Check for power at the igntion wire at the starter while someone turns the key into the start position, if no power is recieved at the wire check it for brakes, if all is good with the wire change ignition switch, have had this problem on hondas as well.

What would cause the battery gauge on a 93 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo to bounce between 14v and 9v. this is also running the battery dead and not charging the battery back up.


Several things need to be checked before an accurate diagnosis can be made, however in general it is most likely your alternator going out OR a bad connection in your alternator/charging circuit wiring.

It's also important to test/verify that you have a good fully charged battery (with no dead cells) before any tests of the charging system. An alternator needs ample battery power into it before it can produce good charging voltage and amps out of it and back into the battery.

If you test the voltage directly out of the alternator's output post/connector (with the output wire disconnected), you will be reading direct alternator voltage output, which should be approx 13.5 to 14 volts, steady. If the voltage is at ~14 volts, then suddenly cycles down to 9 volts (or anything less than 12 volts), then you have a defective alternator.
If the alternator, while isolated, tests out at a constant 13.5 to 14 volts, then the problem is most likely a bad wire or connection in the charging circuit wiring.

There is also the possibility of the battery (how old is it?) shorting out internally, causing the voltage fluctuation. That's why I previously said you need to verify each battery cell is fully charged and good. You can usually test this with a battery hydrometer (if it's not a "sealed" maintenance free battery).

Tip

Automobile battery and charging system



Most automobile batteries are lead acid which should have a standing voltage of about 12.6V fully charged at 70 degrees F. To test a battery first it must be fully charged. If fully charged a good battery will stay above 9.5V while cranking engine. Most part stores will charge and test batteries, starters and alternators. To be sure your alternator is properly charging start the engine and turn on the headlights and blower fan to add electrical load. Voltage should be over 13.2V at idle and under 15V with a known good battery. If not check the larger wire bolted to the back of the alternator for loose connection and continuity to the battery. If ok check fuses. If all are present and check good most likely the alternator is bad and needs replacement, although it is possible on many modern automobiles to have a powertrain control module (PCM) be the problem as they serve as the voltage regulator. Most late 90s and newer GM and Chrysler do. If all else fails have a professional check it to be sure. Hopefully this will answer the questions of many. Good luck ??.

I tried to jump a friends car,it didnt start so we got a new battery.on the way to get her battery my ac wasnt blowing right then battery light cam on.after fixing friends car got in my olds and it ...


clean and tighten all your battery connections and fully charge it,, when you get it charged , have it LOAD tested, you may have a dead cell in it, once you know you have a good , fully charged battery ,, test the battery posts with a meter,, you should get a reading of 13.5 to 14.5 volts, if not, your alternator isn't charging correctly,, ( note,, use extreme care when jumping another car, a single back feed into your car could fry the computer,,

We have a new battery but the starter will not engage unless it has a booster charge on the battery


I guess what you are saying is that your starter requires more amperage than your battery can provide, even if fully charged. Either your battery is inadequate or there is a problem with your starter. Before replacing the starter I would remove the battery cables and give both ends of both cables a good scour and then reconnect them to make sure you have a good electrical connection. On a car that old you could have a weak connection due to corrosion buildup.

I own a 91 Mercury ( ford) Capri convertible. I went to start it and it turned for a second then died. All power to the car died instantly. There is no lights no radio no lighter no instrument light no...


Has to be a cable connection issue of some sort. Check the other end of the battery cables, either the ground connection to the chassis, or power connection to the under hood fuse box. Could be that one of the battery cables has broken inside the insulation yet the connector looks good. Try using a cheap ohm-meter to see if there is a break in either cable ...keep looking!

Car will not start, battery tested good, will jump very easy. loud clicking noise when trying to start. what is wrong


Clean and tighten battery terminals--you are not getting a good connection or the battery is low. (when you say it tested good, did they say it was fully charged or just good? May need to be charged.) You may want to view my battery tips at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5925550-dead_battery_troubleshooting

Car not starting battery is good and car does make sound when trying to start, what else couild it be and how can i fix itr without taking it to a mechanic


Most often the issue is with poor electrical connections. Make sure the connections to the battery are tight.

Next, check the connections of the heavy black and red wires going to the engine and starter.

Also, how do you know the battery is good? A "good" battery still may not be fully charged - causing the symptoms described here.

I have a toyota corolla and battery is fully charged no power


Sounds like a bad connection with one of the battery cables check the connection to both cables at both ends and I personally would make sure that i cleaned the main engine ground (where the negative wire from battery connects to engine). Good luck!

My 1996 cadillac eldorado says battery no charge now hard to turn but it cranks right up


Most likely you need a new battery but do this first. Remove the battery ground connection and the positive connection. Clean them with soda water(coke is sticky but all sodas will work). Scrape or sand the inside of the cable connectors and the outside of the battery posts till they are shiny. A low battery light usually means it is not fully charged or taking a charge optimally but effective troubleshooting the battery and starting system starts with clean,secure connections and a fully charged battery. If your battery has electrolyte filling caps undo them and check the level. If they need topping off use distilled water only. Charge the battery with a car battery charger. It should read about 13.4 Volts under no load. Check and clean the battery negative cable connection to the block and the positive connection to the starter solenoid. Check for good connections to the charging output from the alternator. Inspect all wires for kinks, cracking, shorts, ect. A good once over will reveal probem wiring. Reinstall the battery and cables. Giv'er a crank and see if that is not stronger. Drive it for an hour or so and crank it again. Any noticable degradation in cranking power means you have a bad battery, alternator, diode pack if applicable, voltage reguator, or any combination of the three. Take your alternator and battery to your auto parts dealer. They will usually test them for free. Aslo, starters can wear after time but this is most likely not your problem based on the symptoms.
