SOURCE: Schumacker battery charger problem?

You are charging. The meter corresponds to the level of charge in the battery. Try setting to 10 A for 4 hours, battery should be half-way up. To determine if battery id dead.. leave battery off charger once it is fully charged...test with a voltmeter after 10 min.....battery should still be above 12v...after1 hour it should still be above 12v...if not battery is spent.

SOURCE: Battery voltage tests fine but 06 corolla will not start

Voltage doesn't start cars ..Amperage does. Try to jump start and if it still clicks then your starter is suspect.

SOURCE: Pride Sundancer. Batteries will not charge. both

batterys may be to low for charger to pick them back up.Sounds like new batterys to me .dobble check that charger just in case by volt testing the neg and positive wires on one battery ,When its hooked up .then do the other to see if power is getting where its suppose to be. Your checking for volt changed .Battery charger checks out good replace batterys that should do it.

Hope I was of some help have a good day.

SOURCE: I have a countax K18

there is a coil under the flywheel that is supposed to charge the battery...if you look at the engine there should be a wire coming from under the flywheel that is supposed to go to either a diode or a regulator and then to the battery...you can put a meter on this lead and one on the engine ground to see if it is putting out voltage...you may need to put the meter on AC VOLTS as the voltage may be AC...if there is a regulator(it looks like a heatsink module,square with fins on it..).this may be defective. The ac coming out of the stator(this is the tech term for the alternator) is present..(it will vary with eng speed)..then the regulator is probably bad

SOURCE: My Suzuki gsx400E -82 doesn't

Sounds like the starter is dragging, when the bike gets hot the starter barely turns. And those bikes don't actually have an alternator. It's like a magneto system that keeps the battery from draining, but doesn't actually charge the battery. I would take the starter off and have it tested.

I have an 03 Chev malibu. I just put a new battery in it. She won't start without a boost.runs fine afterwards.if I let her sit for a bit I will need a boost again..please help


New battery could be faulty or alternator not working.
If nothing happens when you turn the key,to check battery to determine its state of charge. Many starters won't do a thing unless there is at least 10 volts available from the battery. A low battery does not necessarily mean the battery is the problem, though. The battery may have been run down by prolonged cranking while trying to start the engine. Or, the battery's low state of charge may be the result of a charging system problem. Either way, the battery needs to be recharged and tested.If the battery is low, the next logical step might be to try starting the engine with another battery or a charger. If the engine cranks normally and roars to life, you can assume the problem was a dead battery, or a charging problem that allowed the battery to run down. If the battery accepts a charge and tests okay, checking the output of the charging system should help you identify any problems there.

Changed battery and altenator but my kia 2000 sportage still won't hold a charge


The battery is charged by the alternator. With the engine running, a voltmeter (not a test light) should be connected to the (+) red lead) and (-) (black lead) post of the battery.
Expect to see the meter indicate 13.5 to 14.5 Volts DC. If you see LESS that this voltage, the alternator is not powering the car's electrical & ignition systems and not charging the battery. The battery is doing all the work, and it will be drained in a fairly short time.
This can be the result of a defective alternator, poor or incorrect electrical connections, open fuse, open "fusible link", etc. Until 13.5 to 14.5 Volts DC is present at the battery post while the engine is running, the battery will NOT be charged.
The battery should have slightly more than12 Volts DC available with nothing connected to it. If it is less than 12 Volts with nothing connected, it is discharged. If it is 10 volts or less, it is completely discharged and may have a shorted cell (even if new!). Either way, the battery should be charged with a home charger, trickle charger, or even connected to another car to be charged. The length of time required is determined by the level of discharge it was in when tested. When the battery is at 12 or more, it is considered charged and can be reconnected to your car. Perform the voltage checks again with the engine running.

Your battery may have a dead cell, take it out and test it, use a charger and a volt meter, after the charge if the volts are still low then replace it, or you could take it to a parts store and have them test for the dead cell.

I drove my 2001 Windstar to work with no problem, went out to go to lunch and the engine would not start. Put battery charger on it, but it says it is fully charged.


check and clean the battery posts first. Do the headlights work ok, and dim when you turn key to start?
Any clicking?

Try staarting in neutral. turn key to on, apply brake, shift to neutral, try to start.
