How do I hook up a battery charger on my 1999 Chrysler?

I have never had to put the battery on charge and I'm wondering if there is any danger if I simply hook the positive clip on the positive lug marked + and the negative anywhere on the block as is normally done.

That's the way to do it, remembering the "block" today has more and more plastic and other kinds of materials that are not "groundable".
Be sure to get "steel"!

SOURCE: charging system

If you have changed the alternator and regulator, about all that could be left would either be a short circuit that is draining current away, or a bad ignition warning light bulb. That is because the power to energize the field of the alternator, comes through this dash bulb.

SOURCE: how do i replace the battery on my 1999 volvo v40

No danger in electrocuting yourself. Just don;t let the wrench come in contact with the batter post and another piece of metal at the same time. The clip is at the lower left of the battery tray and slides left to right and grabs onto the lip of the battery. you'll also need the security code for your radio to reprogram it once your new battery is in. It should be written in your owners manual. If not you'll have to contact your local Volvo dealer with your VIN number. By the way most Auto Parts store will install a battery if you purchase it from them at no additional charge.

SOURCE: How do you hook up booster cables to the battery

Along with the solution provided above be sure to hook up the positive cable Red to the positive cable on the car to be jumped and the car used to jump the battery both cars off. Next on the car with the dead battery hook up the negative cable to the frame of the car if it is a liquid or lead acid battery, next hook up the negative cable to the car that will jump the other dead car. Warning an arc can cause an explosion if there is gas coming from either battery so when hooking up the negative cable be sure to clamp the negative cable on the frame. Next start the car and rev it to about 800 RPMs hold it to 800 RPMS for about 5 minute's before try starting the other car, this will allow the other battery to charge up and will help start the car. If you have small jumper cables like #6 copper give it about ten minutes to charge before try starting or you could damage the alternator of the charging car. once the time has elapsed try starting the other car, push throttle down once while cranking it over and hold pedal half way till it starts, do not crank for more than 30 seconds if it does not start wait for the battery to charge up again to try starting. with low voltage condition if you crank the car and it slows down it can damage the computer by drawing to much amperage caused by low voltage.

SOURCE: I have to describe how to hook up a battery

On the big fuse / relay box there should be a red plastic surronded terminal, may have a cap. This would be the positive terminal and the ground can be any metal on the engine, not the pulleys!

I have a 2007 es350 didn't run it for 3 weeks battery went dead i put a trickler on for 2 hours then jumped it everything came on pushed the start button and would not crank


One thing to take into consideration is the age of your battery. In several instances, the older the battery, the less cold cranking amps they have. A trickle charger is good for keeping a battery's voltage charged however that does not really tell you if your battery has a problem. Starters require a lot of amps to turn your engine over. If you have a regular battery charger, put the battery on charge and hopefully the amps will increase. If you get the vehicle started, take it to a battery shop and they can put it on a tester and tell you if you have sufficient cold cranking amps (CCA). They may have to do a full charge on the battery to get the CCA up. If you cannot get your vehicle started and can take it to a battery shop, they can tell you the same thing without it being hooked up to your vehicle. I hope this helps. Once your battery issue is resolved and you are not going to run a vehicle for quite some time, you can keep the vehicle hooked up to a trickle charger (a good one) and your vehicle should start up every time. Be sure to remove it before starting the vehicle or driving.

2005 chrysler 300 battery keep going dead


Try charging the battery with a small 10 amp battery charger with the negetive terminal removed, remove the charger and let set overnight. Hook the battery back up the next day and see if the car will start. If so, the alternator is bad. Drive to your nearest parts store and they can check the alternator to be sure it is bad. or just skip my first step and just go to the parts store, they will check the battery and alternator for free.

Can I use a trickler on my car battery without raking the battery out of car?


Just plug it into the wall only. Put charger on like 10 amps for like an hour. And yes batteries can give off a flammable gas. Just hook the charger up to the car first then plug it it

My alternator keeps going out


The voltage regulator isn't being turned on when it is need

The challenge it to look at wiring diagrams & see what controls it

Jumping a dead battery is a dangerous thing to do

Batteries require they be fully charged before being put
back into service- to continue any testing

If you even jump a car made in the last decade,
you may smoke the electronics

On newer cars you disconnect the battery, to charge
it alone from the vehicles systems

1999 bmw 323i wouldn't jumpstart


No danger involved, just useless. If ONE vehicle won't jump it, there's something drastically wrong with the engine. A charging system will only charge a max of 14 volts when charging a low or dead battery. Over that will hurt something. If you have two vehicles connected to your low battery, there's still only 14 volts going out from them and into yours. There is no reason why one jump vehicle won't charge and start your vehicle. Unless of course the jumped battery is really bad or has a bad/dirty connection. So clean your terminals before a jump. You may not need a jump.

10 amp draw draining battery overnight on 99 tahoe


I have done this before, put about a 10 amp charger on the battery. Pull the courtesy light fuse first. Look at the battery charger, it is probably charging several amps, pull one fuse at a time. When the charging amps drops down you found the fuse the controls the problem. I had a car several years ago that someone pulled the seat belt all the way out, somehow it was pulling a load and draining the battery overnight.
