But...... It's FFRR related, I know some of you guys are in the know so I just wondered if you could help me out.

After having the Land Rover assist guy out he failed to diagnose any issues.

However he did change the battery as he was sure it was goosed, long story short, he had several about 6 in total on the van in a tray, the one he had taken off had a red X on the top and some gaffa tape on it. Written on the gaffa tape again in red from a China graph pencil was the word Slave.

Question is ?
What does it mean, why was it on this car ?

My instinct tells me it's been taken out of something? Putting the good battery from this veh into something that's had a knackered one and bobbing the knackered one on this ?

Is it LR policy to daub a red X on a defunct battery ? It would make sense,
And which the word Slave it would appear that it's been used to help boost something.

Any info greatly appreciated as its playing on my mind, I'm quizzed by it.

Can't help, never been in this situation. Does seem odd though.

Sound to me like the original battery was completely broken somehow and it got swapped for the one someone was using to jump start vehicles with flat battery's.
Presumably they then had to find another battery to use as a slave.

Just a guess.
