There should be an ac plug in the back of the unit. plug it up with an extension cord and the display will give you the percentage of the charge remaining. FL is full.

SOURCE: my 92 ford tempo wony start,charged battery,

Most Fords I have worked on use a solonoid. Measure the voltage on the starter motor side when you turn the key. Does it show 12v? The solonoid may be energizing but if the contacts are bad the starter won't get current. Jumping across the two large terminals will also bypass the contacts, see if this will crank the motor. Use a wire the same size as connected to the large terminals. The starter pulls hundreds of amps.

Ford ikon 1.8 is not starting every day morning

what are the symptoms, dead battery, do you need to jump it to start, did you drive at night the day before?, check your charging system, mast be over 13.5 volts, over 25 amps charge, check you battery CCA, cold cranking apps, over 400 amps, finally check the starter for power signal, check the solenoid, if you suspect the starter replace it. but first check you battery terminals, make sure the are tied, clean and making good contact. my money is on the starter.

I here a click when i turn the key the engine doesn"t turn

This could be caused by a few different things. First make sure your battery is fully charged. Check the battery connections. Once you know your battery is good it could lead to a problem in the starter. If you can tap the starter with a blunt object and it then starts. I would go ahead and replace the starter. If its a low battery you might have a problem with your charging system. If you jump your car be sure to connect the jumping cables correctly. If it starts right up its probably a low battery. Hope this helps. Koladge

1991 Lexus 400 - engine doesn't start - battery seems charged - 12.3 volts - makes clicking sound only - doesn't turn over at all.

Is it one click or multiple clicks. If it's multiple clicks, it sounds like a dead battery. Voltage isn't always an indicator of a good battery, you need to have enough cranking amps to be able to start an engine also. If you have dash lights and it only clicks once, you could have a bad starter. An easy way to check this is to try and jump start the vehicle. If it starts up with a jump start, you need a new battery. If it still doesn't start up and it just clicks, you probably need a new starter.

Good Luck!

Put new starter in lexus put back to gether now turn key on and dose nothing

Inspect the wiring. Make sure that the terminals are cleaned including the ground. Try to jump start it by connecting it to the battery of another car. If it runs, check your battery and your alternator as well if it is charging the battery correctly. If it does not, inspect the starter relay.

Car won't start. clicks.

Try turning your car over with the interior lights on. If they dim way down, you have a weak or dead battery. You may be able to have it charged.

You can try a "jump start", but only if you are certain that you know what you are doing- if you have any doubt, have a friend who knows how help, or ask a mechanic. If not done properly, jump starting a car can not only be hazardous to both vehicles, but it can lead to serious personal injury.

Many of the risks associated with "jump starting" apply to charging a battery, so please apply the same cautions.

If after either a "jump start" or charging the battery get your car started, GREAT! You will need to follow through to make sure your battery is OK, though.....
- Take your car to a good service center and ask them to test your battery. They will connect a device that will stress test your battery to make sure it is holding a charge like it should. If it cannot pass the test, you need to replace your battery.

If the interior lights do NOT dim when you try to start your car, the problem is either the starter relay, the starter solenoid, or the starter itself.

My car will not start after i took the battery cable loose.Is there some sort of safty thing that is stoping it from cranking?

Did you reconnect your battery cable? The battery needs to be connected to crank the cars starter. If it is not connected ; reconnect and try to start. If it won't start. Try to jump from another car or get the battery charged at a local auto store (Auto Zone, Advance Auto).

If your battery is connected and in good shape you may have a problem with your starter if your car will not crank. Have that checked out

Won't start or jump

I just had this problem last week. The starter is definitely shot. Don't take it in to Nissan though. They will charge you at least 500 bucks for the starter and probably another 300-500 for labor.
Just call a couple shops and get a quote. I got mine replaced for 400 bucks and thats part and labor.

Car won't start

If by "trying to start" you mean that the engine is turning then it isn't the starter that's bad as a couple have said. The starter's sole purpose is to spin the engine so it can start if, gas, spark, compression and timing are correct. If any one of those four are not available the starter can spin the engine until the battery dies and it won't start. If you don't know how to check for proper delivery of fuel, spark, timing and compression then I'd suggest taking it to a reliable mechanic.
