I've been delaying buying a battery only because I'm burning oil and have a loss of power in the engine. I want to make sure I can fix the gas engine before I invest into a battery. I plan on replacing the valve seals on my own to see if that'll fix it, but I need to get warm outside first.
Yours isn't dead, it's crippled. P1433 is "below 10% of original 6.5Ah capacity" or in other words, weak but balanced.
Your battery is extremely susceptible to becoming unbalanced because the difference between full and empty is such a small amount of power.
At some point it will turn into a P1449 overheat and shut down the entire IMA system.
What's worse than a dead battery? How about no 12V charging?
