The reason your battery only reads 10 volts is because a battery is made up of 6 individual cells. One of the cells is bad. So even by jump starting your vehicle with another car you will still only get 10volts from your batter plus a small 12 volt boost from the other car but only as much amperage as the battery cables will carry. You may also find that the starter is dragging a bit. By replacing your battery you will get a lot more starting power.

Car wont start unless I boost it checked battery and it reads 12.43 on multi meter and checked when I boosted it and went up to 14on meter


A healthy battery reading 12.43 should still be capable of cranking an engine fast enough with enough current left over for the fuel and sparks to start - that is assuming the spark plugs, etc. are also in good condition.

An off-load reading of 12.43 means little on it's own and is only one of a number of tests used to determine battery state. The most important test is to measure the battery voltage while the engine is cranking. It is reckoned a healthy battery attached to a healthy engine, starter, ignition system, etc. will ideally read no less than 12 volts - an analogue meter is best for this test.

12 volts is rather optimistic even for a serviceable system. 10 volts is more realistic and some engines will happily start at 9 volts as long as the cranking speed is still good but any lower and either the battery is in a too-low state of charge, is faulty or the starter motor is taking too much current and needs servicing.

My Volvo s60 battery died jumped got it started let it run 10 mind tried again now nothing


Sounds like 2 possibilities, A) your alternator is not charging the battery or B) your battery is pooched.

To check your alternator, 1) without the engine running apply a volt meter to your battery, it should read somewhere around 12 volts. 2) boost the car, and with the engine running test your battery again, it should read approx. 14-15 volts.

If it reads 15 volts, your alternator is fine, and your battery is suspect, if it only reads 12 volts when running, then your alternator needs to be replaced.

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

I have a 1995 safari van charged battery and took it off charger it then wouln;t start so i boosted it, then started took it for a drive and then shut it off it wouldnt start whats wrong with it?


May have a bad starter solenoid and the extra boost is whats needed to get it to work.
May also have a dead cell in the battery. Use a multi meter and test the battery. Should have about 12.6 volts. 12 volts would not be a full charge. May even want to take the battery to a parts store and have it tested unless you have a tester to check the amps.

My truck has sat for awhile but it boosted off just fine. I t ran for about 10-15 min then died. I tried to start it again nothing happened. I tried to boost it off nothing not even a click. I had lights...


the battery is totally to the point that not enough amps are being received from it,, so a jump won't even help, charge it completely ,, the lights and other items on the car require small amperage and 12 volts,, the starter requires a bunch of amps to turn it over, after you do that ,, check the alternator you can use a meter on the battery posts with the car running, and should have a reading of 13.5 to 14.5 volts

I have a 97 escort, it has been sitting for a while so when i went to start it, no battery charge. Once i boosted it, it ran no problem, if you turn car off and try to start again, no charge. I left...


The first thing to do would be to put the battery on a slow or trickle charge for about 24 hours. It may be worn down enough from sitting that it needs to be revitalized. This should do it if the battery is still good. While it is charging, clean up all your cable ends and terminals to bare shiny metal. Do the battery, starter and alternator and the grounds in the engine compartment. Once the battery is charged up try it again. If the car will only start once or try to start once and need to be boosted, you will need a new battery. If it starts and runs repeatedly, then get the output checked on the alternator. A new one should charge at 14-14.5 volts but as long as it shows better than 12 volts it should be okay. Also when you are testing it, turn all your accesories on, radio, heater, A/C operate power accessories and watch to see how the alternator handles the load. The needle on your meter will bounce a little but should come back to where it was. If it doesn't then you will need to replace it as well. Hope this helps.

Sons projects - Car doesnt crank over without a boost


have the battery charged andtested first. once a good power source is in there, take a volt meter and test your battery terminals for at least 13.5 volts. if not replace the alternator.

Have a 1996 Taurus wagon--dead battery--got brand new battery and connected it properly and car barely turns over and wont turn enough to start--car was sitting for about three months


Was the battery checked before it was sold to you? Batteries will lose their charge over a period of time even when not hooked up. If you have a voltmeter it should read 12.8 volts on a fully charged battery.
Have you tried to boost the car with cables?
I suspect if the car was working OK 3 months ago it should start. Which leads me to suggest an undercharged battery.

Starts with boost then car dies after 1 km and won't start


once the car is started it runs off the alternator .. so even if your battery is bad the alternator will still run the car .. so it looks lilke your alternator is bad .. when you jumped the car you charged the battery a little but not enough to keep it going since the alternator is not charging . if you hook up a charger overnight then you might be able to run it long enough to get somewhere (garage) .. try to drive when you dont need lights .. those will run down the battery in a short time .. if you have a volt meter then the battery should read about 13.8 to 14.2 volts when the alternator is working properly (car running) .. if it reads lower (like 12volts or less) then the alternator is not charging .. some auto parts stores will test your system free ..
