My sons1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the gauges light on and would not start like battery was dead. Had it jump started and it started.When he put in park it stalled jumped again and worked.


Sounds like a charging system problem and the alternator may not be working. The gauge light will come on if the charging gauge is showing low so you will look at the gauges. Have the battery and charging system tested

You said you had a dead battery

It is sort of an unsafe practice to jump one of those
They can explode

A drive around the block won't do the job

Low PCM voltage will shut done the vehicle

Is the battery over 4 or 5 years old?
Is it no charged with a battery charger?
Was it load tested?
Does it have at least 12.6 volts if not, fully charged,
replace it

The fuel pressure has to be checked at the fuel rail on motor
with a gauge & needs to be around 38 to 40 lbs

The pump may not hold pressure & as a result be hard to start

1998 Olds Cutlass- My gauges were moving around very quickly when I turned the ignition. It won't start now and sounds like the battery is dead, but it's not. My gas gauge has spun around and sits under...


HiYour battery is not fully charged, jump start vehicle and take it to and AutoZone or similar auto parts store to have your charging/starting system checked for free.
On the gauges issue, you have to remove the instrument cluster and manually turn/reset the gas gauge. I have a 98 Olds Intrigue and happened a few times. I pull the gauge needle out and set it where it would be if the key where OFF, then plug the electrical connector on the cluster and turn the key to ON to verify gauge positions, on my case, I had to reset the temp. gauge too.
Good Luck! Don't forget to rate this post!!

Gauges jump w/ acceleration & batt/charging light on


First, have the battery charged and load tested. If it does not pass load test, replace it. An alternator is not made to charge a battery. it's job is to maintain the current state of charge. By driving and attempting to charge it that way you over-worked the alternator and may have damaged it or the regulator. Once the battery is fully charged and in good condition, you will need to check the charging system for proper operation. If the gauge system does not return to normal, it will need further diagnosis to correct it.This isn't a "cure" but rather, what you need to do in order to get back to "square one". With the alternator running "flat out" trying to charge a dead battery it can put out over 15volts, possibly damaging the dash/body control module or computer.

06 f150 if lights left on for under 10 min truck needs jump


your first three words...battery checks ok....??? See why its difficult to do this from my end?
Anyhow, here are a few suggestions to keep new battery OK.
If you like to sit in parking lots (or other places) with the radio on, put a small battery charger on your battery every month or so to bring it back to fully charged.
If you run the battery down by leaving anything on (key, dome light headlamps, and need a jump to start, charge the battery with charger also, as soon as you can. Reason is, your alternator is not designed to charge a battery. It's purpose is to maintain the state of charge in the battery. Though it may seem OK after a jump and drive, it will never again have a deep charge unless you put it there with a charger.
This also overworks the alternator.
So aside from keeping it clean on the outside, if you follow this rule it will be happy on the inside and give you even longer than its expected service life in return. Good luck with your car!!
