I got the battery back yesterday, fully charged. After reconnected and turned the key, only a few indicator light come up...the first two are missing:
High-beam headlights on / No battery charge
I think that the Low engine oil pressure and Low coolant level also did not light up as all of them went off very quickly!
I managed to start the engine and smoke were seen in the engine compartment. The rubber ( exhaust ) air hose connected to the plastic part before the airfilter was loose or broken so smoke came out and in addition, leaking engine oil caused the burning smell.
The guy and the service station has a meter and by measuring the voltage of battery, it was 12.8V before starting and dropped to 12.6V but after giving some gas, it came back to 13.1V but not more so is the dynamo ( charger ) O.K.?
Right now, I have disconnected the minus terminal of the battery to avoid that it is drained again. Please favor your comments.
