How do you know it's good? Unless you've had a load test done on it, it could be bad. Sometimes a cell is bad in the battery. You can jump start it, and will run fine until you cut it off. I'd also run a amp check on your alternator. Your alter. may not be producing enough amps. Anything below 13 amps, could be the problem. Or a loose belt. Check everything throughly before buying another battery.

FROM LUSTYKID:

Ensure fuse link in system is not burned out first.

Check ignition switch circuit, ensure the ignition switch works, if good then you need to check starter solenoid to make sure it works. If solenoid is not the type above the starter (Fords have it separate) change solenoid, If its with the starter, change starter.

If you hear a click when you turn to start, and no turn over,,,change the starter.

My 86 toyota pickup keeps draining my battery when i turn the key over, have good altenator,battery, fuses are good and have good grounds


Your battery has a few dead cells, replace the battery. A good battery should crank your engine for a while before it goes dead.

Can a battery read 12volts when engine doesn't start and if lights get turned on voltage drops to 3 volts does this mean the battery is no good


Your battery is definately suspect.Give it a good charge and check it again. If it drops like that when you turn on the lights replace it.A fully charged battery in good condition will read about 14.2V when fully charged. When you turn the key to start it will drop to about 11 and come back up when you turn the key off.

How do I get truck started after its been sitting for months


Charge up the battery with a battery charger or jump start the truck with a good battery. Connect the jumper leads from the good battery to the battery on the truck.
Connect the red lead from the + terminal on the good battery to the + (plus) terminal on the truck.
Connect the black lead from the - terminal on the good battery to the - (minus) terminal on the truck.
The good battery will supply power to the starter motor.
Then you can turn the key to start the truck.

Turn key will not start battery is good


Make sure the connections and the cables are good.No corrosion on cables.If the lights in the dash flicker this is usually a sign that the battery is not good or it is not making good contact.Have the charging system and battery load tested.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Hi,

Upon turning key loud clicking under hood, no turn over


The clicking you hear usually indicates a poor battery or battery connection. Have your battery load tested first. You may have a bad cell in it causing it to be weak enough not to be able to supply the amps needed to turn the starter. If you haven't had the battery load tested then it could be bad. My guess is that the battery is bad. Good luck.
