Re: Charge battery on 2000 300M
Yes it can,if you are putting a battery charger on it,try and use the 2 amp setting if it has it,and let it stay on there about 12 hours,or 24 hours if possible,this will give it a deep charge that will stay with the battery,and the battery can recover quicker,and easier if it is under a load,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

The jump start may have blown you alternator or voltage regulator. If so, you have an inactive charging system. You must have a good battery for this to work, Disconnect the positive cable to the battery. Use a battery charger to slow charge your battery. When the battery is fully charged, reattach the positive cable and try to start your engine. If it starts take the truck to a shop or auto zone to have the charging system checked. Fix what is needed.
Any time a vehicle is jump started, do so with the hot battery car not running and its ignition off. If it is running and your car starts one or both charging systems are usually damaged. There may not be damage if it is GM to GM or Ford to Ford, etc., but to be safe, do not let both cars run at the same time when connected.
A bad battery can either take charged but dishcharge itself or it wont take full charge or it will charge but doesn't provide enough current to crank the engine.
Even new battery can be damaged if left uncharged for a period of time. If the car will not crank because the battery has been drained maybe by playing the radio too long. Jump start the car and let it charge. Or even better use a battery charger. Do not wait till the next day to jump start it because the battery will inquire damage. If the car was ok then all of the sudden it wont start in the morning and you know there is nothing in the car draining it, That means the battery has an internal short. It needs replacement. It will charge again after boosting but it will give you same problem over and over. Whats more the computer can be damaged by too much jump starting. It can also be damaged by a bad battery. If your car wont start and it has roughly 12.6 volts which is the voltage for a fully charged battery, that means the battery is also bad. In eliminating the battery as the culprit all connection must be clean and dry. Grease on the post used to prevent corrsion can lead to poor contacts.
Brand new battery failure that quickly would likely be bad connections at the battery, scrape clean the post connectors of any rust or corrosion. If the problem persists, the alternator would be the next step.
It is best if you remove the battery and charge it on its own, do not place the battery directly on the ground, sit it on a plastic surface or wood, then charge it.
If its starting to drain quickly, its a sign that your alternator is not charging anymore, have it checked to be sure.
wow if your battery is that old i would get a different one but you can have the battery and alternator tested for free at a auto parts store they can tell you if its junk or not but thats why your having them problems when your alternater spins it charges the battery if the battery is no good it wont hold a charge and you car will die now it the alternater is bad it will not keep the battery charged and your car will die.
You need a portable jump starter, may be a friend has one, or swap batteries with another car that has a battery similar to yours (I.E. top vs Side posts and size) a size that will fit same or a little smaller OK and polarity same so you don't cross connect or reverse the polarity remember the + red post goes to red+ and the - black goes to black- post. Then start move car to roomier area then swap battery back then jump start to get it home. and remember to charge your battery with a charger driving does not fully charge and a low battrey may start your car but it makes the starter get hotter from pulling higher amps for a longer time.
#1 Clean your Battery Post's and Battery Cable Connections with a Metal Battery Cleaner Brush.
Make sure the Battery Cables are tightened enough.
I just did my neighbor's van and that was the only problem prohibiting it from starting. It was also inhibiting a proper recharge of the battery from the alternator.
#2 When "jumping": was it Post to Post or Negative to Engine Block and Positive to Post? If so then check your Ground wire going to the Engine Block. Remove and using a metal brush - clean both the wire and the connection spot.
#3 What Fault Code is showing?
#4 Starter Relay possibly faulty. However starting with a "jump" all but rules this out. It again points back the Battery.
#5 Battery may be holding a charge, however whats is the Voltage? Below 10.5 and there is not enough power to Start the vehicle.
