Battery needs to charge on a slow charge using a charger designed for motorcycle/ATV's It should charge up to and hold around 13 plus volts, then put a load test on the battery to ensure it is going to hold the charge. Motorcycle batteries are notorious for havin one or more dead cells, especially if they have sat for any length of time.

If your battery charges completely and the load test is good, you should check the alternator and regulator for proper operation. If you don't have the capability to do this, any good motorcycle shop can.

IT costs nothing to have a load test done on the battery to check for a dead cell which your problems point to. While the engine is running the alternator will be handling the power requirement but the battery will not supply the power required to start.

91 Cressida won't start


Lead acid batteries can "die" catastrophically. This is actually not all that uncommon. If the battery is new, it should be under warranty. I would take it back, and have them test it. It it fails, which I believe it will, then there is the problem. If it passes, then your alternator is probably bad. The chances of it being your alternator are slim as you did jump the car off, and drive it for a while. If the battery is too weak to start the car, it will not maintain vehicle operation very long without help from the alternator.
