1996 lexus es300 not holding charge


Make sure the battery is good. U can charge it and disconnect it from car overnight and see if it works the next day. If it is still fine then the car has a drain. If no good, then the battery is bogus and cannot hold a charge.

U have something in wiring that is draining the battery after shutdown. Need an ammeter. Hook it up to the battery and wait about a half hour. Then notice draw on meter. Start removing fuses until you locate the line that is responsible for the draw. Then check out each and every item on that trunk line.

725 Series Briggs&Stratton Engine Model No. 917.370930. Will not hold a charge so bought new charger. Same problem. Do I need to replace the battery or could it be something else. Thanks. Jo Ann


Hi Jo Ann:
I's suggest that you try charging the battery fully, then leave it disconnected overnight. Check the charge the next morning. If it is down, it's time for a new battery. How old is the battery?

My old 611 dosent hold the battery charge for long even though I have put in a new battery


An in car charger will not charge as well as the mains, when charging for the first time you should use the mains, and charge for at least 8 hours. If it didn't charge correctly, it will be the same low charge all the time, as the battery has a memory that makes it charge the same each time. Try charging from the mains, you might be lucky.

Acer 5315 Battery cHarging Problems


All rechargeable batteries have a limited life, and as they age their charge capacity reduces over time and you get shorter and shorter time between charges.
Recharage batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and batteries over 2 years old are considered nearly worn out. Worn out batteries won't charge up at all.

Battery not charging


Sounds like it may be the FSB. I had the same sort of problem, though my Aspire was only a few months old and therefore covered under Acer's warranty, but I also have after sales repair insurance too. Either way, I would strongly suggest that you get an engineer to take a look

How to charge up my new battery


Let it charge for a good 12 hours before running the machine, basically overnight. The power management system will recognize that this is a new battery, and is programed to start the initial charge sequence for a new battery. It is supposed to do this whether the machine is in use or not, but I recommend 12 hours just to be on the safe side.
