    Sorry seen it is a Celica,
    The Celica has a contact style starter so it may just need new contacts fitted or a starter relay.

    Check that there is good battery positive and negative connections (clean and tight), check that the negative lead from battery negative to engine is fitted tight and secure,also check the positive lead from the battery to the starter motor is tight and secure.

    If you havent got a multi meter a quick test of the battery would be to turn your headlamps on high beam and make sure they look nice and bright.

    What type of car is it?
    Could be contacts in starter motor or faulty starter.
    Try flicking the key quickly on off start position.

Is the charger to be "on" while charging it; then on while hooked to battery?


The portable charger should NOTE be connected to a battery while the battery is connected to a vehicle! Charge the battery off the car, then disconnect the charger and put the battery into the vehicle to start it! If the charger is not working check the fuse! If that is ok then probably damaged the circuitry!

Truck will not keep and charge over night


The battery won't keep a charge or it won't when it is in the truck? Will the battery keep a charge if you put it on the charger and then unplug it overnight, all of this out of the truck. Then in the morning will it start the truck. If not your battery is bad. If it keeps a charge and will start the truck and then it goes dead after several hours, your truck is drawing a load on the battery. You will have to find what has been left on or shorted out.

Car has been driving beautifully. Would not start yesterday after only have been shut off for about 5 minutes. Gave her a jump and she ran great the rest of the day with many stops and starts made...


SOUNDS LIKE THE BATTERY IS SHOT AND NEEDS REPLACING. MOST BATTERIES AVERAGE BETWEEN 2-4 YRS. I'VE SEEN SOME BATTERIES ONLY LASTING A LITTLE MORE THAN A YEAR. DEPENDING ON HOW YOU USE THE VEHICLE, MATTERS HOW LONG A BATTERY CAN LAST. IF YOU SIT & IDLE THE VEHICLE WITH THE A/C ON,FAN AT HIGH SPEED, LIGHTS ON, STEREO RUNNING WILL SHORTEN LIFE CAUSE THERES NOT ENOUGH ALTERNATOR SPEED TO CHARGE THE BATTERY. REMEMBER, WHAT VOLTAGE IS CONSUMED BY THE VEHICLE, THE ALTERNATOR REPLACES THE VOLTAGE BACK INTO IT AND MAINTAIN. PROVIDING YOU DON'T HAVE A RED BATTERY WARNING LIGHT ON THE DASH WHILE DRIVING, IT'S SAFE TO SAY THAT THE ALTERNATOR IS CHARGING. BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE THE CHARGING SYSTEM CHECKED ON YOUR CAR TO ENSURE PROPER OPERATION. GOOD LUCK.

When the weather is very cold (below zero) the car will not even try to turn over it wil only click at the starter and ignition no turn battery is fine never does this any other time. only cold, but once...


It is normal for batteries to lose a good deal of their power due to cold temperatures. If you want better starting power, try using a battery charger/maintainer overnight. It should charge at no more than 2 amps. The slow trickle charging overnight will charge and warm up the battery and allow it to develop full power for a cold morning start.

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.
