How do I set the settings on my NAPA automatic starter/charger 85-435 to charge my car battery or to try to quick start my car? I have a 1997 VW Cabriolet.


It is best to "trickle charge" a low/dead car battery using the lowest setting. The "jump start" function will probably not have enough juice to start your car by itself. Refer to the manual of your charger for safety precautions.

My 2001 Mercury sable will not start and when I tried to jump start still wont start but alarm goes off and windshield wipers go haywire could it be the starter?


It could be the starter, but i would start with having your battery load tested. Sounds like that is the problem. I hope this helps.

W96 toyota previa wont start just clicks and alarm goes off


Hi there Carolina,

The battery is very low. That clicking sound is the solenoid trying to complete the circuit that brings power to the starter.

When the starter gets the power there is not enough left for the solenoid to keep the circuit maintained and it switches off.

When it switches off, the starter is no longer drawing power so there is enough power for the solenoid.

The cycle repeats causing the rapid clicks.

The alarm goes off because of the power getting so low, it resets on the side of caution.

Get a jump. That will start the car. But don't trust it to restart until you find out if it's the battery not holding a charge or the alternator not recharging the battery.

Bring it to an auto parts store. Most will run a 'Load Test' for free. This simulates the load of a starter turning an engine. It take 5 seconds and the results are pass or fail.

And if it doesn't start, what better place than a auto parts store?

My money is on the battery

Best regards
Mike

Just leave the car battery charge up and then unhook the battery cabbles.........It should get enough charge in about 15 min to start without assiestance from jump start,...........Hope this helps.

Mercedes vito 110cdi starter motor problems. only when the van


Hi as it starts with a jump start, i would rule out a starter motor problem, i am taking it that what you mean by a jump start is your using a donor battery rather than pushing the van, so possible causes are (1) battery discharging due to a light left on, or the alarm system draining the battery or something similar, (2) alternator not charging the Battery, when you turn the ignition key does the ignition light come on, does it go off when the engine starts?

My voyager wont start it seems the alarm has stuck on , when i turn key nothing new battery fitted ,led light for alarm does not flash anymore /gear/milage lights do not come on ,i have taken battery off...


This may sound a bit simple but check the starter solenoid function by running an external wire to the thin wire terminal from the positive post on the battery.

If the starter does nothing then the starter is bad.

What your describing is a typical solenoid / starter problem. Given the car is now 10 year old, it is quite possible that either the solenoid or starter has failed.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Do the dash lights come on when you turn the key? Do the headlights and interior lights work?
