One cell does not look like all the others.

I'm not sure you'll be able to see the images.
The top 2 pictures are of the bad cell,
and 2 good cells are on the bottom.

The bad cell was covered with fluid,
and it hasn't been very cold here yet.

At first I thought that it went dead,
and froze. But if that's the case,
why were not all the cells damaged or bad?

So, anyway, if anyone has some words on this,
please proceed.

Thanks.

You can see the visual evidence that the bad cell is heavily sulfated.
Why this did not happen relatively evenly inside this battery I'm not sure.

Most batteries die from a bad cell. 6 cells X 2 volts each = 12 volts
When one cell goes bad you have a 10 volt battery. Then it's only a matter of time until it gives up the ghost 👻. lol
Put in a new one and move on.

Does anyone know if some sort of foreign substance would
cause this sulfate build up?

It wouldn't surprise me if someone tampered with it.
How old is the battery and was it used year round or sit over the winter?
