F03 - Sulfate or Unchargeable Battery

Appears when the battery is highly sulfated and cannot accept normal charge current.

• Follow the steps in "Recondition Mode" to recondition the battery.

• Follow the steps in "Equalizing" to equalize the battery.

• If the situation persists after reconditioning and equalizing, we recommend taking your battery to a certified automotive service center for evaluation

My 98 blazer acts like the battery is dead but when i hooked it to a battery charger it said it was full and running at 9.1 when it should be running at around 12 then said error f03. so what does that...


It means the battery charger is your problem. Find an old-style simple battery charger, not one of these new "smart" chargers. The simple ones allowed YOU to decide whether to charge or not. Placed more responsibility on you, but a simple charger would WORK for your battery.

At 9.1V, your battery's DEAD.

Vec 1097 A battery charger always give cod F03 with any battery


The battery in question so bad it wouldn't even register on the charger unit to any degree. I know this makes no sense, and kinda negates the whole point of even having a battery charger to begin with, but I learned of the battery it's attached to is too bad it won't even allow you to do ANYTHING with it.

F03 means 1 of 2 things:
INTERNAL OPEN CELL - Bad battery. Battery needs to be replaced or
SULFATED CONDITION - Battery needs to be reconditioned for 24 to 48 hours. See owner's manual.

What does F03 mean


F03 is an error code with two possible meanings.

1) battery plates are sulfated, meaning they have a buildup of lead sulfate on the battery plates. Try charging the battery using the "Recondition" button on your charger. If this does not correct the problem then it may be option 2:

2) Open cell in battery. Have battery tested at an auto parts store and be ready to buy a new battery. An open cell means the battery is no longer usable.
