    Last time I changef battery and disconnected the old one, no computer reset issues. The truck was totally dead; key fob, didn't work, no dash lights, no nothing. It was an AC delco professional. Wasn't impressed. Bought a Sam's Duracell two years ago, I am taking it to sams today to have them test it. Seems to crank slower after sitting in garage overnight I work for Advance Auto Parts, tested it, and our tester said ig only had 440 amps. Some corrosion

    I wanna say my 06 Tacoma Prerunner is currently running at 14 amps and about 600? Something crank amps it's a ever start brand from Walmart and doing a great job so far so I'd say make sure battery acid levels are topped off bc the chemical reaction needed in battery needs to be happening properly have your battery charged for a good 3 to 4 hours you need way more juice in that battery if not replace it hope this helps you did not specify any specific question also check alterantor make sure that's charging

    Well My old battery was a Duracell 24F. Since I am no longer a Sams club member, they wouldn't even test it. I tested it, just wanted second opinion. Cleaned both terminals to bare metal. Cleaned Post also. I applied dialelectric grease. The fluid was good. Re-tested and got 700 cca's. I am happy
