    Hi Chris

    I didn't think my query went through so thanks for your quick reply.

    I've replaced the battery, know where it was etc. but the car now runs badly. i.e. poor idle, seems to have slow response, shocking at high revs. The passenger front and drivers windows will not go up. I do not have the radio code. I do not have a owners manual as I it didn't come with one when I bought it privately.

    I'll get it to a mechanic for diagnostics but really want to know how to re-sync the windows.

    Please can you help me?

I would say you replaced the battery and gave it a hard rev right after starting it for the first time-possible check engine light?-
i would,disconnect the battery again-neg. side-leave it like that for about 10 min.reconnect it and start car,DONT REV resync windows just hold the up function and the switch until the window is all the way up,keep holding it,you will hear a click,it is now resync'd,repeat for all windows and sunroof,push switch up for tilt function,hold until you hear the click,pull down and close,hold for a couple of seconds,as for the rough idle,road test vehicle lightly,dont romp on the give,get on a moderate uphill road,manually shift it to 3rd gear and drive it at 50% load for about 30 seconds and you should be golden.

Need to replace the wiring for a 1998 sonoma on battery need to replace the three long wires

Why would the wires need replacing. You can avoid a lot of extra work by just replacing the battery clamps (terminals). Just make sure the polarity is correct (Red is +, Black is negative ) Always connect the negative wire to the battery post last to prevent arcing. Wear safety glasses when working with batteries as an explosion hazard is present. Use conductive grease on battery post to prevent corrosion.

I have a 2000 Chrysler town & country.Battery light comes on.when it is on with the vehicle running it test reads 11.89 volts,and when I get the battery light to go off it reads about 14.34 volts

Normally an alternator should read in the 13 to 14.5 volt range with the car running.

IF it isn't reading that high, your idle speed could be too low, the belt could be too loose, or the alternator needs a new regulator or the alternator needs to be replaced.

Also check your battery terminal connections for corrosion first, to see if that helps.

If you disconnect the battery, make double sure you have all the radio and other codes needed to restart all of your electronics.

How do I replace the key battery on my 2005 Chrysler Town and Country?


to replace your battery you only need a 1/2 inch socket to remove the battery holder bolt which is located on the left side of the battery then loose the battery terminal and you ready to replace the battery, if you do a replace in less than 4 hours you do not need to reprogram the key neither the remote.

2001 VW GOLF. battery draining over night, a friend of mine who's a mecanic put a light tester to the battery and checked all the fuses no leak there, disconnected the glove compart light switch...

Hi there?
You need to test the battery itself. It could be faulty battery. Some batteries have a little LED bult in them, green led good battery, amber led battery needs charging, red led battery needs replacing.
You could allways disconnect the battery after the use of the car. if the battery still goes flat then you need to replace that battery.

How long does the original battery last? What is required to replace it since it is in a wheel well.

Most batteries wear out every 3 to 5 years and need to be replaced. Always replace your battery with an equal replacement battery to assure proper operation.

To check a battery surface voltage, remove the positive terminal protective cover. Connect the positive side meter lead (red) to the positive side battery terminal. Connect the negative (black) side meter lead to the negative battery terminal. With the vehicle not running and the car sitting over night the battery voltage should be between 12.5 and 12.8 volts.(You will need to use a voltmeter for this testing procedure). If the voltage is not up to specs, replace the battery asap.

Concerning the battery replacement procedure:

This is quite easy. The battery is located near the driver's front right wheel, just behind the wheel liner panel. You will need to turn the wheel all the way in to access the panel to remove the battery. I would raise the car, if possible, to make it a little easier. Raise the car and support the entire frame on support stands, if you can do that.

My battery is boiling and smelling. Is it a faulty battery, or is my alternator causing it to over-charge the battery?

You need to replace the battery to start with. you cannot test the charging system with the battery the way it is or you will get a false reading. Once you replace the battery, you can then test your charging system to see if the alternator is causing the problem. If its charging more than 14.8 -15 volts, its too much and you will need to replace the alternator.
