Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
It sounds like the battery. Check the terminals, make sure they are clean, inside and out, scrape the lead for a fresh contact. take the wires off the lead if you have to , to make a fresh contact there. Check the electrolyte fluid, one of those floaty ball testers, will tell you if a cell is bad or dead. The voltage has to be 13 + or it is dead. If it checks out with all this, then the alternator is not charging, your dash should light up, the battery will carry the car about 20 minutes without the alternator. Then it will die. Hope this helps.
