dead battery

Just went thru the same problem with my C230. Had the battery checked be 2 different places both told me it was ok. Went to my local parts guy and he told me the only wat to really check the battery was under heavy load. A lot of the testers don't put the battery under enough load. Went to my mechanic and he tested the battery and 1 cell was dead. New battery and zero problems. Original battery was 6 years old
