhall dealer they couldnt help other than to redirect me to the dealer who originally sold the car.
    A quick phone call ater and id got all the codes i could ask for and advise to bok my care into my local dealer for the handbrake recall.
    So the moral of the story...make a phne call.You never know

    Your remap shouldn't be affected by having the battery disconnected.
