Battery Dead - 1.6 Multijet (2017)

Evening,

After a string if Fiats - Uno, Tempra, Brava and Punto, I took a Ford break but am pleased to be back with a Fiat. However, after only 30 days of owning this car (which I've really been enjoying) the battery seems to have packed up.

The AA Patrol guy ran some tests and thought that it needed replacing after putting it on charge.

I'm thinking of doing this myself having done it previously on other - albeit less technically advanced - cars.

Is this a job I can do myself (thinking about electronic engine / battery management systems) or should it really go into a garage?

Any advice appreciated...

Cheers

Welcome to the forum

Your question got me curious as I have the same engine in my MiTo with the Stop/Start battery, so I thought I'd google it - https://batteryworld.varta-automotiv...or-agm-battery

Suggests to me that it's a garage job, but could be carried out if we knew what steps/precautions to follow.

I had issues with battery failure on my 500x . Several times I disconnected it to charge in my shed. No issues whatsoever ... Three leads to disconnect. Lost radio settings and clock that’s all. Turned out had a faulty cell and was replaced under warranty.
