Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have ase1052 and I let the pos. And neg Leads touch as I disconnected from the battery and now the charger will do nothing,not even a hum from the transformer . I have 123 volts coming in to the slide switch but no meter reading. I have continuity to one of the dual rectifiers and one is open. Am I on the right track?I also jumped the circuit breaker to no avail. I got 23 years from my last Schumacher without a doubt a superb quality product. Thanks so much...............Aubrey

You have most likely destroyed the output semiconductors by the shorting out of those wires. Indeed i would suspect those rectifiers, if you have AC Voltage and NO DC voltage, after the bridge rectifier, then the Bridge is faulty, Basically a Charger is a Transformer, the AC is put through Rectifiers/Capacitors to make it to DC, this then goes to Conditioning circuitry, that drops and smooths out the DC required to charge the battery. There MAY be fuses in the Secondary too Check.

How do you give a jump start to someone using a 2007 Dodge Charger?


The underhood connections can work by themselves...POS to POS, and NEG to NEG...sometimes dirty/weak connections do not allow the power to transfer fully from the underhood connections...if this is the case then you need to connect directly to the battery in trunk for full power charge...again POS to POS, and NEG to NEG...hope this helps

My 77 Chevy c30 has no power. Jumped started it and drove it home. I turned it off then tried to restart it. No power no lights. nothing. Battery is good. An u help will be appreciated.


If the battery is good you will need to follow flow. Test light is the easiest to use. First hook light to ground and touch pos terminal,lights good next touch pos battery cable end, lights good. Next follow pos cable to starter pos terminal,lights good. Next hook test light to bat pos teminal,touch neg terminal,lights good. Then touch engine block, lights good ground. Next move test light clamp back to ground/neg side and touch alt pos terminal,lights good.if all that tests good, if all good move inside and check for power at ign switch pos term if at any time you dont find power you have wiring issue that needs to be addressed. Let me know what you find. Russ

Red light on charger flashes. battery doesnt seem to charge.


If the red light is flashing rapidly it means that your charger has determined that your battery pack is in need of replacement and a safety circuit will not allow it to be charged. You may have an actual fault in the pack OR it may just mean that you have allowed the pack to discharge below the manufacturer's recommendations and the safety circuit has been fooled into thinking that the pack is defective. You need to decide which scenario is more likely correct. Using a DC voltmeter, determine if the battery pack has any voltage at all and which connections are positive and negative. If there is zero voltage, then you probably should go shopping and send your current battery to a recycler. If the battery pack does show some voltage, that is a good sign. TRY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! You can attempt to partially charge the battery pack (while not in the charger and not in the tool) by using test leads to connect it pos-to-pos and neg-to-neg to a fully charged battery of similar voltage/amperage. Only connect them together for a couple of minutes. Remove the leads and test with the DC voltmeter again to see if voltage in the questionable battery pack has increased by more than a volt or two. If so, it is still taking a charge. Move it back to its charger to see if there is now sufficient voltage to not trigger the safety circuit and allow it to charge normally. Wear eye protection. Don't cross leads. Don't try this on an obviously damaged battery or one that feels hot.

Took battery out of my 1993 buick riviera,put back in now starts then dies


how did you disconnect the battery, pos first then neg ? or neg first then pos ? try starting it and after started, hold your rpm at 1500, for about two minutes, then if still running, drive it to get to.speeds of 40 for about 15 minutes, this is to relearn if not, disconnect your battery, take the pos and neg cable and touch them together and hold for about a minute, then Connect them back, neg.first.then pos, then follow steps above to.relearn.

The charger doesn't do anything. I've charged the charger then hooked it up to the battery (pos on pos, neg on neg) then tried to start the car. No reaction whatever. Is there something else I


It's possible you may have a poor connection from your car to your car battery. Check to make sure both battery terminals are on your battery tight. Tighten them if necessary, then try again. If either one was loose, that should fix the problem. Then there may be nothing wrong with your battery charger.

ENGINE FAN


turn on a/c does the fan turn on? unplug fan connection mesure voltage comming to the fan it should be 12+ volts. If not it is a fuse or relay. Get some wire that is long enough to reach the battery to the fan plug (have a buddy help) place the 2 wires on the battery connecters 1 pos 1 neg then take the other ends of the wires and touch the wires to the 2 leads in the fan connection. neg wire to the black wire. pos wire to the red. if fan does not come on then the motor is bad. do not worry about touching the battery you will NOT get shocked

Need to charge 12v car battery


Hello,

If battery is out of the vehicle, connect positive lead to positive terminal and negative lead to negative terminal.

If battery is in the vehicle, the proper way to connect leads depends on if it's a negative-grounded or a positive-grounded vehicle.

Here is a link to the manual for this charger.
Click where it says "Get This manual" (it's free).

Scroll down to pages 4 and 5 and it give detailed instructions on the proper way to connect leads and a lot more. It's a good manual to keep for future use.

I hope this helps.
