Ford Focus Calcium Vs Lead Batteries?
Posted 17 January 2013 - 09:12 PM
does anyone have clarification on this?
curious to know about this smart charging etc...and the effectivness compared to regular lead batteries couldnt tell u the difference betwen the two to be honest!
when it comes to stripping an engine down and bodywork ill happily do it all but electrics realy are not my thing...too fiddly and the rhyme the blue one connects the red one and so forth doesnt apply to cars
thanks guys look forward to hearing your responses

using a standard lead acid will probably boil the electrolyte inside it and destroy it in no time.
so basically any modern ford should have one..

Its very simple -
A modern car uses complicated digital systems, it has literally millions of components
the digital systems are fed by analog sensors - these analog sensors measure voltage or resistance
for example - a temprature sensor - the resistance or voltage changes depending on (head) temprature
this analog voltage or resistance is converted into digital (via an A-D (analog-digital) converter) then this data is read by the ECU (engine control unit)
The system is designed for a silver- calcium battery, (which operates at a higher voltage)
If a regular lead - acid battery is used, this can change the overall voltage, this can make the sensors give "false" information which can generate error codes and running problems (because the ECU is being fed incorrect information )
this is why the wrong battery can cause so many problems - it affects many sensors on the car (and many error codes may be generated)
