Question about 1989 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

PLEASE HELP!! Charged the battery all night. Turn the key, car turns over but will not start. Battery guage is reading a little lower than usual with the "dead" light flickering on and off. Already waited to see if flooding was the issue. This is our only family vehicle...please help.

Whats a "dead" light? so the engine turns over at normal cranking speed? Why did you charge the battery all night? was it dead?

    The battery gauge inside the car is a little below the marker that is between the D and the C. The red light near the D is what is coming on. I charged the battery because I thought that purhaps the battery didn't have enough juice.

    I think you have a alternator problem, but the engine should still run if the battery is good and charged.

Can a battery read 12volts when engine doesn't start and if lights get turned on voltage drops to 3 volts does this mean the battery is no good


Your battery is definately suspect.Give it a good charge and check it again. If it drops like that when you turn on the lights replace it.A fully charged battery in good condition will read about 14.2V when fully charged. When you turn the key to start it will drop to about 11 and come back up when you turn the key off.

I had exactly same thing on my boat recently...which has a car motor in it. And I also charged the battery and I also had a reading that said I had charge. HOwever, I tried another battery from a car and it suddenly worked. Don't know why, but it really was the battery. When I put the old one back in, it still wouldn't start. With a new battery it's fine. Ya just never know why sometimes!! Good luck!

Sounds like your battery is tired and isn't holding charge as deeply as it did. As batteries get older they don't charge as deep into plates. Your reading of 12.6 is just surface reading. Have local parts store load test it -- they do it for free

95 camaro 3.8 v6 . was driving and car suddenly died .charged battery over night. had it tested, was good. removed starter, it too tested fine. All I get when i try to start is a click. cleaned connections...


The starter is not the issue as you say the car suddenly died. That would not be caused by a bad starter or solenoid.

You car needs the battery to be charged to continue to run. While normally the alternator or charging light would usually come on, I think it has something to do with your alternaor not keeping the charge up on the battery. Without a strong charge, there would not be enough power to turn the engine over, which would explain the starter issue.

The fact that you said the battery had been charged overnight and there wasn't enough power to turn the starter over bothers me. While someone has told you the battery is good, I would take it somewhere else for a 2nd opinion. I have a feeling that the battery is at the root of the problem.

87 jeep cherokee tach climbs when ignition is turnd off. and flashers are slow


You say the alt. is dead. Why not replace it? Is the battery light on when you run the car?
If the alt. is bad, you are running all that equipment just on battery power.
