Here's the question:
On a modern tow vehicle, in this case a 2007 F-150, the battery is contained on a nifty plastic box. What is the purpose of the nifty plastic box?
- 1. To protect the vehicle from battery acid.
- 2. To protect the battery from the extreme environment of the engine compartment and thus extend it's life.
- 3. It looks nice.
- 4. All of the above.
- 5. None of the above. The box is in case the dealer must replace your battery under warranty he can swap your factory group 65 for a replacement group 59 and you will not know about it until 6 1/2 years later!!
The correct answer is "5"... well, it least the little battery lasted 6 1/2 years. But still, you have to watch these folks like a hawk and you shouldn't have to.
