When those modules "go bad" they won't even allow the car to crank. A good cleaning would cure it anyway.

Yeah sometimes you can end up with a dead Cell... I do check mine for water every now and again... I have refilled them with distilled a couple of times in 3 years I think... Its always great to have that Warranty tho...

Usually I Think a batter will buldge if its getting overcharged... But I just don't think thats the case if you are running 14v...

Mine last everstart was buldging before it died...

There are 2 caps on the Everstart batteries that can be removed to check the water level in the cells... I usually fill to the bottom of the hole or what ever they call it...lol

Hmmm... Out of all the AC Delco Batteries I have had, I have only managed 3-4 years on their sealed for life batteries...

Aren't AC Delco batteries made by Johnson Controls?

Die Hard, EverStart, Duralast, ...... all made by JC
