Couple questions: Is the battery three or more years or older? If not a maintenance free battery, is it full of water (if you can easily remove the caps, it is NOT maintenance free). How dead it is? Have you taken any measurements? Voltage should be 12 volts and acid should read 1200 on a fully charged battery. The charger you are using, what is its capacity? Most vehicle batteries can produce 300 amps or more when charged. If you have a 10 amp charger it would take 30 hours at 10 amps to fully charge a 300 amp battery. The battery on my vehicle is rated at 1000 amps just for a point of reference.

At 20 minutes I wouldn't expect to see much change in the condition of a dead battery with a consumer grade charger. If the battery is out of the vehicle, I suggest you take it to your local auto parts store to have it tested. If it needs charged, they may be able to put some juice in it for you for a couple bucks. If it needs replacement, you have 1/2 the job done and you will not have to worry about the core charge since you have the old battery with you. While you are there, the guy or girl at the counter can probably tell you what the age of the battery is.

If you are keeping this car, I recommend you get a premium battery for your car. The best only costs a couple bucks more.

I hope this answers your battery question.

Thank you for you interest in FixYa.com

My s type 3 liter v6 petrol engine jag does not get driven very frequently,so battery seems to discharge very quickly,fires up fine on a jump start,but then dies after 20 seconds .can you put me rite.


Before jumping the battery, check it with a meter to see what voltage it is. For 12v batteries a fully charged battery should be 12.7 volts. Anything less that that will decrease it's starting capacity and likely cause it to develop a self destructive process if allowed to get below 12.4 volts. The more advanced a car is the more it seems to have parasitic loads that consume battery when the vehicle is supposedly turned off (car alarms, remote key-less entry and so on).

If you are going to leave any vehicle unused for any period of time that causes the voltage to fall below the 12.4 - 12.5 volt range you should do one of two things, either disconnect the battery (unless you need the car alarm) or put it on a battery maintainer (trickle charger).

Once the vehicle is running, make sure the alternator charging voltage measured at them battery terminals is in the upper 13 volt range, or you have a charging issue and only a new battery will be able to sustain the engine under that condition for any length of time. Vehicles with electronic controls require a battery voltage of a certain voltage or it will shut down.

If it isn't a battery issue, then you have a bigger problem I can't resolve for you. Before I forget, every attempt at starting ANY auto engine is going to require the car charging system to run several minutes to replenish what was used to for each attempt, my guess is about 10 - 15 minutes depending on the air temperature.

Alternator not working


What is year--make--model of vehicle? I'd check alternator connections to and from alternator. Check battery and battery connections. Check for charging system trouble codes, see if any?

How do I use a battery charger to charge my dead battery on a 2001 camaro


The red clamp on the charger goes to the + sign on the battery. The black goes to the -. I you want a deep charge(best) set the charger on 2 amps and run it for 8 to 12 hours. If you need to get the car started, set the charger on 225 amps for just a couple of minutes. Start the car while it is on..2 amps can charge forever. 20 amps for 30 minutes. 30 to 40 amps for 15 minutes. 225 amps for five minutes..DO NOT charge 20+ amps for hours. It will kill the battery

Is your battery frozen? If the charge level went very low on a cold night it could freeze the battery and will not likely take a charge till it thaws out. If the battery froze I would recommend replacement.

The car is not holdong a charge. I replaced the Battery about a year ago. Today I replaced the alternator. I used jumper cables it ran for about 20 minutes and then died again. All the wires look good. Any...


FIRST, YOU MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED.. A GOOD BATTERY WILL GO FOR 12 HOURS EVEN IF THE ALTERNATOR IS NOT WORKING.. SECOND YOU TURN THE CAR ON.. ONCE THE CAR IS ON. YOU DISCONECT THE BATTERY,, IF THE ALTERNATOR IS GOOD , THE CAR SHOULD REMAIN ON WITHOUT A BATTERY.. IF IT SHUTS DOWN , YOU HAVE A BAD ALTERNATOR OR THE WIRING IS WRONG ONE OF THE TWO.. SHORTS ON YOUR WIRING CAN CAUSE THE BATTERY TO LOOSE POWER.. BUT NOT THAT FAST. BECAUSE IF THE SHORT WAS TO SERIOUS.. YOUR WIRING WOULD BE BURNED.. COMPLETELY..
IF THE ALTERNATOR IS OKAY,, REPLACE YOUR BATTERY,, MOST OF THE TIME BATTERIES GO BAD EASY WITH ANY LITTLE PROBLEM THE CELLS BURNOUT AND THEY DONT HOLD A CHARGE EVEN IF FULLY CHARGED THEY WILL LOOSE POWER IMMEDIATELY .. I THINK THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM.. SINCE IT ONLY LASTED LIKE 20 MINUTES.

Starting / Cranking is a problem: With key ignition, turn; there's a slient buzz noise. Head lights and dash board lights come on, however it doesn't respond to crank. Weak response is battery sometimes...


This could be a battery thats bad and doesnt have enough voltage or the starter is bad, easy to figure out, have the battery tested if its bad then replace it but if it tests good then i would replace the starter and also have the charging system checked to make sure the alternater is charging the battery up. hope this is helpful.

It just clicks wont start nuffing


Your battery is dead. Try jump starting and run the car for about 20 minutes (going for a drive would be best). Turn the lights on - if they dim over time or the car sputters after awhile, your alternator is the actual problem (the device that charges your battery). If the car runs well for the 20 mins but won't start again (clicking), then you'll need to replace the battery.

Gauges jump w/ acceleration & batt/charging light on


First, have the battery charged and load tested. If it does not pass load test, replace it. An alternator is not made to charge a battery. it's job is to maintain the current state of charge. By driving and attempting to charge it that way you over-worked the alternator and may have damaged it or the regulator. Once the battery is fully charged and in good condition, you will need to check the charging system for proper operation. If the gauge system does not return to normal, it will need further diagnosis to correct it.This isn't a "cure" but rather, what you need to do in order to get back to "square one". With the alternator running "flat out" trying to charge a dead battery it can put out over 15volts, possibly damaging the dash/body control module or computer.

2000 pont. g/p int. start/stall. replaced theft module twice,comp., ig.swicht,keys,P1629


THIS SYSTEM REQUIRES A REPROGRAMMING PROCEDURE AFTER COMPONENT REPLACEMENT. THERE IS A MANUAL RELEARN YOU CAN TRY BEFORE HAVING TO TAKE IT TO THE DEALER FOR REPROGRAMMING. THE RELEARN IS AS FOLLOWS: DIS-CONNECT BATTERY FOR 5 MINUTES. RECONNECT BATTERY,TURN KEY ON BUT DO NOT START!! WAIT APPROX. 20 MINUTES OR WAIT UNTIL THEFT LIGHT GOES OFF. TURN KEY TO OFF FOR 5 SECONDS THEN ATTEMPT TO START. IF IT STILL WONT START LEAVE KEY IN RUN POSITION FOR AN ADDITIONAL 20 MINUTES OR UNTIL THEFT LIGHT GOES OUT THEN ATTEMPT START AGAIN. MAKE SURE BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED!!! IF THIS DOESNT WORK IT WILL HAVE TO GO TO DEALERSHIP FOR REPROGRAMMING WITH TECH 2 SCANNER.
