    How old is the battery?

    Just replaced the battery in the 2007 C4. Looking back on it (it is my wife's car and I rarely drive it) there was about a month of slightly hesitant starting after which the car would run without problems and restart after a short trip without hesitation. Then one morning it was suddenly "as dead as".

    Citroen assist restarted the C4, everything was operating without a problem, battery was showing charge. Stopped the engine and it would not kick over.

    New battery on the 14th, running like a dream.
