Are you saying the voltage at the battery posts is 9 or 10 volts with the cables removed ?
Have you charged the battery with a charger ?

Crankshaft sensor - 97 Suzuki Swift. Need location.


can you afford a 10 buck walfart meter? DMM volt meter
the battery terms clean
fuses checked
starter dead, no jumper cables for a old car, its like first buy tool if ever there ways. huh>
so you cant jumper cable start car.
so we measure battery voltage cranking
11v good, hear clank, bad starter,
12.6v no clank is dead starter or dead keyline
hot wire key line, it cranks means key line DEAD.
try to crank in neutral? yet< A/t trans, this uses new switch contacts, wow it starts.?
lower than 10 v cranking is weak battery, no jumper cables, oops;.
or shorted starter, or seized engine, can you turn engine by hand.

my guess, is all this is too hard.
it takes tools to fix cars, some or are dirt cheap today.
unlike say in 1970 .... you in the good times.

I need start my car with jumper cables. i can drive 50 miles i soon as i turn the car off i need another jump what could be causing this please help


That is evidence that your alternator is working perfectly. An aging battery (or one that has previously been dead) starts to have a high internal resistance. At this point it has trouble holding the correct voltage... has a lower amp/hours, and fails in cold weather. Clean the battery connections well, clean the battery posts well... but chances are you have to get a new battery. When you do get a voltage regulator as well... never replace the battery without replacing the voltage regulator.

Find why voltage is low to startet To a toyota tundra95


Could be a # of things. First is the battery up to doing the job? If you have a voltage meter test to make sure you have close to 12V across the battery then turn on headlights voltage should not drop more than about 1 volt. If so battery most likely is OK. Dirty battery cables will be the next thing to look for. Are the terminals clean & corrosion free at the battery? If you have found no problem so far your starter may need to be replaced. Do you have the ability to use jumper cables & jumper it from another battery?
If you can jump start it or put a battery charger on it & git it started again you can test voltage across the battery. with car running you should have about 14V if 12.5V or less you need a new alternator.

One problem at a time please. Let's get the engine running All the time! First, it seems that the battery is weak, perhaps old and past its prime (thus the jumper cables worked). Or, maybe you just need to clean off the battery terminals on the battery and the connecting cables. When did you replace the plugs, wiring harness, distributor cap and rotor last? Perhaps just cleaning them up will do the trick. Also, check that the grounding cables all over the engine compartment are clean and tight.

The engine does not turn over. no lights. can not get out of park. the door key does not work. battery tested good. negitive on battery very hot


Sounds like you have a serious short to ground. First, disconnect the battery, then start with the positive cable, follow it until you reach the starter, checking for any breaks in the insulation or bare wire. Make sure the negative cable is clean and tight where it connects to the frame. It shouldnt be too hard to find, as it sounds like a major short. If in doubt, or if you dont see anything obvious, I would highly recommend taking it to a good shop and letting a professional handle it.

Every month or so it wont start, is slow starting most of the time.This morning tried jumping it and would turn over but not start, without the jumper cables on it just clicks


JUST CLICKING, MEANS LOW VOLTAGE AT THE STARTER. JUMPER CABLES ARE TRICKY.
IF THE WIRES INSIDE ARE TO SMALL, NO GOOD. JUMPER CABLES NEED TO HAVE STRONG CLAMPS & SHOULD BE MADE WITH AT LEAST # 4 BATTERY CABLE, ANYTHING SMALLER WON'T CARRY ENOUGH AMPS TO DO THE JOB. THE OTHER CAR NEEDS TO BE RUNNING AT HIGH IDLE {2000 RPM }. WAIT 5 MINUTES THEN TRY TO START THE LOW BATTERY CAR.

I cant seem to locate the fuse block for my 1987


Try turning on your hazard/warning flashers. The DOT 3 fuses are usually right next to each other. Follow the clicking sound.

I replaced the battery 3 weeks ago and everything has been fine. My wife drove around everywhere on Friday. She did not drive the van yesterday. It is now Sunday night. My wife went out ot start her van...


Your alternator is going bad. It should only put out 13-14 volts and therefore is overcharging your battery. This causes your battery to get a dead cell. If you replace the alternator and battery, make sure you check the cables for any shorts.
