Talked to dealer yesterday, and when he got the battery out, he found much more corrosion damage then what you could see. He isn't even going to try to save inner fender, has a new one orderd. I may not get my truck back untill the end of next week! He had to nuetralize the frame, seal it, and repaint, I guess it was a real mess! He said he has never seen a battery do so much damage in such a short period of time. Aren't I the lucky one? He is also replacing some bushings (I forget what he called them) that may have been ok, but they did have corrosion on them, so he is taking no chances.
Anyway, I had to cancel my dyno appointment, so the testing will be put off for a while anyway.

Hey, at least you found it NOW and not later!
That, along with the fact that not only did I not have to make a fuss to get it taken care of, they seem to be being overly cautious in fixing it. I will wait and let them fix it right, rather then pushing to get it back.

I believe BiXLL just got unlucky and got a Titan with a bad battery. From what he told me the battery acid or whatever had corroded the shelf the battery sits on and a lot of metal behind and under it. Looks like it was just eating it away from what I heard.

It was a defective battery. Split at bottom from one end to the other. Charge system has been checked with no problems found. Also, had it been charge system, battery would have been swelled, and it was not. Just luck :cry:
