How does your car react when you disconnect the battery?

disconnect the battery

This observation started about 5 years ago when a friend won’t understand my refusal to allow him jumpstart his car with my car battery. In a bid to pacify him, I paid a battery charger who did the job in a jiffy.

My car was a 2003 Toyota Camry and I had noticed the car vibrates and shivers once the battery terminals were removed and reconnected. The engine revs (RPM) fluctuates and the car jerks when in motion. Abi nah cold they catch you?? This could happen for about 30 minutes or more before the engine speed would normalize.

Afterwords, I began to notice other cars that have their own peculiar syndrome.

These are some of the issues I have seen in other cars when their batteries are disconnected:

  • Passenger’s window will not roll down for 2 days before it starts to work again.
  • I have also seen check engine lights come up falsely.
  • AC stopped working until it was reprogrammed with a scan tool.
  • Faulty airbag code comes on.
  • Some cars may not even start at all.

Thank God my current car does not have any of these issues. However, I am sure some of us still get these annoying battery problems.

Tell us the attitude your car gives when you disconnect the battery and how you manage it.
