Question about 1999 Chrysler 300M

1 Answer

Battery was dead and put on a charger. Returned to find a tripped circuit in the garage and still a dead battery. Put on charger 2nd time, no home circuit problem and it took the charge...BUT, NO: headlights, A/C, power locks/security, blower is on full blast but no central dash controls work and gas gauge reads empty with low gas light on. Took it to local station and they checked the fuses and relays - all good. Pulled the body computer and sent it to an expert - said he could find nothing wrong with it, but it's programming is obviously scrambled. What are my options without spending a fortune at the dealer? Any kind of factory reset button or simple procedure fix? Thank you

I have a 2013 Chevy Tahoe with an unexplained battery drain, what could it be? help please


You could have a parasitic drain. Something that is left on in the car and drains the battery. It could also be a corroded terminal on the battery where the alternator is not getting power to charge the battery . Clean the post and the connector of all deposits and install those felt washers under the terminals to impede further corrosion.

Dead battery problems-


Unless the battery charger is a high power over 12amp hours charge rate you should be looking at 12-18 hrs minimum as the battery is a 78Ah unit for the 2 litre you may get of with 6 hrs but that may give 3-4 start attempts before recharge required

1995 dodge stratus keeps going dead in driveway. I jump it off and let it run 15 mins to charge battery up. Turn off and crank right up, but the next day it is dead again.


With engine running used a voltmeter and check voltage at battery, you will be checking alternator out put voltage, should have a reading of no less then 13.0 volts, if less bad alternator, the reason it keeps going dead is that the car is using the battery to run it .till the battery has no more power, then you jump it and the battery is charge up again and will run again till it goes dead again.

Battery in Jeep Grand Cherokee dead this am and less than 1 year old. I have a Everstart 100 battery charger plugged in and on the car. How long does it take to charge the battery. The charger is plugged...


How many amps does this charger put out????
A small trickle charger will take forever to fully recharge a dead battery, you'll need to have a battery charger that can put out enough amps to properly charge a dead battery.To clarify, the chargers sold at Sears, the large square types on wheels are the best for charging dead batteries and they also have an amp meter telling you how much the battery is accepting. After you charge your battery, you should be around 12.5 volts to 12.7 volts. DO NOT OVER CHARGE!!!

1999 cad concourse, 75,000 miles, excellent shape. have had 3 or 4 times over past 6 months: engine wont turn over. (like a dead battery but put in new one last year). dash lights, horn,security,door...


This car might not get enough exercise. By that I mean there are things that are running all the time, remote entry systems, clocks, alarm systems. You may have a new battery, but it needs to be kept up to snuff. Sitting alone in the garage with NOTHING running, the battery will lose about 1% per month in ideal circumstances. As I said, your battery is powering all kinds of things while sitting in the garage so the drain is more than the 1% I mentioned. You may want to consider a trickle charger on this car if you are not able to drive it for at least 20 miles or more per week every week.

It seems your average mileage is just under 150 per week. I'm guessing you don't drive this car much on short trips, rather the bulk of your miles were highway on trips.

If I missed the boat on this question, please add a comment and I will try again.

Battery and cold storage of car for several months


a good battery will hold a charge through the winter if disconected from the vehicle adn left fully charged.
you may want to look into a battery monitoring charger, it is a trickle charger that is designed for long term use, it monitors battery volts and turns on when needed.

also put carpet squares or cardboard under the tires if you are parking on concreet. this will help prevent dry rot and flat spots
