Change Car Battery – Vin Battery Suppliers

On 21 Jul 2015, my battery was dead… It was happened when I finished my work and planning went to prayer meeting. It just “tak tak tak”, can’t start @@

I manage to contact my previous battery suppliers – Vin Battery Suppliers which is a young nice guy!

The only problem on that day was Raya Monday Vin Battery said that a lot of their staff was on leave. So only part-time worker to do the work, so there was a big delay. It took about 1 hour++ for the whole process.

About 7:15PM – Make order and confirmed via Whatsapp. I ordered Century Maintain Battery (Water Battery)

7:45PM – Part Time worker called and only depart from Old Klang Road.

8:22PM – Reached Subang Jaya to replace my battery.

Mystery about Big car cannot jump start small car battery

I manage to contact one of my church friend to help to jump start my car. His car is Toyota Camry 2.2L. My car is Saga BLM 1.3L. We tried to jump start but no successful. I was so worried that was not battery issue but starter issue… Thanks God that once the battery was replaced it was able to start the car.

According to the part-time worker explanation. He said only 2 possibilities.

1. The connection between 2 cars did not connect correctly.

2. Big car’s battery cannot jump start small’s car battery. This was the first time both of us heard about this theory. But I searched online did not found any information regarding this. Anyone expert in this area maybe can reply on this post.

Proton Saga BLM Main Power Window Switch Fixed PW855376

Final post for the year end! Solution for your if you having proton saga classic problem.. LOL.. I can’t push my windows down, the button is not working…zzz…

Last 2 days finally my Saga BLM 2008 version is having Proton Classic Problem which is Power Windows Malfunction. Thank God it is just a button or switch issue, the motor everything is fine. The part number is called PW855376.

This was taken when I switched the button. (My baby daughter was cheering me up:) Just kidding…)

My car already 5 years and problem starting come one by one. I went to Online check about this part PW855376 cost about RM52.72 (Source: http://www.scribd.com/doc/238615010/130233996-Saga-BLM-1-3-asdB-Line-a-Spare-Parts-Price-List#scribd)

Dunno why I got the boldness to have a try to open it up and fix it myself. If it just a button issue, I may just switch between the button, because driver side window button is important for me to use for Touch n Go, Pay Tol, Parking, and etc.. So just one screw to open up.

The cover is so so so hard to open it. I not sure why it is so tight… I was tried to open it using about 20 minutes until reached the following step. I am not a electronic engineer, but I can see this is a very simple board and does not feel like it worth for RM52++ … Let me know what you think about this..

The top part cover is opened then you can see the board show up there...I was try to see anything stick on the board, it is so hard to open it up...

Tear Down Time…

I brought the whole part to home and starting the tear down project. In order for me to switch the two buttons, I have to take out three parts.

1. Bottom Cover – Which is the easiest part

2. The Electronic Board, The upper disable passenger mirror button need to remove out first. But it came out when I take out the electronic board.

3. The casing stick between handle.

I was taking so long to remove the cover.. I don’t why it fixed so tight… Even I broke the plastic still took me a lot of effort to remove it.

Before remove out the parts.. You can see the side cover still look good...
