BA flat battery question

Hi everyone,

My friend left his BA XR6's lights on up at the snow and the engine wouldn't even crank, no central unlocking, no lights, nothing. We left it and planned to get some help when we were to leave, but when we came back later we had lights. We let it be for a little while longer before starting and idling the engine for a while to recharge the battery. Everything turned out fine.

My question is, what recharged the battery? And I wouldn't have expected that up at the snow.

Regards,

Andrew.


Sarge, get a load of my tie.

Re: BA flat battery question

Maybe the battery just needed to warm up a bit, like putting torch battery's under your armpitt's to get a little extra charge from them when they're going flat.

We live in an imperfect world, but
there is no point in trying to make it perfect, because not everyone can be GREEK!
