SOURCE: 24 volt charging problems .2

A 12 volt battery is actually 13.2 volts fully charged. If you are reading 16 volts, you are probably getting extranious voltage from the system somewhere, especially if the vehicle is running when you check the voltage. The alternator will put out about 15-18 volts to charge the battery normally, and yours may put out 28-32 volts to charge them in series, but the batteries, when disconnected, should never read more than about 13.2 volts each. Typically, it will read about 12 1/2 volts when disconnected. COMPLETELY DISCONNECT BOTH OF THE BATTERIES. If you still read 16 volts when it is disconnected, you must have a bad meter because the battery can't produce that much voltage, no matter what. (Six 2.2 volt cells connected in series inside the case.) Put the meter on a known good battery on another car that is not running and see if you get the same reading. It sounds like the other battery is almost dead, regardless, and it sounds like your series/parallel switch may be malfunctioning. (That is the switch that puts the battery in series to run the 24 volt starter, then puts the batteries in parallel to run the remainder of the vehicle on 12 volts. This is all assuming that you have a diesel vehicle with a 24 volt starter and that is why you have two batteries.

SOURCE: motor will not crank. Battery good.

It could also be the VATS system faulty. The Theft Deterrent Module (TDM) also controls the starter relay, so if the TDM is faulty it could definitely be that your car is not cranking.

most likelt the electrical ignition switch located on the transmission is shot
Just take a volt meter to see if power gets to the solenoid wire. If not replace that switch

06 bug drains battery over night


On most 12v cars,the #1 cause is a light left on somewhere in the vehicle.#2 cause is a bad diode in the alternator and #3 is a bad battery which self discharges and is usually over 5 years old.
An easy first step is to disconnect the charged battery over night.If it still has a full charge the next morning,after you reconnect it and if the car starts,you can rule out the battery as the culprit.Now,if the battery passed the first test,now we go onto #2 test and disconnect the alternator output wire from the alternator overnight.If the battery still has a full charge the next day we will now know the alternator has a bad diode and will need to be repaired/replaced.If the battery was found to be low on charge the next morning with the alternator disconnected we will now have to go on to test #3 to find the drain in the vehicle. Disconnect the positive battery cable and place a 12v regular bulb type test light between the positive cable and the battery positive post.You should have a bright light on the test light if you have a drain in the vehicle from the battery.(don't worry about a dim light as electronics need a little memory voltage) We are looking only for a bright light.With the key off (as it would be overnight) you are now going to remove one fuse at a time while watching the brightness level of the test light.Take one fuse out, look at the light and if no change in brightness put the fuse back in and on to the next fuse,one by one until you see the light go out or dim.The fuse that dims or removes the bright test light will be the circuit that is draining your battery.Now you have your "battery drain" circuit identified and can inspect/repair the item/items on that circuit.
REMEMBER an open door,trunk or hood may cause a FALSE bright light on your test light because of courtesy light switches and alarm switches so manually close those switches if you need to keep one of the doors or hood/trunk open to gain access to the multiple fuse boxes in many vehicles.
DO NOT TURN ON THE KEY during this test, as all power to the vehicle is now going through the test light and things won't be happy if you do.

What are the possible reasons my 97 geo metro won't turn over after running the battery dead, then replacing it with a brand new battery ?


blown fuse.
bad wiring
forgot to charge new battery up to 12.6vdc reseted.
the head lamps work , keys in pocket (by law) and
are #1 first thing to trouble shoot when dead (easiest)
so, got 12v at all under hood fuses? ????????
id bet not. and any $10 voltmeter can find this easy.
buy one. use it. and save a bundle....

Locked Keyes in trunk of 91 Lexus


I don't know about back seat access, but you may have a feasible idea about the 12volts -maybe. Does your vehicle have a button on the dash to pop the trunk?? If so, that button works with the ignition switch in the 'on' position. Obviously you can't use the button since you can't turn the ignition to on. However, if you can get to the contacts of that button, you may be able to energize the trunk opener. Hopefully there are only two wires on that button switch, which will simplify matters. If you take a wire from the Positive battery terminal to the button switch, you may be able to energize the opener. If it's a two terminal switch, one side or terminal is power (12v) in, and the other terminal is 12v out. If you put 12v to one terminal and nothing happens, push the button. Can you pop the hood to get to the battery???? If not any 12v battery can work, lawn mower battery, etc. : Negative terminal of battery to car frame, positive to switch. This would be a low current draw, so the wire can be anything like speaker wire. Since the wire is live, just be careful not to have it touch any other bare wire connections or part of the frame, etc.If this works, it will probably set off the alarm, since the ignition switch is off. I really don't know if this will work, but if I was in this dilemma, I would try it. After all said and done, someone might be able to tell you how to access the trunk by way of the back seat. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!

I have a question. If yor mower want turn over all you hear when you turn the key is the volt meter click. There is fire from battery to solenoid but on the other side of solenoid going to the starter no...


Hello Lynn,

Sounds like you have a problem on the key controlled side, so:

1. Power from the battery to the key switch? 6V or 12V I would guess.
2. With the key in the "Start" position, have you got voltage to the thin wire/small terminal on the solenoid?
3. Do you have a good ground from the starter motor to the chassis?
If all the above checks out then the control circuit for the starter should all be working A-OK & when you turn the key to the "Start" position you should be getting a good, strong "Click" from the solenoid.

So - on the starter circuit:

1. The HD cable feeding the solenoid should always have battery voltage on it?
2. When you operate the key you should hear the solenoid "Click" and the voltage from the HD feed cable should now be connected to the other HD terminal on the solenoid (these are the two you are shorting out with your screw driver to get the motor to turn the engine over).
3. If the solenoid is "Clicking" when you operate the key & the voltage from the main supply cable is being passed to the second HD terminal, but the motor is not operating, then you need to check your ground cable.

Hopefully by now you will have found & fixed the problem :)

My 99 vette makes a click sound when I try to start it. It wont start but the battery has a full charge. The hood light and interior lights go out when I turn the ignition key to start but they come back...


Sounds like a dead battery. However, I will tell you that these vehicles are very sensitive to voltage. Try cleaning the battery cables and tightening them properly.

1999 Chevy Tahoe won't Start. Motor will not turn over.


I'm assuming that by turning over, you mean that the engine fails to turn with the starter . Check your battery for 12v and make sure all connections are clean and secure. If battery has less than 12v charge it and check the charging system after re-starting. Lights and radio do not pull the same amperage as the starter and may not tell you much about battery condition. If you have full battery voltage, check the starter for 12v at the battery connection and the small (trigger wire) for 12v with the key turned to start position. If you have both, likely starter has failed.

Left keys in ignition overnight, turned to have interior lights on. battery is dead, cant get key out or pop trunk to get to the battery to charge it.


If you know anyone that has a portable booster, you should be able to plug the cord from the 12v outlet on the booster into the 12v (cigarette lighter or accessory charger) in the car, and get enough power to pop the trunk.

No power to ignition


Hi...
I recomend. If you say the battery is good and Full charged.
First, check the Battery terminal for corrotion or Misscontact.
Clean AS need.
Check all the fuses, include a fuse links.
With a TEST light, check for power at the IGNITION switch.
The switch use 12v. at 1 of the wires.
And when you turn the Switch the rest will have 12v except 1.
if you found power going but not the other ones when you turn. the switch.
Just REPLACE the ignition switch.
But if you can't do this step, I recomend call some mechanic.
because the Electrical System is alittle complicated.

OK.... I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya.
