Yes, sorry but these Remotes are poorly made and quite delicate! Many times just ONE drop will kill them...

Please be SURE you have a FRESH battery... sometimes they can sit on a shelf for a year or more...

Toyota avalon 2000 battery flat ...put starter pack on battery start pack fully charged .....did not start car only clicked starter motor gone ?

Those starter packs are really for a boost . If your battery is dead
its better to replace it especially Toyota they seem to be finicky about a good stiff battery
if you have a multi meter put it on the battery terminals and have someone try to crank while observing the voltage
if the voltage drops below 10 volts usually that battery is on the road to letting you down

Need your thoughts, Sons Ford Probe has been sitting in my garage approx. 2 years without starting it. Put new battery in it and changed battery terminal leads but have no power, no lights ect. What would...

Make sure the new battery is good and fully charged. Also, check carefully your connections to the battery and the connections at the other ends of the cables. The connections should all be clean and tight. Also, look for signs of defects in the cables, especially at the terminals. Good luck!

Next time you replace your battery you need to find one with more cold cranking amps. It is much harder for the battery to produce the voltage needed in the cold. Batteries produce their peak amperage when new which may explain why you have no problems for a year.

1987 200SX V6 I keep replacing the battery every

if its every year, a couple of things to consider are, climate in which you live( extreme colds can "snap" batteries), quality of battery(rebuilt batteries dont tend to have a long shelf life, or low quality, i know we are all on budgets.). always get the right one for the car. analyze when you are having to replace the battery(obviously right now is getting cold, midwest and back east). get the right one and it will come with a warranty if this continues. take a volt meter and see how many volts the alternator is putting out. you dont want any more than about 14.5v. after that you tend to start cooking the battery.

I have a 1987 Ford e 350 motorhome with a 460 c.i. engine. The unit has been stored for about 1 year, with a battery Tender hooked up. My son took it camping and did not get hat, after he stopped for gas...

Often times, with new battery and new alternator installed and still no charge, the problem is corrosion of wires and connections, often the GROUND connection, either at the battery or on the engine.
Recommend - clean all connections.
Also, are there any signs of mice that may have homesteaded anywhere in the vehicle, given that the vehicle sat for one year? May be that wires were eaten through...

Starting problem

Hi Gilby,

Could be a couple things. Here's what to look for:

  • Fan belt - Is it loose, off a pulley, frayed, broken?
  • Terminals / Cables - Unlikly since you just switched batteries, but check any way. Make sure they are clean and tight.
  • Alternator - You're going to need a jump to start the car. You will also need a voltage tester. Test the voltage before jumping. Note:Be careful working under the hood with the engine running. Once it's running, test the voltage at the battery. It should read 13.5VDC. If it's less than 13.0VDC, your alternator needs replacement. While its running, you might take a ride to a local auto parts store. Many will bench check alternators and load test batteries free
  • Definitely get the battery load tested too. New to you, doesn't mean it hasn't been sitting on the store shelf for a year.
One of these should fix you up.
If you get a chance, let me know how it goes.

Thanks for using FixYa
