Hi if you want to join two batteries to make 12v place the batteries side to side and. Connect the negative from one battery to the plus of the other. Then connect the batteries in the vehicle as normal plus to plus minus to minus. If the vehicle is 6v then connect plus to plus and minus to minus this will give you 6volts and double the amps. Hope this helps. Regards Jim...

Does the Duramax XP10000EH charge its own battery when running or do you have to hook up the alligator clips?

Should be self charge.. However If I'm not mistaken if it does not put out 13.5 volts I would check the 12 volt output socket and see if that sends out 12.5 or better volts and if it does a little re-wire job and a relay would fix this problem..

Radio and cd player do not work on my 95 bronco...should i replace it or try something to test it?

i would test it even if you go with an aftermarket radio you will have to have all your power and test it simply pull the radio out to get the the wires.The red wire is a 12 volt ignition when the key is turned on it sends 12 volts to turn the radio on,the yellow wire is 12 volt constant it should always have power on it.,and finally the black wire is your ground the easy way to test the ground is to simply take a test light and hook it onto the positive post of your battery prob the wire and make sure it lights up.To check for power just do the opposite hook the lead on the light to the ground post on the may have to have a wire ( a jumper wire) to use to hook in between the battery and the test lead on your light.

Battery drains while sitting

Hi Anonymous, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for drop in aprerage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at "BOTH" ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v while cranking replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to:
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor.

When I turned off my car last night it was like when a fuse blows in your house; all the electricity just cut out at once. Then no power for anything, I mean anything. I am guessing alernator, but hoping...

well first of all. check main fuse in fuse box. to check alternator--- with car off at battery, voltage should be at least 12.5 to 13 volts. then when running. there should be at least 14 volts or a bit higher, at battery. but it sounds more like a fuse then anything else. if all is satisfactory then check to see if power is going through ignition. have a good one !!

if the battery cable end have corosion on them the current is not able to charge battery. If you put a multimeter on volts dc 20volts and the car is running and charging properly, the meter should read approx. 14.73 volts. Clean the inside of the cable ends, and the posts on the battery with a wire brush, then coat all of them with some vaseline. Hook them up and tighten. If that doesn't work you will probably need the diagram, to trace a dead short.

Need to know what color 12 volt supply

My manual for a 99 300M shows two sources of 12 volt power to the mirror positioning switch, One is from the battery, switch terminal 11 wire M1, PK (pink). The other is from the start-run 12 volt line, switch terminal 5, wire G5 DB/WT (dark blue, white stripe). If you send me your email address to af6im at arrl dot net I can send you a scanned copy of the diagram.

It is called an inverter, and it may not be hooked up, u will have to trace the source power for the outlets and at the source add an inverter to change 12 volts DC to 110 volts AC.
