Battery can read 12 volts,turn on headlights,blow horn and other wise look normal but may not have enough cranking amps to turn over the engine.The easy thing is to take another battery from another vehicle or jump start it from another vehicle to see if indeed it is the battery.

Why does my battery keeps dieying


You probably need a new battery if it doesn't hold a charge. Average lifetime of a battery is about 2 years. Look on the outside of your battery and there should be a label with a year and month punched out which will tell you when it was made. Look inside the battery to see if there is corrosion or low water. If the water is low put in distilled water, fill it not quite full but so the water is above the metal plates then charge again. If its corroded it won't charge well. If it takes a full charge then dumps it once its put back in the car you will need a new one.

After driving long enough to get to operating temp if I shut it off and then try to start it ithin 10 minutes it acts as if the battery is dead. won't turn the starter but battery shows full charge an


To recharge the current taken out of the battery during start up requires at least 10 -15 miles driving. Driving less than that, progressively drains the battery available power until it has not enough power for another start. Such a battery "resting" for more than 10 minute might regain enough power for a start but is inherently flat. Put it on a battery charger for at least 12 hours or go on a 2 hour or more drive. It should be OK for quite a number of starts even when doing short distance driving. If it is showing the same symptoms directly after to 12 hour charge/drive get the battery tested at a garage or battery dealer who will be able to tell if the battery needs replacement. If the battery test OK there might be bigger problems like a blown top gasket or problems with the starter motor.

Please visually check your battery. If top of the battery is surrounded with blackish material, or it is used for more than two years, probably it is dead. If not, then get the specific gravity of the battery be checked. It is supposed to be in between 1.280 - 1.320 at the temperature of 40 degree Celsius. If the specific gravity is found low it needs to be re-charged for nineteen to twenty two hours at the rate of slow charging.

While putting electric window down engine stalled and all electrical went dead even dome light everything is completely dead electrical and batteries good


check the main fuses (bigger fuses in the engine compartment fuse block)
if they are ok, check the ground wire from the battery for defects and the terminals and connection to the chassis for corrotion

Dead battery even after 12 hours of charging?


Sounds like battery is fine, or at least o.k. , but there is a problem with the starting system. If you put headlights on, then have someone try to start it while you watch headlights, and they don't dim way down, then battery if o.k. for now. Do you know what killed the battery originally, was it just from sitting for a while & not being used? Listen & locate the clicking noise if you can, it sounds like relay or solenoid. You can try a boost & see if that may help. If it's automatic, move shifter through all gears, then try. If standard, make sure clutch in all the way . Let me know what happens.
