Battery wont stay charged


first charge battery or jump start. then remove negative battery cable. If the engine dies, you need an alternator. if not, shut off car, hook a test light between the negative cable and the battery negative post (with cable disconnected) if it lights, then you have a short draining the battery. make sure the doors are closed and lights are off while doing this, otherwise you could get a false reading. If the battery is original, it may just be bad. Walmart or auto zone can test the battery for you

SUV started fine this morning, Came out from work after 10 hours and it will not start. Did not show any signs that the battery was dead, but not enough juice to start. Tried to jump it and could not. Then...


This happens sometimes with dead batteries taht have more than one dead cell in them. Disconnect the Positive battery cable and connect the jumper cables to that directly and the vehicle should start provided the vehicle providing the jump has a battery with enough amperage to turn your motor over. If there is a leak in that front adjustable air shock this will happen again because that compressor will continue to run trying to get the proper pressure on that shock.

My 2001 Mercury sable will not start and when I tried to jump start still wont start but alarm goes off and windshield wipers go haywire could it be the starter?


It could be the starter, but i would start with having your battery load tested. Sounds like that is the problem. I hope this helps.

Try closing the doors then hook up jumper cables, let it sit for a couple of minutes with cables hooked up and other vehicle running. Then try to use key to turn off alarm before opening door. Then try to start it.

Battery dead every morning, hav 2 jump start..battery n alternator good


you have a drain on the battery. take the positive battery post off and connect a test light between the battery post and the cable. it should be very dim. if it is bright you have a short somewhere. make sure the doors are closed and take out the under hood bulb. if your test light is bright, start pulling fuses out untill light goes dim, then whatever fuse you removed to dim the light that will be the circut that is affected.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee alarm keeps randomly going off.


this happened to me recently with my 96 grand cherokee. the battery got drained by the alarm going off randomly at night. i pulled the fuse for the horn so at least my neighbors would only be bothered by flashing lights. then i couldn't jump the car because the alarm was still going off. i hooked my car to jump it to another car, and then i had to deactivate the alarm first by putting my key in the driver side door and unlocking the car. then i left it hooked to another car and still getting power but didn't jump it for at least 5 minutes in case the computer needed to reset. then it jumped fine. from what i've read online, this is a common problem that can be avoided if you stop using the power locks and always manually lock and unlock the doors with your key. its a little annoying, but apparently the power locks are connected to the alarm issue. hope the same works for you.
