Replaced Battery and now have a delay when starting the car
I took the battery back to the dealership where I bought the car and they gave me a new battery manufactured in 09/2015, according to the sticker on the side of the battery. This battery actually has 700 cold cranking amps. So my question is that now I have put the new battery in the car, when I turn the key nothing happens for 30 to 60 seconds and then all the dashboard lights pop on. I don't think there is supposed to be a delay but I'm not sure what the problem could be at this point. Do I need to run the car for awhile with the new battery in it?
Sounds like a loose conection, recheck that the battery cables are clean on the inside as well os the outside and tight
