1 Answer

Am I doing something wrong?

I bought this back up a few months ago and I lost the manual. My problem is the battery, its not working. I am having a hard time getting the battery out because one of the connecters is not coming off the batery and i am afraid if I keep pulling at it, i might break it. Can anyone tell me how i can get one? Thanks Lisa

Http://www.apcc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=BE500R&tab=documentation Above is the link to your manual. If unit has not been powered up in several months then chances are the battery is dead and needs to be replaced. The terminals on the battery are slip on and off. Don't worry about breaking anything, it can be recrimped if needed. Use a pair of plyers and take the connector off of the battery and replace it with a new one. Make sure you observe the battery polarity when replacing. + for red connector and - for black connector.

If polarity is OK in battery section, then I think you have faulty mouse. Unless user manual states otherwise, I would return to seller for replacement.

I purchased a Schumacher 1200A battery charger a few months ago and just last night tried to charge my 2007 Infiniti G35 battery. The vehicle gets limited use and when I went to start a week ago the engine...

I don't think you did anything wrong. I think your battery is tired and can't take a charge deep enough as it used to. As batteries get older and after repeated discharge and recharge during normal operation, they start losing their ability to hold charge as deep as when new. This is gradual and after a couple of years they drop to 50% and less. I think your attempt was "gallant" and you did everything correct, but it sounds that battery has flatlined on you and "Doc, the patient is gone"

One of the advantages of buying a car new is the warranty and the service. Even if you are putting it in wrong it is part of the service to have them show you how to use it. There should be a section in the manual that will instruct you as well.

Read the manual and if you still can't get it to work, take it back and see what they find. The reason warranties are issued is because not everything works just because it is new.

Hope this helps
