98 izzu hombre 4.3 battery went dead after a jump it wont start how to fix


The jump start may have blown you alternator or voltage regulator. If so, you have an inactive charging system. You must have a good battery for this to work, Disconnect the positive cable to the battery. Use a battery charger to slow charge your battery. When the battery is fully charged, reattach the positive cable and try to start your engine. If it starts take the truck to a shop or auto zone to have the charging system checked. Fix what is needed.
Any time a vehicle is jump started, do so with the hot battery car not running and its ignition off. If it is running and your car starts one or both charging systems are usually damaged. There may not be damage if it is GM to GM or Ford to Ford, etc., but to be safe, do not let both cars run at the same time when connected.

Car will not start without a jump and there is a smell of sulfur coming from front of car.


Julia
The car will not start because your battery is now faulty. The bad smell from the front of the car is the battery overheating. Being able to jump start the car off another battery is indicative of a bad battery in this case..

The battery is emitting hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas and you will also find corrosion on your battery terminals.

When the battery is replaced , as it now must be, it is very important to to check the entire charging system on the vehicle.

Your alternator or voltage regulator may be faulty and it is important to ensure the charging system will not start over charging the new battery once it is fully charged.

Car wont start need help no power when when try to start


Will it start with a jump from another car or booster? You may just have a dead battery, or a bad alternator that isn't charging your battery. Usually it is one of the two. The battery doesn't hold a charge so it is junk. or the alternator/generator is bad and not charging the battery. Easy way to check alternator is, If the car will start with a jump? while it is running pull positive terminal off battery. If the car stays running it is the most likely the battery is not keeping a charge. On the other hand; if the car stops running when you pull the terminal off the alternator isn't providing enough electricity to charge the battery or run the car.

There is also the possibility nothing is wrong and you left the interior lights on all night.

Self start problem


Your starting problem may be battery charge level. Take buy a auto parts store, most will measure the battery charge condition and may recommend a new battery, They will also measure the status of the charging system, which if not adequate, will contribute to the poor battery charge and starting problem. If the battery condition is good or very good, you may have a Starter solenoid or starter and solenoid problem.

Car won't start


Have the charging system checked out .
Have the battery load tested first.
If you want to do this testing yourself its pretty easy.
a) need a fully charged battery (charge battery 3min charge)
b) you need special equiptment to do a load test so the next best thing is open circuit test. Use a DVM
and hook it up to battery you should have min. of 12 volts. if not charge battery or replace it.
c) Leave DVM on battery start car and measure voltage with all accessories on and off should be between 13.5 and 14.5 volts.
If this is ok you know the alternator is charging that battery .
If you don't get 13.5 to 14.5 turn off vehicle and start looking at battery cables and wires behind the alternator for corrosion.
If cables are good and wires behind alternator are good then replace alternator.

Won't start


Probability high:

Inverter drained your battery.

A "jump" was sufficient to start the vehicle.

After leaving the vehicle for X amount of time, you found it did not start ....because...............

A: potentially low electrolyte (fluid) in the battery which can cause various charging issues [including plate damage].
B: Did not drive long enough to charge the battery to a fundamental and useful state (low batteries take a longer time to charge).
C: bad battery plate

While you are at it, make sure you have no corrosion on the battery terminals; this dampens the effort of charging.

Should you have a meter, you can check the following;
battery voltage = 12VDC [car not running, ignition acc off]
battery charge voltage = 14.8 VDC [usually 120% of battery value] AND car running. This determines that your alternator is supplying the proper V.

Easiest thing to do; charge it over night with an external charging system. Also, you can drive your vehicle to many auto part stores and they will come out and troubleshoot the battery/charging system via an analyzer. This will tell you if your battery is sufficient or needs to be replaced.
