What is the issue

Only Delco Batteries have an indictor eye,
that I'm aware of

That won't have anything at all to do with
jumping it

You use a volt meter

You don't do any testing or use a car that isn't at
12.5 Volts or more

That is your key to when to charge it

You never jump a dead battery unless
you want to risk getting hurt

08 pt cruiser .when I jump start the battery the alarm goes off ?

I assume you got a theft alarm. It going off when the battery is jumpped or reconnected is normal operation. If you're having to jump your battery often it's an indication that either the battery or perhaps the alternator may have issues. Start with a battery and charging system diagnosis.

What does error code 88888 mean on a 2001 Chrysler 300m?

Multiple clicking indicates a weak battery. Get a slow charger to bring it up gently or, if in a hurry get someone to do a jump start. Once running you will need to check gauges for a charging problem. If no lights indicate a bad charging system, you will need a new battery.

2011 chysler town and country, no power to van . The battery is charged

How are you testing the battery?
Are you using a meter on the battery posts?
Do you get the same reading if you test across the battery cables?
Have you measured the battery voltage while someone tried to start the car?
Have you removed the cables and cleaned the posts?
When you jump start the car are you using the negative battery cable for a connection or are you using the frame or engine block?
If so that would indicate a bad connection between the battery and the engine ground.
Measure from the negative post and the engine block. It should be 0 volts.

I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring Coupe Limited. I drove mi car around in town. When we shut it off and come out the store it won't start. We had to get a jump twice. Towards the evening we shut our car...

Replace the battery first! That acid will corrode everything it touches. Once the battery is replaced, you can test if the alternator is working properly.

Car wont start and its not the battery or alternator wont turn over or nothing tried to jump it and it came right on but died little after what is the problem

If it started with a jump, the battery either needs a charge or is bad.

I assume it started with the jump, but when disconnected, it died again. If so, this means it is also not charging which likely means a new alternator.

You can take the battery and alternator to the local parts store for testing (you may need both).

Hope this helps.

Car won't start, acts like battery is dead but it isn't

You didn't provide much info to work with, but I'll give it a try. If you're relying on accessories like the lights and/or stereo to determine that the battery is OK, it could still be bad. The starter draws MUCH more power than the accessories, so the battery could still be too low to start the vehicle. Your problem could also be the ignition switch, starter, solenoid, fuseable link, or a host of other items. I suggest that you start with the battery, though. Check the battery connections for corrosion buildup (crusty white junk), and remove & clean them if necessary. Check and refill the battery with distilled water if yours is a serviceable battery, then try a jump start. If the car starts with a jump, the battery is most likely the problem. While it's running, take it to a shop for a battery test and charging system test (both are free at most shops). If the jump won't start it, I recommend pulling the battery and taking it to a shop for testing.

Hello, I have a 1987 Jeep Wrangler (Sahara) and the jeep will not start. I have taken the battery to an auto parts store and they have indicated that the battery is still good. They advised me to jump...

First, you cannot accurately determine a battery's condition unless it is fully charged, otherwise all test results will be incorrect.
If the battery was in good enough condition to pass testing without a re-charge then it should turn the starter though. You need to check all connections and determine where the power stops. Make sure to verify that the grounds are also good. Begin by testing to make sure or verify that power is getting to the starter (use a volt meter) You should have 12v at the large terminal on the starter and 12v at the small lead next to it when the key is turned to the start position. If you get that, the starter is bad.If you don't, then you need to check the starter relay, neutral safety switch and main fuses in the power distribution center. Ignition switches can fail but not too often. I'd also check to make sure you can turn the engine by hand (with key off) just to make sure it has not locked up.
