Question about 1988 Chrysler LeBaron
Firstly...turn your headlights on FULL BEAM (or operate your screen wipers).
As you watch your headlights (or wipers), have an assistant turn the engine to START. If your lights DIM or turn OFF (or wipers slow to a stop)...then your battery/charge circuit is at fault.
Car battery's have an average life of 2yrs.
If you are in a cold climate, this imposes further strain on your battery reserves. The higher the CCA (Cold cranking hours) the better your battery will handle the cold.
Jump starting is enough to get your vehicle moving and driving your car will provide enough current to run your engine......but, will not be enough to fully recharge your battery.
Your battery may simply require a FULL overnite trickle charge to fully rejuvenate it:
If your battery is of the refillable acid (ionised water) type, then ensure the acid levels are JUST ABOVE the plates - if not, then top each compartment with pre-boiled jug water only (ionised) just above the plates. , before attempting to charge. DO NOT touch the acid inside the battery.
Put your battery on overnight trickle charge.
If your battery is known to be in perfect condition, then suspect a problem with your Alternator or Charge Regulator.
Hope this helps...
