Re: [MBZ] Walmart AGM battery

I had  a NAPA house brand and the damned thing would go dead overnight.  I
would jump  it, take it to NAPA, they'd say it's fine.  The drive over was
enough to charge it enough to make it look fine.  Finally had it die on the
road.   AAA driver said it was NFG.  Went over to Walleyworld and got a new
one.  No problems to date.

Flaming ACTUAL death on a DC-10, occasionally, yes, but that's part of the

My first attempt to ride an Airbus was in the early 80s; it BSODed and we

I bought my first rustbucket 111 in 1998, so started with the Mercedes
Veterans group, then R-E, briefly joined MBCA, left after they were less
than thrilled with the mouse I brought to a meeting (I figured that since I
found it in my newly-purchased 1968 220D it was apropos), then was in at
the beginning of the original Dickarde Banned and MBZ lists, then off to
the K'leb lists when they started...

I've pretty much had at least one beater MB in the fleet since 1998, which
should qualify me for some sort of Eternal Masochist award...  :D

1) Make sure the unit is unpowered.   Don't ask me how I know this.
2) Spray contact cleaner on contacts while working them.
3) Dry with canned air.
4) Plug in and enjoy improved sound!
