    Thanks I got it. It's the husbands car and I just wanted to make sure that charging it with a battery charger wouldn't hurt anything. It is back up and running fine.

Recharge battery Cadillac Deville 2005


You do not need to remove the battery to charge the battery. When you connect the charger you MUST be careful to connect the charger's positive lead to the positive terminal to the battery and the negative lead to the negative lead to the battery before you turn on the battery charger. Connecting the charger leads the wrong way around most likely damage the vehicle's electronics.
When you finish charging the battery turn off the charger before you disconnect the charger leads. This will prevent arcing between the leads and the battery.

Left key on and killed battery. Now it dies when I come to a stop or slow down, and it doesn't idle right and dies most of the time. What can be causing this?


A discharged battery should be recharged with an external battery charger--about 2 to 3 hours with a high-current (10 to 30 amps) charger, overnight with a low-current charger (2-4 amps). Check the battery voltage after charging and the engine running--it should read about 13.5 volts if the the alternator is working. It will read 12.6 or less volts if the alternator is bad, or the fuse link is blown in the wire that runs from the alternator output to the starter solenoid connection where the positive battery cable is connected. Once the battery is charged, take the car to Autozone or similar business that will provide a free check of the battery and charging system if you don't have access to a voltmeter. Hope this helps!

I went to vacation for a month and tried to restart my car, no luck. Also tried using jump start still no luck,(BMW 325i -2004) Please advice


Is it turning over at all or is the starter at least clicking? Check the water in the battery if it has removable caps. If the water is low then fill it with distilled water. If the battery went too far down on juice it may have a dead cell and need to be replaced. You could try a slow charge for 24 hours and see if the battery makes a recovery. They make a little solar trickle charger that has a solar panel that goes on your dash and has a cigarrete lighter plug. Something like this can keep your battery from dying when on long vacations. If the car is in the garage it comes with a long cord to run the panel outside.

I suppose this is what you want to know
The battery charger has 2 leads coming off it as well as the power lead to the external power source .THE TWO LEADS WITH CLAMPS ON GO TO THE BATTERY THE RED GOES TO THE POSITIVE TERMINAL PLUS SIGN AND THE BLACK GOES TO THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL.MINUS SIGN, THE POWER LEAD PLUGS INTO THE POWER. AND THAT IS ALL THERE IS TO IT..
