Why won't my Pride Go-Go Elite Traveller batteries charge using a trickle charger? The batteries are new, but my charger quit working.


Hi Robert , can you clarify what you mean by a trickle charger ?, any chance of a photo of the charger ?

using a standard gel battery charger , the charger will charge the batteries in question and once fully charged, the charger will trickle charge the batteries.. This is a standard operation and recommended by battery makers...

Regards
Rob

How to access and charge battery softail classic 2005


Hi Anonymous, remove the seat to access battery and the best way to recharge a battery especially one that has very low voltage or is completely dead is with a low amp trickle charger. If you are in a deep sleep would your rather be awaken with soft gentle nudges or a swift kick in the rear. Have nice day.

I just bought a new battery for my 2005 Softail Deluxe; I road yesterday (10/20 miles) as I was finishinng the run, the bike shut off; could this mean the battery was not fully charged? Will a trickle...


Good idea put it on a trickle charge, however, the battery had enough charge init to start the bike initially, and the bike should have charged the battery after 10-20 miles, worth checking the charge rate to the battery from the rectifier,

I bought an MPV5 used. Batteries won't charge. Charger light is green after 24 hours...slight power surge then dies. The seller said it hadn't been plugged in for a long time. I also noticed the batteries...


Lets solve this, one question at a time ....
First your batteries are not charging,This may be because of it siting for too long without a charge.The batteries may be so dead that your charger cannot reconize them. dont losse hope there are ways to check your batteries and charger with out spending alot of money on a tech coming over.
1) Unplug and remove your batteries from the chair
2) Find your self a charge that trickle charge
(Note: If you have a batterie charger ,trickle charge is the lowest set charge)
3) Trickle charge each batterie to about 50%
4) Install batteries back on to chair
5) Plug in chair charger
The chairs charger should come on ,and that right there tells you that you have a good charger!
The batteries that came with this chair are not bad and are considered ok to use .These type of batteries are what you call maintenance batteries ,which your always having to check if the leaking or need water.The gell type batteries are what they call non-maintenance.That you dont have to always look after but are more money.Thats why they recommend the gells so that the user doesn't have to work on there chair.

I hope that was helpful ,Happy Riding

How do I get to the battery? can I charge it with jumper cables from a car?


Both previous posts are correct. The battery is located under the rider seat. You need to charge it at a low amperage, 1.5 or 2 amps. It will take a while so be patient. Quick charging is bad on the battery. The best bet is to buy a trickle charger such as a Battery Tender and plug it in often. It will keep your battery at its peak. The more your battery drais or receives quick charges, the faster you will have to buy a new battery.

Batteries dead


Hi,
You bike is equipped with a 12 volt battery. The best way to charge these is to use an automatic charger that will shut off when battery is fully charged. I usually charge mine on the 2 amp setting (trickle).
Depending on the charger, you may need to pick up some smaller clamps as most chargers' clamps are too big to clamp on motorcycle battery posts.
Hope this helps

Battery and cold storage of car for several months


a good battery will hold a charge through the winter if disconected from the vehicle adn left fully charged.
you may want to look into a battery monitoring charger, it is a trickle charger that is designed for long term use, it monitors battery volts and turns on when needed.

also put carpet squares or cardboard under the tires if you are parking on concreet. this will help prevent dry rot and flat spots
