If an 88 Accord DX has a new battery but will not hold a charge do the battery cables need replacing?

A bad alternator will run down the battery. Maybe. Lets check the simple stuff first.How do you know that it IS charging in the first place? Get a voltmeter (VOM) and measure the voltage of the battery when the car is off. It should be more than 11.5 Volts. (Or it is really discharged battery). The start the car and measure the voltage again. It sould be at least 13.5 Volts up to about 14.5 volts. If not then the alternator is not giving enough voltage to charge. If it is, then it could still be a diode in the alternator that is bad. You cold have some accessory or light that stays ON somwhere draining the battery. It could be a bad battery. It could be a bad set of battery cables.

Do you need a new alternator when your new battery does not hold a charge?

Answer 1 . NOT always. Any new, replacement part, including batteries, can be defective from the start.. Before making any decision to replace either a battery, or especially an alternator, have the electrical system checked by someone who knows what s/he is doing.. Usually, most mainstream auto parts chain stores [like for example, Advance, Autozone, O'Rielly] have the equipment necessary to fully check out your vehicle's battery and charging system, and will check it out for FREE.. So, before spending any money replacing something which may not be defective, get the entire electrical system checked.

Should a New car battery need to be charge?

I would say it depends on how long the battery sat around at the retailer. If you bought a battery that is very popular and fits many models then it probably has not sat around very long. If your battery is an oddball, and has been sitting, then it may need a charge. I would recommend a charger with an automatic setting which will cut off when the charge is complete. Rick.

Do you need to charge a brand new motorcycle battery?

One view: Some batteries come with a charge which may or not start the motorcycle. I have seen batteries come that are not topped off with acid, but the acid is sent in a separate container that you need to pour in. I would say in most cases that you need to charge or jump the new battery. Take it for a 10 minute ride and you should be good to go. Alternate view: When you put the acid in the battery it does charge itself somewhat, but not fully (perhaps only 75%). That is why it says to charge it, follow the instructions with the battery! When you charge it fully it makes the battery last longer. To charge the battery, you have to buy a battery charger and you need one that will only charge at 2 amps. A "smart" battery "tender" may not work as it may register the battery as fully charged. You need to use a simple (non computerized) 1-2 amp trickle charger. There are rules about the max rates to trickle charge, I've seen 10% of rated cold cranking amps (CCA). Lower amperage will be safer but take longer to charge.

Why the new cars in dealership showrooms need to have their batteries charged?

A car has what is called ignition off draw. The computers on the car pull a small amount of current with the key off to keep their memory alive.

How long do you have to charge a car battery for?

It's hard to answer this question because it depends on the charging current. Most modern chargers have some kind of indicator to let you know when the battery is fully charged but the charge current usually drops back to a minimum when it is fully charged. The battery should be marked with it's Ampere /Hour capacity. For example if it is a 40 A/H battery it can be charged at 1 Amp for 40 hours or 2 Amps for 20 hours pro rata. Add a little extra time for losses but a long 48 hour trickle charge is generally better than a short heavy charge. You can purchase a smart charger that has a built in circuit to prevent damage to the charger or battery. I have a Black and Decker that I bought at Home Depot for twenty dollars. It is a 2 amp trickle charger that also has a 1 amp charge rate setting. It will shut off and turn on when needed to maintain a fully charged battery, so you don't have to worry about over or under charging. It's great for maintaining stored batteries also.

How to charge a new lap top battery?

Does a new car battery need charging?

Do "new" Vehicle Batteries Need to be Charged before use Usually not, especially if purchased from a battery shop, or auto parts store, or Walmart for example. They receive the batteries shipped in a "dry" condition [i.e., no electrolyte (acid or liquid) in them] and then they add the acid/liquid electrolyte, and the battery is instantly at full charge. On the other hand, if they [or you after buying] allow a battery to sit for a very long period of time, it's possible it will lose some of its charge. In any case, it will do no harm to charge a new battery overnight IF done at a trickle charge rate of one Amp , or two Amps maximum.

How long do you need to keep booster cables on until battery is charged?

As long as you are running the car you can take them off immediately after the car has started. The alternator in the engine will then charge the battery as you drive, the motor being on. Drive it around the block a few times, or for 10-20 minutes and you should be good, unless it's really cold where you live then drive it a while longer. If this is a perpetual problem you may need a new battery, I always go to 'autozone', they will check the battery, while in the car, for free as well as the alternator output. They even put a new battery in for me, for free, after I had purchased it of course.

A winch mounted on the front bumper incorrectly or too big for the electrical system. It is also possible for normal wear and tear to cause a system "drain".

Why does a car battery need to be charged?

Why does battery not charge with new alternator?

When alternator went out, it could have taken out a fuse if the alternator shorted. The main battery cable to the alternator is not fused, but in your panel you should find an ALT fuse. most alternators have two to three small wires that are in a pigtail that plug into the alternator. these small wires are fused. if your car can't pass current through an open fuse. then there is nothing to essentially tell the alternator to turn on. another thing to check, is whether the battery light comes on. if you turn the key to the forward position, without trying to strart the engine, your prestart lights should all light up. this is a system precheck before the engine starts. the battery light should come on at this point. if the light doesn't come on that is an indication of a fuse being blown. in a lot of vehicles, from the seventies to the late nineties, the charge light, or battery light has to work in order for the alternator to work. if the bulb in the dash(which is behind the battery light) burns out, your alternator will not receive power to turn on and work. again, newer vehicles do not have a light circuit that it relies on for the alternator to function. keep in mind, your battery light should have come on and been on the entire time the old alternator was in the vehicle. if it wasn't on, then this is something to pursue further.
