sounds like you need to get the battery checked as well as wire connections between battery and starter. 12.52 is marginal as when you crank the starter the voltage probably goes below 10.0 volts and when you jump it the voltage is at the proper level to allow cranking.

My 2000 pontiac grand prix needs a jump every time i get a jump it dies out is the alternator bad

a few tests to see if alternator has gone are. start the car and the red light should go off on the dash. start the car and take a lead off the battery ( the car should still run ) and start the car in the dark.turn head lights on then hit the gas,the lights should go brighter as you rev...hope this helps

Will not start unles you jump start

Check the starter/solenoid. If you have a weak starter or solenoid, it could need the extra voltage put into your electrical system when doing a jump start.

Why does my ignition module keep going out on my 2005 Bonneville?

Frequent ignition module failure can be caused from an over-voltage condition from the voltage regulator. Check your charging voltage at the battery when the vehicle is running, and it should not be higher than 14.3VDC.

Also, improper jump-starting using a "booster" style jump-starter can cause an ignition module to fail. Did the failure occur after jump-starting? Try using a standard trickle-charger in the future instead of jump-starting your car from a booster, or simply use jumper cables attached to another vehicle or fully-charged battery.

Be sure that the voltage at the primary side of your ignition coil is no more than 6.5VDC. If it is, replace the ignition resistor.

Battery keeps losing voltage

Before going to procedure below, lightly rap on all relays with a screwdriver handle, a sticking relay can cause all kinds of problems.
Here is the test procedure for determining battery or alternator problem after requiring a jump start. Note, requires a voltmeter [$3.50 at Harbor Freight]
1] Check battery voltage on non-start vehicle. Will probably be under 12V. Verify good clean connections, look for cracked corroded or loose terminals.
2] Jump start. Note, always have the jumper vehicle running when performing a jump start, sounds basic but I actually had a friend who argued it should not, meaning he would be jumping with less voltage & could strand both vehicles.
3] With jumper cables removed, engine running, check voltage at battery. It should be 12.8V to 13.7V. If below 12.8V the alternator or voltage regulator are suspect. If in the range, the battery is either dead, low on water or in need of a full charge. If over 14.7V the voltage regulator is not functioning properly.
4] Failing those problems, with the vehicle shut off & the doors closed, disconnect the battery ground cable, put a 12V test light between the battery negative & a known good ground. If it lights, something, like an interior or glovebox lamp, is staying on. Remove fuses 1 at a time to find the problem circuit.

Can you tell me what battery is needed for an 18HP It1000 Craftsman riding mower? We suspect someone installed a battery with insufficient cranking power for 18HP engine.

I can tell you this. I have a 17 HP Craftsman and the battery specs are:
28 amp hour
230 Cold Cranking Amps, minimum
My case size is U1R, but yours may differ.
A good auto supply store can probably look up your specs.
If your current battery is less than this, you may be correct about someone installing an undersized battery.
How does your engine crank if you use a car to jump it?
Let me know.

2001 bmw wagon , last week would not start , could not jump either . 1. checked battery ? it was good 2. replace starter 3. worked for 2 days 4 now same symptons again will not start or...

it is a possibility that it is bad or the ignition switch. cause a bad ignition switch will not send voltage for starter to start. an ignition switch handles a bout 50% of all voltage needs. the safety switch does it start in nuetral, or any other gear! if it starts in any other gear then it is out of adjustment. or needs replaced. first check and see if you have voltage from battery to starter, if so, check small ignition wire at starter. either wire could be bad also.

"JUMPED' time. Fixed. when started back up, it

This sounds like a low voltage issue. Check the system voltage while running, need 13.8 to 14.6 or so. Have the battery terminals cleaned and load test the battery. If the battery voltage drops too low during startup, that can cause the clock to loose it's time.
