Locate the Positive cable marked with a + sign.. connect the red cable on the charger to this post.. Take the other clamp from the Batt charger and connect it to the neg Cable post Marked - or connect the negative clamp to anymetal part on the engine.

SOURCE: Batteries won't charge while wired to truck

Hi, seems that your alternator diodes are faulty.
You can check this by disconnecting the radio & switching off all interior lights etc.
Then remove one battery lead.
Then get an amp meter and connect it between the battery & the removed lead.
If you get a reading the alternator is drawing current , hence faulty diodes.
The alternator will still charge the battery when the engine is going but then discharges when stopped.
Also check your batteries with a hydrometer by checking the battery acid in each cell as you could have a dodgey cell in them.

Also , listen for anything under the bonnet when you do this...

How do I use a battery charger to charge my dead battery on a 2001 camaro


The red clamp on the charger goes to the + sign on the battery. The black goes to the -. I you want a deep charge(best) set the charger on 2 amps and run it for 8 to 12 hours. If you need to get the car started, set the charger on 225 amps for just a couple of minutes. Start the car while it is on..2 amps can charge forever. 20 amps for 30 minutes. 30 to 40 amps for 15 minutes. 225 amps for five minutes..DO NOT charge 20+ amps for hours. It will kill the battery

2005 Corvette stored in garage with no battery tender hooked up, now battery is dead. How do i gain access in the car to release the hood to hook up a charger?


Usually you can energize the electrical system by making a mini set of jumper cables using a lamp cord and alligator clips. attach one end to a battery and attach the ground to the starter housing or any metal bracket, the positive lead to the main terminal on the starter. (don't mix up the lead ends...mark them so you can identify them.) Do not try to start the car with this attached. light wire won't handle the amperage.

Dead battery...was told to keep power to the engine when changing battery or it would cause problems to the gauges, etc. Is this true?


If your hooking up a battery charger you can attach it to your battery without removing anything. I would not have your engine running while your charging it cause that doesn't make sense to be using your battery and charging it at the same time. You can also remove the battery from the car if you wish to isolate the battery. be sure to remove to negative cable first otherwise you could cause a short and that could lead to all kinds of problems. Not really sure where your friends got there info but your engine already doesn't have power cause your battery is dead. your best bet is to remove the battery and charge it, then test it, then hook it back up. When you hook it back up be sure to attach the negative cable last.

Charging a battery on a 2001 Caddy sts


when charging a battery it is better that it is disconnected from the car's battery cables and even better if removed, also don't charge it if you smell a rotten egg odor, the cell(s) may be shorted and it could explode. remember red to positive, black to negative, hook the positive up first. don't overcharge the battery, 2 or 3 hours at 4-6 amps is enough charge to have it tested, if it won't charge then the battery is defective and needs to be replaced.

Charge battery


Do you have a battery charger? If you do, connect the red(positive) clamp on the charger (+) to the Positive (+) battery post. Then connect the black(negative) clamp on the charger (--) to the (--)(negative) battery post. Make sure these are hooked up this way, if they aren't, you can damage the car's charging system (big bucks to fix). When you are sure the charger is connected to the battery properly, plug the charger in. It would be best to let it charge overnight. You must then find out why the battery went dead, otherwise, when you go out someplace and turn the car off, you may not be able to start it up again. If it's the original battery it's time to get a new one. You can drive to a major parts store, they will check the battery and car's charging system to see what's wrong for free.Good Luck countrycurt0
