there are technical service bulletins for this...meaning they are obligated to repair this~ http://www.mercuryproblems.com/tsbs/Villager/1998/


the battery should be NEW...undervoltages may have caused your problem...a tin/antimony battery such as yours will stop accepting a charge 10 percent per year (by Car battery guru Qureshi)~
