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!

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

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.

Im wondering if i can put a 80 amp 14v alternator for replacement on my 03 kia spectra 1.8l bottom base model which came stock with 80amp 12v can i up the voltage without hurting the car


Your alternator output normally should fall around 14 volts to deliver a charge to your car battery. Car batteries can easily adapt to 2V, 10V and 50V from a battery charger and likewise an upgrade from 12V to 14V output would not hurt anything.

Battery in Jeep Grand Cherokee dead this am and less than 1 year old. I have a Everstart 100 battery charger plugged in and on the car. How long does it take to charge the battery. The charger is plugged...


How many amps does this charger put out????
A small trickle charger will take forever to fully recharge a dead battery, you'll need to have a battery charger that can put out enough amps to properly charge a dead battery.To clarify, the chargers sold at Sears, the large square types on wheels are the best for charging dead batteries and they also have an amp meter telling you how much the battery is accepting. After you charge your battery, you should be around 12.5 volts to 12.7 volts. DO NOT OVER CHARGE!!!
