Re: What does this mean? (PinoyG60)

Dude, I thought we gave you some great recomendations yesterday. What happened?
When I replaced the wires from my battery to and from. My lights no longer dimmed (slighlty) when I had my stereo on loud. Replace your wires. SaabFan used 2AWG where as I used 4AWG, go with 2 AWG as I will be re-doing mine again soon.

Can someone elaborate on this battery drain thing? What it is and can it be fixed for good? That would scare me away from a G60 for sure...

Don't worry, there isn't any major mysterious battery drain that all Corrados suffer from. Granted, lots of people suffer from battery/charging system problems, but usually the fix is something pretty easy, and problems like this are bound to happen in any car that is 10 years old.
But if something as simple as a battery drain is scary, the Corrado is not the car for you. They are great cars, but they have their share of common problems that are worse than a battery drain.

Problems don't scare me, but problems with no fixes do! I was thinking there was some mysterious battery drained that was a way of life ofr the G60, guess not
