A few reasons why the charger is not charging the battery: The charger itself is not working; The battery will not take a charge, the battery can be 'dead'. If you can, connect the charger to another battery, just to see if it is working. The charge indicator needle will move. If you have confirmed that the charger is working, then the battery may be beyond charging. Make sure the connections from the charger to the battery terminals are tight.

2012 Chevy volt service high voltage system 12 volt battery keeps dying.I took it to dealership and they think it's the hybrid battery for 12000 dollars to replace does that sound right.


First is to determine if there is a spurious current leak from the 12 v system. measure the current out of it with a good meter and turn everything off if not already. Start pulling fuses until the source is found and trace that circuit for the issue. The 12V charges from the high volt system if its anything like out Toyota Hybrid. And if it were the HV battery, then charging the 12V one so that you could start should expose a HV battery that shows significant drain from sitting. Does it? Did they verify the inverter (Charges the 12V) is working properly? Think of it as an alternator for hybrids.

Hello Hermando, I assume your truck battery is 12 volt. You would want to select 12v 2a for a long slow charge or 12v 6a for a shorter faster charge.

Can I recharge car battery with my stanley dps109 digital power station


charging voltage doesnt matter as much as charging current. what you need to know is that for a battery to charge properly it needs a feed of about 2.0amps over a period of 8-10hours (my recommendation) .
you need to establish whether your charger can provide a 12volt 2.0amp output.
take a look at this link, it very useful: Charging your car battery

I have a 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid and have had hell with it. I have also learnt much about it too.

One thing bad about the HCH2, is that the 12V battery controls the electronics, and the Hybrid battery charges the 12V battery. However the 12V battery is not charged all the time, and cannot be charged when the IMA is usually being used, and in different scenarios. (Buy a Electronic volt meter which plugs into the 12V adapter $14 Walmart))

It is possible that the 12V battery is being drained while driving and caused a voltage drop which can cause your problem. In your case, I would change the 12V battery anyway as they do not last long on Hybrids. (You may have to get Honda to trip the IMA warning lights.) In my case, changing the 12v battery helped the hybrid battery as it was the electronics reporting the charge level wrong.

Depending where you live, you will have a minimum 80,000 mile warranty on the hybrid battery.

Battery in 1994 olds ciera will not hold a charge


Take a voltmeter with the car off and measure the voltage, should be around 12V. With the car running, measure again and this time it should read 13V-14V. If it does read 13V-14V then it means that the alternator is working. If it is below 12V, then it means your alternator is not charging the battery. If it's above 14V, then it means your alternator is overcharging and damaging the battery.

RAV4 Charging Cell Phone Causes Fuse to Blow


have never heard of a vehicle that can't be used to charge a cell phone but if that's what the dealer said, they usually know something about the vehicles they sell. i can suggest a work around but it might be you won't like it. you can buy a 12v jumper pack, it's really just a battery in a plastic case that can be used to jump your regular 12v car battery in the event that you can't get the car started from the regular battery under the hood. they are available in a few different sizes, they have them at car parts stores and dept. stores, you plug it in at home and it charges up overnight, then take it in the car with you just in case. every one of these that i have ever seen has a 12v outlet on them. some of these are quite heavy but you don't need a big one and you probably won't need to charge it more than once or twice a week just running a cell phone charger off it. i will admit that it is not as convenient as plugging it into your car but it won't blow a fuse and i'm pretty sure it would work. hope that helps

98 cadillac deville battery wont hold a charge


sounds like a 12V drain on the system, like a trunk or glove box light that won't shut off.> Could be many. many other reasons why. The way I would find the draining circuit would be to remove the neg cable of the battery. I then would connect a 12V test light between the neg battery TERMINAL and the neg battery CABLE. With a 12V drain the light will shine. I would install into the light a 9V battery powered recepticle to hold computer and radio station memory. Then I remove fuses 1 at a time, then reinstall, at the same time looking for the 12V light to go out. Hope this helps.
