Float mode on a battery charger generally means that battery has been fully charged at a faster rate, and the charger is now maintaining the full charge, without overcharging the battery. You can usually leave the battery connected to the charger indefinitely - float mode will ensure it is always at it's peak charge.

I own a 1990 Mercury Cougar Bostonian... what is the correct size battery recharger for this car? Schumacher is the best brand I think. Thank you in advance.

Most chargers have settings for different size and type of batteries and also have regulators to prevent overcharging. Don't buy the very cheapest, but the $60 (approx) units are good choices for most hobbiest uses.

Car dont start in cold weather should i fix the ignition swtch or what

cold weather seriously weakens the battery. Chemical reactions in the battery simply can't happen with the same efficiency at colder temps. Try charging the battery overnight with a 2amp "trickle charger" before a cold morning start.

How to recharge battery on 2004 New Beetle

Remove the GROUND clamp and use a battery charger on low 2amp setting if battery dead. If partially charged, use 10amp setting. Allow 5 hours minimum to charge.

Static voltage when fully charged will be 12.65 vdc.

Battery is in front of car under a black plastic cover by the left inner fender.

It is dead had battary charger on all night stillnothing 91 cougar xr7 i know its some thing ele

Even at a 2amp charge over 12hours, your battery should be at or near full charge. Battery is likely bad. When charging, was the battery still connected to the car and, what was the actual charging rate?

Battery and cold storage of car for several months

a good battery will hold a charge through the winter if disconected from the vehicle adn left fully charged.
you may want to look into a battery monitoring charger, it is a trickle charger that is designed for long term use, it monitors battery volts and turns on when needed.

also put carpet squares or cardboard under the tires if you are parking on concreet. this will help prevent dry rot and flat spots
