A battery with a dead cell will not charge. Remove battery, take to Auto Zone get it checked. If battery is dead, replace with the best and biggest CCA available. Only cost $1.00 to go first class.

Some batteries has been stored for a long time and uncharged and even the aren't been used they are dead, try an other new battery. the one you have is probably dead. sorry.


Batteries that have been left in an uncharged state will sulfate the plates and render them useless. Only by removal of the sulfate will they be useful again. This is a
very expensive process only accomplished commercially.
Replace battery and keep it fully charged to prevent sulfation. This can be done using a battery maintainer not
to be confused with a trickle charger. Maintainer only charges battery when needed not all the time like a trickle
charger. A trickle charger will also cause a battery to become dry which also damages the cells.

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.

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.

Battery goes dead instantly


TAKE BATTERY TO AUTO PARTS STORE FOR A LOAD TEST PROCEDURE, MAKE SURE THE CASE IT IS PUT IN HAS THE DOOR CLOSED FOR YOUR SAFETY, BATTERIES SOMETIMES DO "EXPLODE" AND ACID FLYING IS NOT GOOD. IF BATTERY IS NOT GOOD, I WILL SUGGEST YOUR BUY AN AMPHOROUS SOLAR POWERED BATTERY CHARGING PANEL, THEY COST BOUT 30 BUCKS AND WILL KEEP YOUR BATTERY CHARGED UP OVER LONG PERIODS OF TIME.

I believe i have a weak battery on my car when i tried starting the car after it had sat a month it was dead. I boosted it and it started and run fine. I bought a trickle charger and put it on the battery....


The charger shouldn't have hurt the battery but corrosion is caused by fumes from the battery being charged or used. If you know the cable ends are clear, the battery probably has a dead cell and will need replaced. Most parts stores will do a load test on the battery for free.

Battery drains if parked for a couple of weeks, sometimes more.Alternator is charging, last time I went away, I disconnected the battery. Thanks, BWD


all vehicles use a certain amount of power nowadays, its the keep alive memories of the computors , radio for channels and clock etc, although this drain is minimum it will drain the battery over a period of time, just like a cell phone even if you are not using it it stays alive , either get a trickle charger of disconnect the batt , hope this helps

2007 Vue hybrid. 12-volt battery dead? No electric key opening, lights, starting, etc. Can I try to trickle charge it? We;ve been away a week, but it has been sitting in a garage above 50 degrees.


If the battery is completely dead a trickle charge won't do much. These are designed to keep a good battery good. You need a regular battery charger set to 10 amps for a couple hours then 2 amps overnight. Be aware that sometimes if your battery has been completely killed it may not work for long, that is your car will start but within a few days or hours it will leave you stranded. You'll know because it will drag when you try to start it. Sometimes you get lucky and it works great for years.

Next time do use a trickle charger! Also if the charge you use is automatic then you can leave it hooked up in 2 amp mode when you are gone. Good luck!

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!!!

your car will always have something being powered but its a trickle amount[computer-entry control[keyless entry]-radio memory-etc if ur going to let it sit for a month with battery connected yes your battery will more than likely be dead when u disconnect it ur also clearing all codes and memory in computer and components auto stores sell a trickle charger/maintain charge charger for long term storage there used for any type battery boats ,cars,atvs ,planes,etc the charger maintains the charge in a battery it goes on and off when needed

New Battery + Possible Parasitic Drain + Weird Problems


Many new batteries will come with bad cells from the factory. If you just purchased this, I would definately try returning it asap. As soon as you get the new one, immediately hook it up to the charger to see if you have the same results. I have heard of others who have gone through two bad (new) batteries before getting a good one.
