By the way, do you measure under hood temperature?
My second gen is struggling with its second 12 V battery, maybe my grill blocking has contributed to the problem, as the under hood temperature got high and batteries don't like temperatures over 40C/105F.

Also, don't get under your car with just the jack holding it up. My jack failed while I was swapping wheels. It just suddenly started to drop. So I use a pile of wood blocks for double support.
