This is probably referring to your CMOS or BIOS battery, if you open the PC you should be able to see a little quarter sized flat battery, like a large watch battery or camera battery. pull that out and use the number on top of the battery to find a replacement.

You should still be able to use your PC in the meantime but the system clock may not function correctly until the battery is replaced. (this may cause problems with security certificates and some online banking websites, etc.)

System batery refers to a watch bater on the mother board used to keep time
it is as easy to eplace as a watch batery

Instructions Difficulty: Challenging Things You’ll Need:

  • Replacement Battery
  • Electronic Or Printed Backup Copy Of CMOS Settings
  • Backup Utility
  • Grounding Wrist Strap
  • Phillips Screwdriver
Restore the CMOS settings Step1If you've never made a backup copy of your CMOS settings (by using a backup utility program such as Norton Utilities or by printing a hardcopy out on paper), look them up in the printed documentation for your system or call the vendor of your PC. Restoring your CMOS settings from a backup will help determine whether the battery is the problem. Step2If you're using a backup utility to restore the CMOS settings, insert the emergency startup disk and follow the prompts. Step3Use the Setup utility that's built into your PC's BIOS to re-enter your CMOS settings manually. Restart your computer and wait for a screen that tells you what key or key combination to press for Setup. Step4If re-entering or restoring your CMOS settings solves your problem, then it's possible your battery is fine and the settings were corrupted by a virus or some other anomaly. If, however, your PC "forgets" the CMOS settings you just re-entered or restored after you turn the machine off (and then back on), you probably have a bad battery. Locate the dead battery Step1Turn off your PC. Step2Before opening your PC case, put on a grounding wrist strap to prevent discharging static electricity onto any sensitive components. In fact, throughout this procedure it's a good idea to frequently touch something metal (other than your PC) that's resting on the ground, to make sure you discharge any static electricity. Step3Open the PC. For most PCs, this entails removing a few screws with a Phillips screwdriver and sliding the case off. Step4Locate the battery on your PC's motherboard. This is trickier than it sounds because PC manufacturers have used many different types of batteries for CMOS settings. The most common are lithium, like the kind in watches, but they could also be a pair of AA batteries. Or they could look like two cylinders encased in red plastic: a silver box or a red and black box. Step5Draw a picture of the battery, showing its exact position on the motherboard. Remove and replace the battery Step1Examine the battery carefully to see how it's attached to the motherboard. Most likely, the battery is attached by a clip or with Velcro. Some older PCs might have the battery soldered to the motherboard. Unless you're confident with a soldering iron, don't attempt to replace one of these. Step2After you've removed the battery, take it to an electronics store to match it with a replacement. Step3Replace the new battery in exactly the same position as the old one, referring to your drawing (see Warning). Step4Restart your PC and re-enter or restore the CMOS settings.

16.3 volts is the high side of the charge rate and will result in boiling the battery dry. Have a load test done on the battery as I fear you have a dead cell that is not holding the charge

I have a Maserati dashboard message that I don't know what it means.


The vehicle computer can sense low voltage, so is warning the driver the care is about to fail. Replace the battery with a new one and you should be good to go. The computer will reset once the power is cut off during the battery switch, and reboots during the new battery power up.;

Fuel pump fixed, turns over but still won't start


I don't know much about these but on my daughters 1.0i polo I had to reset the throttle with a computer after disconnecting the battery for a while.
If you are sure you have a spark and fuel getting to the plugs then the fault will lie with timing and fuel mixture.

I don't know how whatever accessories you have are hooked up but,

When I would run two batteries for my stereo in my car I had it connected to the auxilary battery. The isolators kinda **** because they are to send more power from the charging system to the battery that needs the most charge. They do not "isolate" as in makeing the system use one battery while not draining the other.

What I did was to hook a solenoid (mine was aftermarket but I think the old style Ford starter solenoids that bolted to a fender will do the same) inline of the battery cable so when my key was off one battery would be cut off from the other. That way I could play the sterio without draining the battery that started the car (the radio was on a rocker switch for when I needed to kill power).

If the battery is dead, that should be your first clue. You need to diagnose your charging system. If the battery is dead, it is also EXPECTED that you won't get any codes. If the charging system voltage goes below 9 volts, all kinds of weird things will happen. Computers don't like it much when you put them on a crash diet. :)

The first thing I would suspect is a bad alternator.
