You could have a drain on the battery overnight, take cables off and if it starts evry time after that could be a bad alternator take that wire off over night and leave cables hooked up and see if it starts or replace it,,, does it always start after you have been driving it or warmed up like you said,,, sounds like a drain check all the dome lights and acc to see if something is on after you turn off the key.....

How do I hook up this unit Two wires or four


Almost all car batteries have 2 pos and 2 neg. More precisely, 1 pos post and 1 side connector, 1 neg post and 1 neg side connector. You only usually use use one set or the other depending on what connectors are on the end of your cables. You can connect something else to the side posts if you need to, but generally only pair is used.

How do you wire up 4 6 volt batteries in a 1976 kenworth. 12 volt lights 24 volt starter


When you go pos to neg from one battery to the next it increases voltage, pos to pos just increases amperage. You would want to wire 2 in series, just imagine stacking batteries in a flash light, pos from one to neg on next. Remaining pos and neg are 12v now. Run both remaining pos to starter and ground both negs. your pushing a lot of amps with the batteries and doing 12v, and your charging system is 12v. If you do another series from there, you have to regulate the voltage when the starter kicks in...you risk burning every light and electric component...just like running 12v in 6v system... You can also use 4 12v batteries and run all pos to pos and all neg to neg and have mega cranking amps...that is how all modern big trucks are set up. Your pushing around 7k cranking amps that way(1500 per battery)...plenty to start the healthiest cat... And don't have the worry of dual voltages or running in series. You really don't need 24v to start and unless you have a 24v alternator, these are your 2 options. Best bet if your not sure is to try with 12v...no risk of frying anything even on 24v system. 24v on 12v system is, on the other hand, a big risk. 43bf17ec-4e37-4a15-a147-d1e7a1377d9f.jpg

I replaced the battery terminal cable ends. Now the car will not start, There is a clicking noise from the starter.


Bad connection on cable ends or where they connect to battery. Quick check is if you have a good set of jumper cables, use the jumper cable as a replacement for what maybe the defective one. Hook negative cable good to battery neg. post and then put other side on neg cable to engine ground on block. See if it cranks, if it does than the trouble is on the neg. cable. If not then put positive cable on pos. post of battery. Then put other side of pos. cable on the starter post, try to start. If it cranks then the trouble is on the pos side of cable. Hope this helps.

I just got a 1995 bmw 381i. I left it park for 2 nights unused then went out this morning to use it but it wont come on. Its probably the battery but I don't know what to do next. Is there a quick...


Give the car a boost. Hook cables from one battery to another making sure the red , [pos] is on the red [pos] , and black [neg] is connected to black [neg] of other vehicle. Let car charge this way for a few minutes and restart. Sounds like a bad battery, won't hold the charge. Does the car turn over at all, or everything is dead? A tow company will offer boosts as so do most cab companies. Good luck

Gauge showing low output alt only 1yr old wondering if it could be regulator or batt or wiring


if you have access to a digital multimeter, connect the meter (set to volts) across positive and neg. terminal of the battery, should read roughly 12.6 volts, close to 10 volts, battery may be going out, also test the alt output, disconnect neg term and place negative lead to battery neg post and positive lead to neg battery cable (make sure meter is set to amps) should read near the rating, if both those, then you'd want to do a resistance test, (set meter to Ohms) disconnect battery and connect meter neg to either pos cable terminal or where the pos cable connects to the alt and connect positive lead to opposite of neg, should read next to 0, the check resistance of the ground by connecting meter between batt neg cable and body of alt.

First thing every morn. I have to jump it off at the starter. won't work at battery. after 1st start, it will start fine all day. Battery checks out fine. It's like the power does not get to the starter...


It sounds like possible bad batt cable or connection as it takes a bit more batt power when engine is cold to crank engine. if you have a volt meter, you can check this. set to volts dc and put one lead on batt neg. post and one on engine block, crank engine, in theroy you should not see any voltage but if you do, that is whats lost in neg cable, in my exp. you will see about .5 volts if you see too much more than that, i would be looking at cable. you can do same thing on pos. side but keep in mind if you go from batt pos. to large stater pos. at stater and you have a ext. sol. like ford likes to use that your loss could be in the sol. contact as well. And under cranking mode your batt should drop to no less that 9.6 volts under load and thats tested at batt post.

On cold mornings, car won't start the first 2 tries, open the hood and slam the hood and the car starts. please help.


YOU EITHER NEED AN AUTOMATIC HOOD SLAMMER, OR CLEAN THE BATTERY TERMINALS, REMOVE NEG. CABLE FIRST, THEN THE POS. CABLE CLEAN BOTH CABLES & BOTH BATTERY TERMINALS BRIGHT & SHINNY. PUT POS. ON BATTERY & TIGHTEN. LAST THING PUT NEG. CABLE ON & TIGHTEN. IF THE PROBLEM STILL EXISTS, HOLD THE IGNITION SWITCH IN START POSITION, HAVE SOMEONE TAP ON THE METAL PART OF THE STARTER WITH A MEDIUM SIZE HAMMER. IF THAT MAKES THE STARTER REACT, THE STARTER IS PROBABLY BAD.

Might want to check for a loose battery cable, could be either at the battery for both (+/-) or the starter, for the pos. or where the ground (neg) cable is bolted.

Good Luck
