Thread: Rear electric going haywire

  1. #1

    Default Rear electric going haywire

    2007 Krystal 8pax. All sorts of weird issues in the rear started out of the blue.
    Stereo turning on and off. Random shut off of electrical power to the whole rear compartment.

    As suspected, replacing both batteries (original 2007's) resolved the issue.

    Just passing along in case anyone ever reads this down the road.
    I pretty much knew what to do because my very first limo in 2004 had the same thing happen to it when it hit 3 years old.

    If available in the size needed, a deep cycle is better for the battery that runs the back, right?

    Low voltage problems will drive you crazy trying to figure it out. Cheapest fix is always replace both batteries first.

    We use these little lighter-plug voltage meters, get them at Walmart for under 20 bucks. They work great to keep an eye on voltage problems that may occur. It gives you a baseline of what is normal that way you can tell when something goes wrong before it leaves you on the side of the road.
