Your experience with your Y2K model may or may not apply to the 2011 and up.


I too, have a Y2K, and found that the issue with the passenger side battery becoming depleted more than the driver's side was simply due to the resistance of the paralleling cable. I decreased that resistance by adding a second paralleling cable linking battery to battery, then adding two (fused) cables from the alternator B+ post, one directly to each battery, which when considered together, provided a third paralleling leg linking the batteries, reducing the resistance between the driver's side battery and the starter and glow plug loads.


Finally, and perhaps most importantly, I upgraded the ground cable connections from both batteries to the block. Hence, my batteries "wear" and charge evenly, and have lasted 10 years so far.

I replaced my batteries yesterday. Found nice Interstate ones at Costco and decent price. 850cca and 94 bucks. The ones that were in there were stock and 4.5 yrs old. Not bad for Michigan and the weather we get.

All this talk about batteries. Mine gave up the ghost two days ago. 2013 with batteries being 5 1/2 years old. Went with MotorCraft 850 CCA from O'Rilley auto parts. $155 each with 3yr warranty/100 month pro-rated exchange.

A little knuckle skin given during the installation. Both inner hold down posts kept falling down into the abyss when arranging the batteries for securing.

Nothing wrong with those Motorcraft batteries. Great warranty nationwide.

Does O’Reilly sometimes offer discounts or incentives like Advance Auto? Any way to bring the price down further?
