      Hi Nathan - LH battery spec is critical. Unless you've matched the original spec (not just size), then I think you're doomed to have electrical problems.

      That's a little hard to understand/believe. If so, how is drive ever engaged again? And when my V6 (and to a lesser extent the V10) will if stationary, and brakes off, in Drive actually sets off,...

      Thanks Darren - all perfectly clear - and accords with my mental model of the torsen diff. I'm probably the least best person to detect this - I could barely tell when I'd got four wheel drive...
