Battery will not take charge, but can jump start and it runs, but does not keep charge

Possible charging coil under the flywheel issue, or with the retifier, there is a tool called a negative shunt, this will quickly tell you if there is any charge to the battary from the engine

HELP with my problem to my Question and added details

A good hot battery shoulde do it. Have you had any problems with the security system? That's all that should keep it from starting now. Have you put a socket on the crank bolt to make sure the engine is not seized and turns freely?
Good luck.

I had the car in storage for 35 days. Upon startup, battery was dead. I took the dead battery out(only 1 year old) and put in a good battery which started the car, while the car was running good I took out...

You recycle the old dead battery

Have no idea why you even put that back in

Common sense & your friend is correct

You don't disconnect anything on today's
vehicles, even with the key on

Put in a new battery,start the car, warm it up
& drive it for awhile & maybe you will get lucky
& it will complete some of the drive cycles & run some
monitors ,you know nothing about & it will be fine

If not, your mechanic friend should be about to stop
by with the bosses scan tool & help you out

Your battery probably did not survive the storage period and now will not accept or hold a charge. Off hand I would say that you need to replace the battery for now, and when the mower is put into storage again, charge the battery from time to time.

1993 GSX-R 750 (Starter won't turn engine)

I would suggest a compression test, but you cant get it to spin over.
Spinning it with your pinky doesnt sound right though, as the cams turning etc will cause some resistance. have you tried roll starting? is the battery in correctly red\positive?
Try a test light on the starter cable, to make sure the solenoid works

The car has been sitting in storage for two years. When we put it in storage we took out the battery and got it ready to sit.After putting the battery back in we can not start it. We tried to jump it. What...

assuming no electrical components work, try a newer battery or hooking the old one to a charger and letting it charge up for a while. batteries will still discharge when disconnected.
