About the only thing that you will have to reset is the clock if the battery was dead for a while. I hooked up the new battery and was able to tighten down the posts and nothing happened. No power anywhere.
The AGMbattery uses glass mats that absorb a very small amount of acid (electrolytes) held in place by surface tension and capillary action. ... My Volt started acting weird and not initializing around 4.5 years old. Tried a 12V battery disconnect to reset all computers, but ended up having to change the 12V batteryto fix the issue.
@Paulster2 The problem with charging Optima is not that the battery is AGM, it is that they use pure Lead plates. I am aware of one other company using pure Lead, Odyssey. Everyone else is using a Lead alloy, for AGM the alloy is Lead-Calcium. Lead-Calcium is even used in the majority of non-AGM battery types, with a minority using Lead-Antimony.
How To Properly Jump Start An AGM Battery. 1). Make sure that the jump-starter is in AGM mode. 2). Avoid letting the AGM battery go down to 0% charge. 3). Do not jump start a damaged battery. 4). After jumpstarting the battery, let the can run for 15 minutes.
Step 1 - Open the hood (front) If your battery is completely dead and your hood is closed, you'll need to have your new battery and a set of jumper cables on hand before you begin. Otherwise, the hood isn't going to open and the battery isn't going to come out unless you are a wizard. If you are a wizard, congratulations.
