Sprint ST (99-01)

X-Man:
Of course it could simply be the battery. Does it read 12 volts or more with key in on position.


Yes, it does, around 12.5v, though it drops to 11.3 whilst cranking. I don't know much about how to interpret that data and the Haynes book I've got doesn't seem to shed much light either! But a poster on the RAT forum mentioned that the replacement battery I've gone for doesn't have the best CCA, so I guess next time it comes time to swap it out I'll trawl the forum for a recommendation! Bit gutting because the juicier Yuasa was only another tenner but they didn't have any in stock at Halfords when I was down there.

I appreciate all the help guys. I'm still lurking on the page and making the most of all the advice. I did an oil change and swapped out the filter for a new OEM today, following top info here. So far so good!

Cheers 33
