It needs a good battery( new)
It can also damage the regulator, jump starting off a larger battery, or running with a stuffed battery.
When the new correct battery it fitted, get a volt meter, and put it across the battery terminals.
It should read 12v engine stopped and about 14v engine running, if it doesnt rise the regulator may be damaged.
The fact it is boiling the battery may just mean the regulator is working, but just cant charge a shorted battery

I got a 69 chevy c10 the starter wire grounded to the exhaust fixd that then it wuldnt charge so changed the voltage regular then starter & silaniod seems like its holdn a charge but still wo


Hey Steve, if you need a jump to start it then every thing is working except battery holding power try putting battery on a SLOW charge for a day then try again when its running check output of altinator with a fully charged battery it should be 12.5-13.5 volts and rise when you rev motor up ,when you jump it im thinking the battery is very low and the altinator is trying to recharge battery and it cant do that in just a few minutes running time or take it on along ride and watch amp gauge .good luck Steve.

Why my car is dead after sitting for 3 days. when first hooked up jumper cables the interior lights came on then went off and wouldnt even turn over


If your battery is dead after 3 days it's probably getting stuffed or else you left something on. Anyway jump starting should work regardless. How good are your jumper leads? You need a pretty heavy set to start a car not those skinny things you get at super cheap auto stores. Hook them up and start car you're jumping off and run it at a high idle for about 5 min then try and start your car. That should put a base charge into your battery and it should go. If not buy a new battery.

Factory alarm started acting up a few days ago, now car won't start. only hear single click noise. managed to jump started it once


The first thing i would do is to have the battery tested, most problems occur due to a weak battery so i would start by having the battery tested first you may have a low weak battery thats why you were able to jump start it . good day.

Hello i have a 2004 expedition , and i have been having issues with my battery draining. about a month and a half ago i went away vacation , came home to start my truck only to relize my battery was dead....


Your solution is a little hard to find too bad they told you to change the alternator. It is a simple fuse you need to change that is blown. on the expetion sometimes there are two one in the fuse box and one under a black cover follow the alternator small wires it should point to the direction of the small i believe 7.5 amp fuse. it was hard to find and i do this for a living. good searching.

We bought a brand new battery one month ago. A few days ago, the car wouldn't start. We jumped it and it started. Today it won't start. When the key is turned, the car makes no noise. No clicking, no...


Check and clean the terminals then boost the car to start it after it starts. Well it's running take off the positive terminal if the car stops running the alternator is no good and you have to replace it.

1990 JEEP Cherokee that won't start even after a new battery


It sounds kind of like you have bad alternator. The alternator uses the engines power to recharge the battery. When you replaced the battery the car ran off battery power untill it died. If the car will run while hooked up to another car while being jump started then the problem is deffinetely the alternator..

Please give a good rating, it is very importat to us..

Hey there JC

Could be the batterey, but I'm leaning toward cables or terminals. From your description its acting like the battery isn't there, even when you jump it.

Questions:
  1. When you jumped it, did the other vehicles engine bog down at all?
  2. Do the head lights work?
  3. Is there any evidence of power? even the dome light?
First steps:
  • Test the voltage on your battery
  • Remove, clean and reattach battery terminals
  • Check the battery cables, good connection on both ends? no breaks, wear, anything odd?

Comment me back with your findings, we'll take it from there
