It would be best to slow charge the Battery. You do not want to overwork the Alternator and burn it out. Modern alternators are meant to rebuild a moderately discharged battery or supply on demand energy.

For a deeply compromised battery, the Alternator would have to run the current system demand AND recharge the battery.

Please rate my info.

Dead battery problems-


Unless the battery charger is a high power over 12amp hours charge rate you should be looking at 12-18 hrs minimum as the battery is a 78Ah unit for the 2 litre you may get of with 6 hrs but that may give 3-4 start attempts before recharge required

I have a 2006 x5 4.8, my battery kept running dead and and most of the warning light would come on. I changed the battery, i left the country for a month and put the car int the garage on a trickel...


also the batery in the vehicle has to be registered to the car. this means you have to go to the dealer to register it. it requires this because the car learns the charging charactreristics of the battery and charges it accordingly. if not registered, the battery will either under charge or overcharge.

I have a Dodge Avenger 2008 with a dead battery and the vehicle is in a one car garage. I can't shift the car to neutral to push it out of the garage and jump start it. How do I get the vehicle into...


If the battery is dead,it is a dangerous practice
to jump start it,not recommended I should say

If you can charge it, or take it out and replace it, that
is your best bet.

Someone on your street will have a charger
you can use

I got a new battery, its been in it for a month or so. Now its dead and when I jump it off it starts then I turn the headlights and it dies and the battery is dead again.


In computer controled cars the computer needs at least 10 volts to operate . If your car is not charging or not carging enough The voltage is low to start with when you boost it. Then you turn on the lights it drops the voltage more to where the computer can't opperate. The batery should be charged before you start it anyway because it is really hard on the altinater to recharge a dead batery. An altinater is only meant to keep a batery topped up , its not a cahrger.

It wont crank like not getting power


ok sounds like you have a dead battery
1) if turns but slowly:

posible causes:
1.1) old dead batery/
or underchaged battery >check altenator in this case

did you leave your headlights turnt on and drained the battery of its charge?if so get a jump start and then run the car for 30-45 mins to rechagre the battery

if you have at your disposal anothere batery that you know has a good charge
try starting your car with that batery(not using jumper cables) hook it up!
if the slugish turn over is still there

1.2) check your wire conections for corision this means completly disconecting 1 lead at a time (only on one end of that lead)and cleaning them with a wire brush or some sand paper.
(on the battery and the starter also the ground strap conection to the frame.)

2) WONT TURN OVER AT ALL:
posible causes:
2.0) dead battery >try charging it>get a jump start
2.1) blown turnkey igntion fuse
2.2) blow fuse for main har nes wires
2.3) bad starter
2.4) corosion on wire conection (most often the batery terminals)
2.5) starter replaced and hooked up incorectly.

2.6) alram system preventing the turnkey igntion system from getting power

Our batery gauge jumped back and forth an nowe batery si dead will start with jump.alt si only 10 mounths old.could it be anneything els?


alternator's go bad - even some new ones are no good - prolly a rebuilt one gone bad - test it -- charge the battery - - then drive it in the day time to the local advance or auto zone - they will test ur charging system - also - take down the vin number and ask the local dealer if there have been any recalls or service bulletins - on ur car -

Needs a jump to start the car, but when i take it for a ride it will lose power for a few seconds, then we would park it and the radio light will stay on and the battery would go dead.


While the car is running take off one of the battery cables if the car dies You need to get a new alternater The car runs on the juice from the jump... You probably can't drive far without it going dead
