My mother put a new battery in her 1986 Grand Maquis in December. She doesn't drive it more than once a week, but the battery keeps going dead. AAA came and wouldn't even jump it because he said the...

I am not familiar with an 86 Grand Marquis. Does it have a V-8 or 6 cylinder engine? Those capacity numbers might be okay for a 6, but would probably be too low for a V-8.

Driving the car once a week is not good, as far as a battery is concerned. Has she had the alternator checked? If you have a multi-meter, you can check the voltage of the battery. A fully charged 12 volt battery should have somewhere around 12.5 to 12.6 volts when the engine is not running. With the engine running, the voltage should be over 13 volts because of the charge coming from the alternator.

Take the car to an auto parts store and have them check the battery and alternator. Most places do this at no charge.

My advice to anyone buying a battery is to get the biggest battery that will fit the space available, while making certain that the + and - terminals are properly oriented. In dealing with batteries, bigger is better.

Hi there!

The battery will run down, because there is no means of charging it.

Is an alternator fitted at the moment for lights etc? If so, you will need to measure the voltage from that, then connect to the battery to charge it.

If there isn't one, look for a motorbike alternator that will fit, or contact the manufacturers for a genuine part.
