what will happen if i use a different battery type in my car?


Asked by Dec 02, 2014 at 05:29 PM about the 2002 Nissan Altima

Question type: General

I need a cheap battery that will get me home about an hour away. If I use a different battery type, will it work?

1 Answer


Shouldn't be any problem as long as it has enough cranking amps to turn the engine. Couple of my cars I use a bit larger battery because it still fits in the battery box.
