Question about Mazda MPV

1 Answer

I got a Schumacher fully automatic onboard battery charger/maintainer with 4 amps, 60 hz, 120 vac input, and 12 vdc, 1.5 amp output. Can you please tell me how to connect this charger to my battery. The instructions that come on the side of the product (charger) are pretty unclear. For instance it does not say how the red line/positive line of charger is to be connected to which post of the car battery (positive or negative). Request clear instructions. Thank you most kindly and may you all have a most beautiful day!

Hi.
basically, with any charger, the positive (red +ve) wire goes to the positive post.
the negative (black -ve) goes to the negative post.

12 volt 6 amps to quickly charge it from dead/flat or very low.

12 volt 2 amps as a trickle charge to maintain the battery when you are not using the vehicle for an extended time.

While driving down road my kia 2002 spectra just died and now when I turn key it just clicks and all the dash lights and radio go out


was there any warning lights before dieing ?it would seem to be an alternator/charging problem,is the serpent belt ok? try jump starting or changing the battery, if she starts then check for ignition charge light staying on, if she still wont start/turnover could be a starter motor problem or a jammed alternator, if she wont turn over on a fully charged battery or jump leads remove the serpent belt that drives the alternator/AC /power steering etc try starting again if ok switch off and try turning each pulley driven by the serpent belt by hand the only one you should not be able to turn is the main crankshaft pulley, if any of the others are hard or impossible to turn you have found the problem

I own a 1990 Mercury Cougar Bostonian... what is the correct size battery recharger for this car? Schumacher is the best brand I think. Thank you in advance.


Most chargers have settings for different size and type of batteries and also have regulators to prevent overcharging. Don't buy the very cheapest, but the $60 (approx) units are good choices for most hobbiest uses.

How to open hood?


If you can access a battery charger that plugs into the cigar lighter that would give you enough power to operate electric locks. Something similar to this.

Need to purchase a battery charger, what type do you recommend?


It really depends on what you are going to use it for. I use a small charger when I just want to maintain a battery. I use mine also for keeping the battery up while I am performing computer diagnostics on a vehicle without the engine running.
The charger I use is a DSR Pro Series Model PSC 12500A It is fully automatic and has a 125 Amp boost. It is very compact and easy to use. It has LED's that tell you the condition of your battery, the charging rate, etc.
I purchased mine from Matco Tools (Matco part number MIC1200) It is available through many local parts suppliers as well as online automotive parts and equipment suppliers.

What is the amps in the battery for the Audi 2001 Allroad so I may charge it


I am not sure you are asking what you really want to know

This will be a 12 volt dc system
The battery AMPERAGE will be labeled on the battery generally some where around 750 to 900 Cold Cranking Amps
Amps will have nothing to do with charging the battery
A battery CHARGER will have a MAXIMUM amp output Most lf them are 4 to 10 amps on a slow charge

Meter Explanation


You are correct on all accounts. A high number means you dying battery is sucking more juice from the Schumacker. A low number means the battery is not as thirsty. That's how I always think of how to read the meter on mine. Slow charge is a better, deeper charge. The quick charge will get you going, but you should maybe follow it up using the normal mode - car alternator and prolonged drive time. I never use quick charge, personally.
