Question about Cars & Trucks
When I tried to trickle charge I noticed that no charge was "taking". I flipped open the fuse box and wiggled the fuses individually and "voila" charger was working. I unfortunately don't know which fuse is the problem. Suggestions?
I would test the battery first.
You can but a tester for 10 to 15 dollars witch is kind of like a turkey baster that will draw out the fluid out fo the battery if you remove the caps and stick it in the wells .
What this will do is measure the specific gravity of the water and sulferic acid mixture in the battery and indecate if a cell is weak .
Their are 6 cells and all it takes is one to be weak .You may read 12 volts with a volt meter across N and P teriminals but thats not enough in a working system its all about AMPS NOT VOLTS .
How much power force can it send out compared to what is comeing into it for how long Battery 101
