Have you load tested the battery? I understand you have a 12 volt reading, but that means nothing if no load has been applied during the reading. It sounds to me like a bad battery...

Battery and or charger won't work. Charged a full 18 hrs. Help

Possible suspects are:
1. A severely drained battery.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

Battery/charging system light is on

According to "If the battery light is on the battery is not charging. The fuel injection, ignition and all the electrics on your car require a threshold voltage about 9.5 volts or the systems don't operate well. It could be a bad or unsecured battery ground cable between the battery and chassis or chassis and engine. Turn on the ignition switch to the on but not run position do you see an icon on the instrument panel representing a battery, if you do not see this battery icon the alternator is not seeing power to allow it to charge. Start the engine does the battery icon go out. Put a volt meter across the battery terminals with the engine off, at rest the battery voltage should be 12.6 volts if the battery is fully charged. Now get a friend to start the car while you watch the voltmeter, the voltage reading across the battery should read approximately 14.6 volts if the alternator is charging correctly. At the back of the alternator the large wire goes straight back to the battery it should have power all the time, at least one other wire with the plug disconnected at the back of the alternator should have power with the ignition key switched on. There is a large fuse link in the engine compartment the says ALT it protects the alternator check it is OK. Another thought, there are a lot of rebuilt alternators that are bad quality, with the engine running hit the alternator and see if it then turns out the light (if so alternator is bad. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website There is also a company that independent auto repair shops buy their information from that the same information inexpensively to do it yourselfers. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate - patrick mannion"

My generac generator wont start,making a clicking noise and battery is fully charged

Have somone hold the start button while you measure the voltage across the battery. If it is less than 11 volts, then the battery is bad.

Why is my battery not charging on my Motorcycle

With a fully charged battery connected, read the voltage across the positve (+) and negative(-) with a digital meter. It should be about 12.0-12.4volts DC. Start the bike and again check the voltage with the engine running. The reading should be 13-13.5 volts which means your charging circuit is okay. If still reading around 12 volts the charging system is not working, but if reading higher than 13.5v you have a serious charging fault that is putting too much power to your battery and frying it.

Suziki Boulevard C90 wont start, when hitting the ignition nothing happens, no power, no light, nothing are on, it's never put the ignition on.

1. with a voltmeter check across the battery terminals and see that it has about 12-12.6 volts. If it does not then charge or replace the battery first.
2. Check the fuses; most bikes have a main fuse coming off of the battery or in the fuse box.
3. If the battery and fuses appears ok, check for loose or corroded terminals. Also look for connectors and wires that are corroded and/or have a melted look.
4. If everything before this checks out ok, check for 12 power at the back of the ignition switch.
5. At this point it is best that you have a wiring diagram to determine which wires carry power away from the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch on and continue to track the power wires to where ever they go. When the ignition switch is turned on it should have some wires measuring 12 volts coming off of the switch or the switch is bad. Continue to track wires until they reach there source or a point that no longer has 12 volts and that will be the problem area.

I dont think my yamaha gas powered golf cart is charging properly. How can I trouble shoot this problem?

With the engine running at about half power/speed, put a volt meter across the battery terminals. The meter should read somewhere around 14.5 volts. If it is below 13 volts it is definitely not charging. Consider that the battery, unless new, could also be failing.

I had a the battery light on what does it means

The battery light means your alternator is not charging, so if you continue to drive the vehicle your battery will eventually drain and the vehicle will stop.

You can test this by putting a volt meter across the battery posts. A fully charged battery should read 12.6 volts. Then start the engine and the voltage should increase to 13.5 to 15 volts. If you do not get this increase in voltage, then the alternator is not charging, which can be either the wiring to the alternator or the alternator itself being bad. Good luck :O)

Wont start ,no turn over ,just lights and horn

I would suspect a bad battery. I'd take the battery out and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them to "load test" the battery for you. If you don't have a parts store that will do this for you, charge your battery fully. Then put a volt meter across the battery terminals, red meter lead to positive, black meter lead to negative. The function switch of the meter should be in DC Volts, 25 volt or greater range. The meter should read about 12.8-13.2 volts on a fully charged battery. Now turn on the ignition switch and press the start button. If the battery voltage drops below 10 volts, the battery is bad.

2002 Chevy Suburban...Power/Battery?

Make sure battery is fully charged, try jump starting it, if it starts, and you can get a volt meter, put the test leads on the battery terminals, red positive black negative, have the dial on the meter at 12volts DC.
With the motor running, the meter should read between 14 and 15 volts, below that, the alternator isn't charging and needs replacing.
If it still clicks with a jump, the starter solenoid is bad and needs replacing. The solenoid is on top of the starter, which has to be removed to fix it.
