Question type: General

I have a 2 year old motorcraft  battery that was dead and

what would void a battery waranty?  It's suppose to be free
up too 36 months and than pro rated after that. I just want
to be prepared when I take it back for a new one tomorrow.
Any help would be appriciated.

If the car was parked for a very long time it would pull down the battery, especially if it has an alarm or some other system that is always on and a load on the battery. If you tried to charge it, you could have damaged it so I would say you just pulled it out of the car so you could have it checked and or replaced. Take your original paperwork with you. If you want a real battery that will last get an INTERSTATE Mega-Tron Plus.

Thank you! And I will look into the mega tron!

All I run is Gel cell batteries, they last a lot longer that convential lead acid batteries, plus no mess from battery out gassing. I put one in my old 3/4 ton Chevy truck that did more sitting than running, but everytime you wanted it, the engine fired right up, had that battery in there for 5 years and was still in there when I gave the truck to my oldest son, and he had the same battery for another 3 years before it quit taking a charge. I'm sold on these.

If you have a 36 month warranty the battery was deemed "dead" they should replace it for free
