Re: Volkswagen Polo 1.2L GT TSI : Official Review
A question, wondering if anyone has faced this before:
My Polo seems to have a problem with charging the battery. Recently put in a new Amaron battery, however within a week or 2 used to get the notification on the media unit saying the battery is low. Also the lights would occasionally flicker when using the AC/wipers or putting a load on the electrical circuit. Then eventually the battery went completely flat and I was not able to start the car.
Today, I used a powerbank jumpstarter, and it started immediately. However after driving around for almost an hour, came home parked the car, and tried to use it again 15 mins later and it was completely dead again, not even enough juice for the car to unlock using the fob.
So I am thinking the alternator probably has some problem? Don't think it is the battery as it is not more than a few months old.
Wondering if anyone has faced a similar problem and/or replaced the alternator, and how much this would cost?
