Hi Alan Yes you are right the alarm will go off unless the battery is that flat that it doesn't have enough power to sound the alarm. This is the old catch 22 situation. Have a pair of grips and a 10mm spanner ready to minimise noise time. If you have the radio code, you can unlock it with the key, pop the bonnet, and disconnect the Negative lead with the green thumbscrew and pull it off the terminal first to reduce the risk of shorting, also tends not to spark as much as the other way, then when you come to disconnect the Red Positive, theres no way you can short your spanner to the vehicle earth. Ahhh, Silence! then remove the Positive lead and charge your battery, remove the cell plugs to let the hydrogen gas escape, and make sure its well ventilated, otherwise, BANG could happen, unless its a sealed battery, then don't worry. Once its charged reconnect in the opposite order, but be ready with your keyfob, or better still have a mate ready as soon as you hear the alarm, lock then unlock. Then just re-enter the radio code by pressing the respective number buttons. If you don't have the code, you will need it reading, usually about £10 - £20

SOURCE: Car and lawn tractors will start with booster

lead acid (auto) type batteries cannot be left in a discharged state very long without damage ...if they have been discharged awhile then they will recharge but at greatly refuced capacity ... sometimes they can be recovered but usually its perminant damage .. even if the batteries can be saved it would still take several hours to recharge leaving it on a charger overnight will show you if its a lost cause or not can have the batteries "load tested" usuallly at auto parts stores for free .....they should be fully charged first to save time ...lead acid batteries should always be kept in a state of full charge ...never store them in a discharged condition or allow them to selff discharge (a discharged battery will freeze over the winter) ... charging once a month should keep them healthy .. more often in a car since the computer draws current all the time .. if you have a regulated charger then you can leave it connected all the time for storage ...high resistance battery connectios will have the same effect .. so remove and clean the battery terminals to eliminagte that possibility ... you can have your alternator tested at most auto parts stores ..usually free .. if you have maintainable batteries then check the water level . dont over fill .. use distilled water ...if your charging systems are ok then it sounds like you need new batteries ...

SOURCE: battery going flat alternator charging ok still going flat

I would start by checking for draws. You can do this with a DVOM capable of reading amperage or with a low amp probe. With a volt meter set the meter to the 10 am range. Remove the positive cable from the battery. Hook one lead of the meter to the positive battery post and the other to the positive cable end. You should see less than .050 amps of draw and better yet at least half of that. If you see more you will need to start pulling fuses to see which one makes the draw go away and then focus on that circuit. Btw, always post a Year, make, model, and engine size with any automotive related question. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Can you use a Motomaster eliminate Battery booster pack with Air compressor 1400 peak battery AMPS 700 crank assist AMPS To charge a battery or just jump start it

If booster is fully charged and the vehicle battery is almost discharged it is inevitable some battery charging will take place but it is likely to be a slow and incomplete process and could shorten the life of the booster which isn't built for such work.

It is also worth noting the car alternator is also not built for charging the battery and is often incapable of doing so. The purpose of the car alternator is to keep a fully charged battery fully charged and a discharged battery can even cause damage to an alternator.

After i charged the battery to full my car won't turn over radio not working but everything else does what happened. did i fry something?

Okay .. why did you have to charge the battery in the first place? Did your car not turn over/start?

Be aware, that even with a faulty battery .. you can still 'charge' it. A faulty battery can still provide 12 volts but won't start the car ( it can't provide the necessary amps).

If the battery is fully charged (and faulty) you may get the radio to work and a few ignition lights on the dashboard, but not for long. The car probably won't even attempt to turn over.

If the battery is okay and the car won't attempt to turn over, it's probably a loose battery terminal connection. Check the tightness of the battery connections.

Try getting a friend to boost-start your car with booster leads. If your car does start with this method, it suggest that your battery is faulty/failing.

The best solution is to call a mobile mechanic. They will tell you within minutes what the problem is. It does sound like a faulty/failing battery ..

High rpm after putting in drive

first.... is this when the engine is cold or at operating temp. or does it make a difference.
it would help to know what make model and year, that being said, high idle is generally caused by vacuum leak somewhere or dirty throttle body . does it have a vacuum brake booster or power steering brake booster?

Why does my break pedal leak air?

You have a bad seal in your break booster unit,, just behind your master break cylinder is a big roung doughnut looking thing, this unit works off vacume from the engine, it helps you push down on the break peddle so its not so tuff to stop! well on that booster unit there is a seal that keeps the unit from loosing vacume past the rod leading into your break peddle, sounds like this seal is leaking vacume .. you can replace this unit your self if you want to tackle it, its going to be some work to replace and you should probley have the manual on this truck to do the work.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Try having your alternator tested. Also make sure the belt is tight. It's also possible to have a defective battery, take it back to where you bought it and have them test it.

Lights are on, all bells all on, when i start to turn it over to start it it makes a ticking sound and wont start

the battery doesn't appear to have enough charge to turn over the motor, running the lights etc doesn't require alot of power compared to what it would take to start the car. a boost will confirm that. you will need to test further to see if the alternator has failed or the battery.

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.
