Hi ...... Is battery 'hot' when/as it runs or boiling (see bubbles) ? Fully charge battery up and using a multimeter take a reading across the battery when engine is running, meter should show 13.2 - 14 volts ......... a lot more than that and your regulator is defective, turn the meter to alternating current and if it shows a reading your rectifier is defective.
Let us know how you get on.

98 izzu hombre 4.3 battery went dead after a jump it wont start how to fix


The jump start may have blown you alternator or voltage regulator. If so, you have an inactive charging system. You must have a good battery for this to work, Disconnect the positive cable to the battery. Use a battery charger to slow charge your battery. When the battery is fully charged, reattach the positive cable and try to start your engine. If it starts take the truck to a shop or auto zone to have the charging system checked. Fix what is needed.
Any time a vehicle is jump started, do so with the hot battery car not running and its ignition off. If it is running and your car starts one or both charging systems are usually damaged. There may not be damage if it is GM to GM or Ford to Ford, etc., but to be safe, do not let both cars run at the same time when connected.

The battery is not charging in riding time . Battery new fitted after 300 kms Battery become dead what is the solution for this problem ?


Check the charging voltage at the battery with the engine running, it should be about 14 volts if you have a 12 volt system or 7 if you have a 6 volt system. The voltage should be about 20% above the normal battery voltage with the engine running at about twice the idle speed, to charge it.

My brand new battery is dead every morning. but a I can hear the alternator turn on. THere is a wire coming off the Hot terminal of the battery that is pulling a lot of juice. Im looking for a diagram


Large wire is possible hot wire to altenator. Should have B+ voltage at all times. Need to do an amperage draw test and start eliminating sub systems to determine root cause. Also would like to point out a new battery does not mean defective free. would load test to ensure no dead cells first.

Hi my battery went flat on my car and the guy that jump started it put the neg 2 pos etc.. there was smoke and a spark. i tried driving but it kept losing power now it doesnt do anything, Do u have any...


first check the level of water in the battery...if its totally dry, get a new battery and don't even mess with it. if its a maintenance free battery and more than three years old, replace the battery! try to replace with with nothing less than 600 cold chanking amps! i don't know where you live but if you live in a colder climate you'll need probably a 900 cca! first off, when a person jump starts your battery you are not supposed to hook up the negative to the dead battery..you find a good solid piece of metal on the engine to clip it on to.also when you have hooked it up correctly get in the good car and rev it to 2k for about two minutes to give the dead battery a charge then try to start the other car..if it doesnt start it my need a better engine ground. sounds to me though that just buying a new battery would solve all your problems!

BMW X3 Doesn't Start


Might be as simply as a new battery. Remove battery from vehicle and bring it to a repair shop or Sears Auto Center (they are the battery, and charging system Kings) and have them load test the battery. If battery fails purchase a new battery . Once the vehicle is up and running take it back to them and have them test the charging system and determine whether the vehicle has battery drain .

Car wont run.


Does it crank well and all that but with no spark or is the battery just dead? If the battery is dead, it either won't charge while alternator is spinning or the alternator doesn't charge well enough to keep the battery charged well. If it jumps and runs indefinitely, battery is done. If it jumps and dies, alternator is done. If battery and alternator are fine, and you have no spark, you may need a new coil, new spark plug wires if they are worn out and too resistant, pick up coil inside of distributor, or you may have some other ignition system issue.

Most times when an alternator fails, it starts charging less and less till the car won't keep running or it won't start the next time. If the alternator hasn't failed, the battery needs replacing. If your battery is 5 or more years old this is a very good possibility. If your alternator failed and you have killed your battery many times before replace them both. Each time you drain a battery to dead you lose about 10% of its current capacity.

If the battery is fine and engine will not turn, starter may need replacing. Hope I helped.

I want to know,tunning of rd350 engine.wat will be gap between points. because my bike,doesnt start properly,missing the spark.problem with carbon in points


Put a fingernail file between the point contacts then press the contact arm down lightly as you move the file in and out. Filing the points gives a new surface to pitted contacts. The standard gap is .015. I assume you have a timing light to set the timing. For parts, try the link below.

2006 Toyota Rav 4-My battery went from fine to dead in :45. Help.


Answering your questions in order:
  1. No, there's no such device to prevent the car from starting; a battery that requires a jump start would require more than 5 minutes running time to recharge. The battery needs to be charged to work again, (unless it has a dead cell, inexpensive battery testers will confirm). A jump start is still possible but wouild require leaving the jumper cables on for at least 15-30 minutes to provide enough of a charge to start the Rav again. Charging on a battery charger is preferable.
  2. Yes; short trips and lack of use will kill a battery over time.
  3. Yes; Here is a link to the basics of checking a charging system http://www.aa1car.com/library/charging_checks.htm
In summary, most should get more than 3 years out of their battery. You've already determined that the acid levels in the battery are good (most don't even check for fluid levels). Constant charging and discharging will kill a battery and this isn't apparent in your case.
If a battery charger isn't handy, try hooking up the jumper cables and leave the other car running for at least 15 minutes. I hope this answers your questions. Best of luck.

Amilo laptop went off and not turn bk on and not charge


Sounds like your battery has failed. The system runs off the battery all the time, so if the battery won't take a charge, at some point there won't be enough juice in it to start the system. If you know someone with the same system, you can try swapping their battery in - the system should at least start. Most likely, though, you're looking at a new battery.
