Under the backseat to hook directly to the battery. or under the hood hot to the fuse box should be a red cover with a + on it, ground to the exhaust.

2005 Corvette stored in garage with no battery tender hooked up, now battery is dead. How do i gain access in the car to release the hood to hook up a charger?

Usually you can energize the electrical system by making a mini set of jumper cables using a lamp cord and alligator clips. attach one end to a battery and attach the ground to the starter housing or any metal bracket, the positive lead to the main terminal on the starter. (don't mix up the lead ends...mark them so you can identify them.) Do not try to start the car with this attached. light wire won't handle the amperage.

My car won't start and it sounds like the battery is dead however i cannot hook up a jumpbox to it because the red has a casing around that makes the area to confined to hook it up. its a 2005 buick...

The cap on the positive battery cable can be pulling out and it has a thearther to not lose it. Some on them have two battery cables and their well known to get corrosion under the bolts and bewteen the cables and the side of the battery the bolt head is 5/16 or 8 MM and needs to be taken apart and all cleaned and connected it's best to charge a low battery or change it as the altenator can go up in smoke after a few minutes charging a dead or low battery after a jump start. If nessary connect the jumper car with it running and let it sit there charging for awhile, then start the dead car and still leave it connected to stableize the charge and not ruin either car. Once running take the car to a parts store or service center and have them test the battery and the charging system. You can aquire a battery charger if you can get an extion cord to the car and charge the battery and in a few hours the car will start if the battery is any good and the charger works correctly. If the battery is real cold and real dead it's possible the battery can explode if jumped off wrong or making a spark. Be real careful with low and dead batteries as they can spray acid in your eyes and on your skin and sparping lots of water on yourself in the cold is a bad deal. and lots of water is the only good way to deal with the acid.

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!!!

My car got left on ACC and the battery is dead, can I jump start it or hook a battery charger to it?

You can jump start it, and then drive it around a little bit til it recharges, or charge it with a charger. Probably cheaper to charge it, save gas

2006 Toyota Rav 4-My battery went from fine to dead in :45. Help.

Answering your questions in order:
  1. No, there's no such device to prevent the car from starting; a battery that requires a jump start would require more than 5 minutes running time to recharge. The battery needs to be charged to work again, (unless it has a dead cell, inexpensive battery testers will confirm). A jump start is still possible but wouild require leaving the jumper cables on for at least 15-30 minutes to provide enough of a charge to start the Rav again. Charging on a battery charger is preferable.
  2. Yes; short trips and lack of use will kill a battery over time.
  3. Yes; Here is a link to the basics of checking a charging system
In summary, most should get more than 3 years out of their battery. You've already determined that the acid levels in the battery are good (most don't even check for fluid levels). Constant charging and discharging will kill a battery and this isn't apparent in your case.
If a battery charger isn't handy, try hooking up the jumper cables and leave the other car running for at least 15 minutes. I hope this answers your questions. Best of luck.

Charge battery

Do you have a battery charger? If you do, connect the red(positive) clamp on the charger (+) to the Positive (+) battery post. Then connect the black(negative) clamp on the charger (--) to the (--)(negative) battery post. Make sure these are hooked up this way, if they aren't, you can damage the car's charging system (big bucks to fix). When you are sure the charger is connected to the battery properly, plug the charger in. It would be best to let it charge overnight. You must then find out why the battery went dead, otherwise, when you go out someplace and turn the car off, you may not be able to start it up again. If it's the original battery it's time to get a new one. You can drive to a major parts store, they will check the battery and car's charging system to see what's wrong for free.Good Luck countrycurt0
