YOU NEED TO TRICKLE CHARGE THAT BATTERY TILL FULLY CHARGED AT A RATE OF 1 TO 2 AMPERS IF THE BATTERY WONT HOLD THE CHARGE YOU WILL NEED A NEW BATTERY THE NEW BATTERY WILL NEED TRICKLE CHARGING AT THE SAME AMPER RATING FOR AT LEAST 16 HOURS THE REASON WHY YOUR LIGHT WHENT OUT IS NOT ENOUGH POWER TO SUPPORT EVERY THING FROM THE BATTERY

97 firebird, won't turn over by key, headlights going up and down like crazy


look at the battery first.. there are two connections.. one a plus and one a minus,, check and clean both of these first make sure they are snug not loose and somewhat clean..check for a good charge also. these batteries go dead quickly in cold weather..usally when the headlights go dead the battery is dead also..(need to charge or jumpstart) if you have a charger connect it and let charge for a while(if not a second running car connected for a while will do) see if the battery is good, if not replace it.. repost findings..

Car wont start. just makes a clicking sound. 97 Buick Riviera


You may need to have your battery checked. A weak battery will cause clicking when the key is turned. Many auto parts stores will test your battery for dead cells for free.

Had starting problems and cleaned terminal wires, car started. Yesterday same problem, adjusting wires did not work. Had battery jumped, car started. I warmed up car for 5 minuted before driving. Car...


I would say that you need to replace the alternator. The car was running on the batteries power. When you drove the car, it ran the battery completely dead.

My 1997 chrysler town and country van was running fine until this afternoon. After I stopped and pulled the key out I heard a clicking sound under the hood (around the fuse box). Since then it won't start....


It is highly possible that battery is just dead. This also happened to me on my 97 Jeep Cherokee. I started it in the morning with no issue what so ever, then when i went to go start it again a short while later it was the same issue your having. I tried to jumpstart it and nothing. The clicking noise your hearing is from the starter itself which is perfectly normal when you have a dead battery. That is why your lights dim when you try to start it. It is because when your trying to turn over the starter your having a power drain from whatever is left in the almost dead battery but it doesn't have enough power to turn the starter. Also that is why when you tried to jumpstart it and it didn't work, the battery is just too dead to accept the charge passing through it. Replace the battery and all will be fine. A good name brand battery costs roughly $70-$100 depending on the brand of the battery. I personally have had nothing but good luck with Duralast and Interstate batteries. Good luck. Happy motoring.

Cadillac escalade ext will not start dic message says service battery charging system i'm reading 12 volts on battery but it act like a dead battery not charging system


A battery can read 12 volts yet be weak in cold cranking amps, try a jumpstart and if that works have your battery load tested. Im betting your gonna find the battery fails the load test, meaning it needs to be replaced..

2002 buick lesabre won't jumpstart. Car ran fine


There are a couple of factors here:
  1. If you noticed the car getting harder to start when warm lately, it could be the starter is bad; a bad starter will work when cold but once it heats up, will require more and more power to turn over
  2. Bad battery; a dead battery won't turn the car over even with a jump; it would need a slow charge to work again; even sealed batteries have caps that can be pried open to do a cell check (battery cell checkers inexspensive at the auto parts store) if you have 1 dead cell, the battery needs replacement
  3. Corrosion; just because the posts and cables may be clean at the battery, doesn't mean there's no corrosion on the other ends of the cables
Hope this answers your question and gives you a good place to start. All the best.

Motorcycle wont start


If cranking is slow it could be a sign of a 'near to dead' battery.
When cranking on its battery there is a too low voltage and weak or no sparking.
When jump starting or pushing the bike, there is a good spark and the engines fires up.

Check also the spark plugs! And carburettors cleaniness

Car is dead


Well to start with the car would start if hooked up to another for jumpstarting.....This is what you should do....First before hooking up cables turn on your headlights ,,probably they didnt turn on cause of dead battery...turn them off and hook up cables ,prior to trying to start, turn on lights again if still no lights which is what i predict means faulty connection either with cables or corroded or loose terminals attatched at battery...clean and tighten as necesary and repeat procedure....Good Luck

Starting problem


Sounds like you might have cooked the battery. Try with a new one, start the bike and see how it runs. Hopefully you didnt fry anything else.
