Well my battery decided it didn't want to be a battery anymore. Sudden too after nearly 5 years of faithful service. started no problems the night before, got me home, parked up. Next morning unlock car, click, click, click - no starter, on with the fan, won't turn off. No juice to lock the car with the plip. I first thought ECU problems, but the battery just died. Got a jump start, everything back to life.

I replaced the battery but I couldn't get one the same size (to fit in the battery tray, they were all bigger) rated at the same Amp Hours. The Delphi supplied is 63 Amp Hours, but the only replacement I could get at short notice was 55 Amp hours but a higher rated CCA.

So the point of this story? Can I expect any problems from having a lower capacity battery?
