No, the battery is shot, Just get a new one, you should be all set. The electrolytes have to be good in all cells, one bad cell is dead battery, the battery must maintain 13+ volts at all times. Clean the terminals good when changing the battery, you can get it tested at walmart for free, but I would say it is shot. Hope this helps.

Radio went out in my 95 ford aspire


Read about the radio not working and you think you have a blown fuse . I had a blown fuse due to me blowing it by shorting out the dome light . After changing the fuse I had code 52 which is a low ground fault for air bags . I then looked to find the large four fuses under the hood and found that three were OK but when trying to remove the 80 amp fuse with a pliers it broke . when I got it home I pulled the battery completely out and found that the 80 amp fuse has plastic covers on both side that cover bolts that hold it in place . Removed the bolts to find that part was burnt of from the short . After replacing it all was good and hour of driving it reset on its own .

I would say there is a short somewhere. You can get a resetable fuse.

What could cause the battery to run down, even when the car is not started?


Hi, First check the doors that they are closed.(so the light goes out). Check the trunk that the light is out. Check the engine hood light if any is out. Second check that battery is charged and can hold a charge. If not the battery has internal discharge. Oh and ya have the radio looked at or turn it off when you leave.
Good luck.

Charging ok new battry wont hold charge 4 more than 2 days


You can start by disconnecting the battery ground cable, connect a 12 volt test lamp between the cable and the battery post, If it lights up you have a short. and you'll need to start pulling fuses one at a time until the test lamp goes out. at that point you will know where to look for short.

If the battery is draining when the car is off most of he time it is from eather a light on the you may not be able to see like a glove box light or a radio staying on


to fix this u will need a test light (borrow one or buy one there cheap if u dont have one)
disconnect the positive battery cable attach one end of test light to the positive battery post attach other end of test light to the disconnected battery cable if the light real bright start pulling fuses until the light goes out or goes real dim (the dim light is the draw from computer,radio,etc so small of draw wont hurt battery) once you pull the fuse that makes the light go dim or out check that circuit for short circuits

if when you put test light on light not on or real dim before u pull fuses you more than likely have a weak battery that wont hold a charge

2000 Cavalier won't start, making fast clicking sound w/ ignition


Low voltage will cause the problem you are having,get the battery charged,and then have the alternator checked for the correct out put,13.65 to 14.25 if it is not in this range give or take a couple of volts,replace it,I would have the battery replaced also,so you won`t have the problem again.Have a shop replace the battery,if you do it yourself,the memory could be erased if certain measures are not performed.

Everything works great..However periodicaly radio wont work than battery dead after sitting for sometime.If i pull audio fuse [thats not blown]and re install fuse radio is fine and battery stays...


the radio is pulling down the battery, check to make sure it is install properlt, also make sure your battery is not weak, because remember the radio draws power at all time, to keep the time and your preset radio station. so check the battery for proper strenght first please.
