Hi All,

I've had my 360 for about 12 months now and have just hit my first battery issue :( It went for about 2 weeks without a run which hasn't been an issue until now but I guess I've been pushing my luck by the sounds of it.

I've pulled the battery out (which is a pain) and am currently charging it up as I type this but what I'm still just wondering for future reference is if 360's can be jumpstarted??

It's not something that I would really want to try but was just wondering if anyone here has done it or know's what the official stance is on jumpstarting ferrari's.

Cheers.

Yes, you can jumpstart a 360 but it is not recommended. If you do have to jumpstart it, turn on the headlights, turn signals, stereo, etc to help diffuse the power surge.

You can do serious electrical damage if you jump the battery while it is in the vehicle. Do not do that.

I would suggest you buy an interstate MTP-91, adjust the mounting bracket (takes a little work), and mount the battery snugly.

Then get a Deltran or Interstate battery tender and connect it to an electrical snap-on fitting behind the driver's seat.

When not in use keep the tender attached via the snap-on fitting.

You will never have another problem,a nd the car will spin over like a rocket ship.

If you need details I can provide those.

Gcalo - a dying battery is like a ticking time bomb, and would really like to diffuse it before it happens. Would appreciate your advice on how to install the extensions and can it be connected to a standalone charger (ie one that does not need to be plugged into an electric socket?:ears:

Car batteries have about a 4 year life-heat and vibration are killers.

A tender cannot make a dying battery well.

So if your battery is more than 4 years change it out first, and then add a tender.

I did on another thread post photos as to where the tender connections should be.

I don't remember the link,
