%DETAILS%. Answer . Don't assume the battery had anything to do with the stalling. If a stalling proiblem was associated with the battery, it would have done it right away. And if it did, it would usually need to relearn the idle.. Answer . \nThe computer needs reset.. Answer . It coul…d be that the battery wasn't the problem to begin with, it was the alternator, or something in the charging system.\n. \nSo you put in a new battery, and it's got some juice, but not too much.. It works fine for a few starts, but then the engine dies, and you can't start it again. Likely the battery isn't getting a charge.\n. \nAnother theory is that your trunk light isn't turning off when you close the trunk, so it drains the battery, and on short runs the battery doesn't get charged enough.. Answer . \nHad the same thing happen to me in a 2001 Dodge Stratus. Fools replaced the battery but forgot to attach the thing that made the computer remember everything (sorry dont know all the tech terms). Had to make it learn how to idle in park, then in drive, then with the air conditioner on, etc. (MORE)
What is wrong with a 1989 Chevrolet that cranks fine but dies when put in gear and the speedometer moves up past 100 when put in forward gear?
had an 88 that somebody put in a tail light bulb wrong, and was back feeding & would stall the engine every time Yes, when I saw this issue, I immediately thought bad grounding. Check that the ground strap between the engine and the frame of the car is secure and has good contact. Had a Fiat one t…ime that did the speedo thing when this condition was present. Did lots of wierd things until the strap went back on Could be your TPS (throttle posistion sensor) sensor I just need to say that it's very unlikey that the taillight builb in the 88 was the actual problem, an 88 didn't have enough elecftrical systems to have problems with electrical feedback.....and it most likely is the TPS (throttle position sensor) or the IAC (idle air controller), the ground wire that is connected on the bottom left (from standing in front of the truck) is actually an extra ground but there are some systems that use that as the main ground. Check that ground anyway because it is a common problem for those gm's (Chevy and gmc, both gm vehicles) but test your IAC and TPS first (MORE)
you may be idling a little to high but this sounds pretty normal because of the way the transmission is pulling the car Answer Well, have you looked at your transmission mounts? I know my car does that and im pretty sure about my mounts being toast. the motor produces torque and i think if these …mounts are not good, then the motor will be acting on your front axle when they are not securely anchored. Im taking a stab at it but i bet you got front wheel drive. RC Answer Either your framed is cracked or rusted, OR Your engine cradle mount bushing/bolts could be broken. could be front or rear wheel drive. same effect happens with both drivetrains when in respective gears.

You put a new starter in your car 1991 Mercury Sable and when you hooked up the positive cable to the battery the car started to turn over without the key in the Ignition whats the problem?
Answer . \nmost likely you crossed a wire and caused the same effect as "hot wiring" the car. re check your connection and also every time you install or service an electrical component your negative battery conector should be unplug to prevent just that.
1993 Chevrolet pickup starter wont engage when you turn the ignition on. the battery is good and i put a new starter on?
check your wiring, if all your wiring is good then test your ignition relay, if its not the starter, not the battery, and not the wiring there's only one thing left. Good Luck with the repair
Phillips car radio RC600 I had a flat battery in your car and now you need the code I have the code How do you put it into the radio I only have up to 6 buttons and you need to do a 7 in the code?
Read the manual for the radio carefully, the code is not entered with the channel presetbuttons as it is on most other radios. The code is entered usingthe up/down keys and preset button 1 advances to the nextposition.
You should put distilled water in the battery. Do not open a battery that is not made to be opened.. Yes, if your battery is an older type that's not sealed, it's important to make sure the water level is adequate. It's easy to tell which type you have: unsealed batteries have small vent caps on to…p that can be easily unscrewed.. If you are unsure, take it to a proffessional, and ask them. (MORE)
My car died on me and I put in a new alternator because my battery was fine and that ended up killing the battery and so I put a new battery in and the battery meter still says its low. can you help?
Without knowing what kind of vehicle you're driving, this is not simple. If you put a "new" alternator in, you probably got a bad one. If you put a used alternator in you MOST LIKELY got a bad one. This is why it's usually best to leave this to a proffessional,then it's his headache! Have someone te…st the voltage at the battery, it should be around 13-14 volts when running. If it's not, make sure the belt is tight,no too, but tight. If still there's no change, you need another alternator. (MORE)

Email this guy. this is what he posted on the internet: I know that are many people have discovered they have a sibling that was put up for adoption. I understand the range of emotions that this news brings forth. I have so many questions myself. I have been searching for over two years now for a s…ister that was put up for adoption in Odessa Texas. We think that she was born the end of 1949 or the beginning months of 1950 at the Gettins Clinic. She might not even know that she was adopted. I have learned a great deal about finding people. During my search I have helped several people find their loved ones. This has made all the time, money, and hard work worth while. If you need help let me know. I would like to help if I can. Sometimes it is impossible to find a family member as I have found, other times it's much easier than you think. LIN email@example.com (MORE)
Your best bet is to use distilled water, since it's the purest. You can buy it by the gallon at Wallmart, K-mart and other stores for about .70 per gallon. It's not all that expensive.\n. \nChlorinated water can kill a battery in no time as well as tap water that has contaminants or water conditi…oners like lime, etc. (MORE)
It depends on the company and the plan you get. The standard is 2500 miles per year. But with a "pleasure driving plan" you can get unlimited miles. Call and ask different companies to see what they offer. However, I haven't found any company that will let you keep the car overnight at any location …other than your closed garage or a classic car show. (MORE)
I did not drive my car for 4 months. Battery died to the point that keyless entry would not work. After charging the battery dome lights are back on but the car will not start. VW Passat 2001. help?
A lot of newer VW's have to be reprogrammed by the dealer just to restart after the battery has been completely drained. Sure hope it's not that, costs a lot from the dealer, sometimes they even have to come to the vechile itself to reprogram it since it won't come out of park sometimes. Good Luck!!…!! (MORE)

You would most likely not be able to clamp it into place as the Saturn battery retainers are very specific.
Internal combustion engines need 3 things to start and run: air, fuel, and spark. First look over all of your fuses, to make sure none of them such as the fuel pump fuse, or the fusable link have burned out. Make sure your battery is not faulty, even a brand new battery could potentially be no good.… Check the voltage with your volt or multi meter, it should read around 12.5v. Inspect the cables to and from the battery and alternator, but sure they are properly installed. Check your air induction system, make sure the air filter is nice and clean, no blockages. If your vehicle is equipped with a MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor) make sure it is plugged in correctly. Likewise if your vehicle is equipped with a MAP (manifold absolute pressure sensor) be sure that is plugged in correctly. Visually inspect the entire length of the intake piping, for loose clamps, cracked piping, or gaps. Once you have completed that if your vehicle has a distributor system, remove the distributor cap and replace it if necessary. If you see any visible damage to the spark plug wires, or the age of them is unknown replace them. Next check your spak plugs for the correct gap as recommended by the manufacturer, be sure they are in good shape before reinstalling them. If the vehicle still will not start, try replacing your fuel filter. This is usually inline, though in some cases it is in the fuel tank itself. Once that is completed turn the key to the accessory position, in most vehicles you should hear the fuel pump turn on and prime the lines for starting. If you do, you should be in good shape at this point. (MORE)
I think (I don't know for sure) that it may have something to do with the way remote car starters are designed -in particular, the units' signal receiving device (what ever the discreetly attached antenna, usually on the upper corner of the windshield inside your car cabin, thingy is called). I not…iced that the LED flashes very brightly, and/or stays lit -equally bright depending on the mode its in (24/7, whenever the vehicle is not being driven. While driving the said LED is not on, thank God). This LED can literally light up a darken single garage to the point where you'd be able walk without needing to turn on the garage light (that is the case with my remote starter unit, and it's a 2013 model). Therefore, I think perhaps one might be able to draw one conclusion; that such a constant drain on the car battery can't be healthy over time for the battery's overall health -as the LED is constantly using up power (despite the fact that the car battery does "self-replenish"). This is LED "issue" is certainly one contribution that I can think of even without any knowledge of electronics. I hope I am wrong about this, cause I have the same concern. : ) (MORE)
Battery Interchange Yes, a van battery can be used in an automobile, IF if will physically fit in the auto's battery holder tray, is the same voltage, and can be properly secured to prevent falling out of the battery tray. The major problem is safety. Under no circumstance can the battery be loca…ted so that it is sitting on, or rubbing against, a sharp metal edge which could result in abrasion of the battery's case, releasing battery acid into the engine compartment. This would result in severe damage to components within the engine compartment, AND could be hazardous to your health and safety. A battery only has 12 volts in it so volts dont matter, thank you Lincoln Tech. (MORE)
Connect Positive on A to Negative in B then Positive from B to whatever Positive on A had been connected to.
Because the electrolyte in a battery is a mixture of 65% distilled water and 35% sulfuric acid. Anytime you top off a battery you must use distilled water.
Can a standard chain link fence charge a rechargable battery because my son swears him and his friends would charge their Game Boy at daycare putting the battery in a square and power it up?
No. Chain link fences do not generate electricity. They can conduct it to ground in certain conditions.
Can you charge a dead battery by getting a second car that is running take the good battery out of the running car and put the dead battery into the running car as a means of charging it?
\nNo, this will place a very heavy load on the alternator of the car and may result in burning out the diodes of the car charging the battery. You could easily ruin the alternator. Purchase a battery charger and charge the dead battery with that. Alternators are not made to charge dead batteries.
Actually you can- it makes the batteries last longer than the set time period it is helpful to do this Well kinda, sorta, but not really. I will explain, as the rechargeable battery is used it generates heat, this heat will break down and limit the power available for the device. When you cool t…he battery down it allows or extends the available power from the battery because it's not lost in the generating heat issue. So if batteries are allowed to be kept cool the power they hold will be extended because there is no thermal loss and resistance due to the heat of use. But actually placing them in the freezer does nothing for them other than possibly cracking the battery case and voiding any warranty. Thermal loss is and issue with Ni-cad and Lithium Ion batteries in heavy service situations so let them cool after charging and if you are using the phone a lot consider having another charged "cool" battery handy. (MORE)
possibley i know you can charge rechargeable battterys in the fridge but not phone not sure if you can tho
A couple reasons. With the complexity of today's car engines the engine compartment can get pretty crouded.......1. Save space in the engine compartment. 2. It is cooler in the trunk of the car. Cooler temps can help prolong the battery life. 3. If the car is a rear wheel drive vehicle, the extra we…ight in the back of the car can help with traction. 4. On some vehicles they have the battery under the rear seat i.e. BMW, which does this for weight distribution purposes and helps cornering abilities. (MORE)
No, this actually can harm them. Refrigeration can cause condensation, which can lead to damage in the battery. It's better to store them at room temperature.
No. Your best bet is to keep the battery clean. Wipe it down often. Dirt will conduct electricity from the battery terminals and slowly discharge it. If the battery is on your garage floor, make a simple wooden tray to put it on. Batteries find concrete a nice path to discharging. In a car, ensure t…hat all lights are off when the car is turned off. In the winter, use an extension cord and a utility light with a bare bulb and leave it turned on on the driveway or street underneath where the battery is. Warmth will greatly increase cranking power. In the old days when we had a naturally-occuring cold period of 25 years, I would crank the car engine for one revolution just to create a little heat in the battery. After about 20 seconds, I would start the car. This often made the difference between the car going and the car staying right where it was. (MORE)

I ran out of gas in the drive way and then the power died now the car wont start back up after i put gas in and charged the battery why?
One possibility is a vapor lock in the fuel system. If the tank, fuel pump, and injectors went completely dry, it is very difficult to get fuel flowing again. The air in the fuel injectors blocks the flow. Your engine manual may specify a procedure to help clear a vapor lock, or you may have to take… it to a dealer for service. You may have also damaged the charging system or triggered an antitheft system by draining the battery all the way. (Possibly the key was left ON when the car ran out of gas, causing the battery to go flat while you went for gas). (MORE)

Auto Electrical Conundrum In over 60 years of maintaining my own and others cars and pickups, I've never heard of the practice of turning headlights on while "jump" charging an auto battery. I am a longtime electrical/electronics hobbyist, and SUSPECT that turning headlights on while charging fro…m another vehicle is to provide some load to "use up" some of the current [normally measured in Amperes (Amps)]. By adding the load of the headlights, one would think that the output current of the charging vehicle's alternator would be reduced, thus lowering the charge rate to the battery being charged. I can only guess that the purpose would be to slow down the charge rate, and thus reduce heat and Hydrogen gas generation in the charging battery. There is a problem with this idea in that the voltage regulation system in the charging vehicle WILL [or should] SENSE the reduced charging voltage, and in response, will just increase the output voltage, and thus the current to the charging battery. In effect, this "trick" is worthless. Just charge the battery with the lights OFF as this will accomplish the charging in a shorter time. (MORE)
Turning Parking Lights ON while Charging Battery NO, it serves no purpose other than to reduce the life of the parking light bulb filaments, and to cause the battery to have to be charged longer.
Yes! But they will also die if you don't put it on the floor. On the floor or not makes no difference.
No you cant. Baking soda actually neutralises sulphuric acid . So you are left with only water in your battery. It may also damage the cells inside. But you can clean the outside of your battery with baking soda diluted in a water.

Disconnect negative cable first from old battery and connect it last when installing new battery.
If you allow it to discharge, then it becomes useless, so you have to recharge it. Some batteries (e.g. for torches) don't have to be charged because their internal chemistry is such that they come already 'full'. But once they discharge then you have to throw them away.
I need three batteries for remote starters where do I purchase them? Can I have them shipped
The first thing that you want to do is check your battery. This is the most common problem with vehicle no-starts, so by checking your battery, you will either solve the problem immediately or rule out one potential issue. If you turn on your head lights and they are bright, your radio is loud, and …you can use your automatic windows and doors, then your battery definitely isn't dead. This means that it is most likely your starter or some more serious problem, such as a timing belt or even something like a lack of fuel. My source is linked below. (MORE)
No you don't, when you install a remote start, it will come with a transponder for it, if you go to get it installed at a place like bestbuy it will come with a remote start transponder after they install it for you. Imad
Yes you can. This is common in vehicles that run alot of electrics while the engine is not running. However ensure the replacement battery can be properly secured and fits within the confines of the space the vehicle provides.
The remote key uses a radio signal to start the car. This means something else can be on that frequency and causing it to start. Could be something in the system itself.
I would guess it is in need of a tune up, spark plugs, ignition wires, fuel filter, air filter, pcv valve, distributor cap and rotor. Not knowing what vehicle and engine you have, some of these parts may not exist on yours.
What inverter would you need to run 600watt light and could also put a heavy duty battery charger on to charge the battery bk up that runs the inverter in the first place and can it be done free power?
There is no free power. Inverters always waste some power; they are not 100% efficient. You can't take as much power out of a battery as you put in to it.
You should never put dangerous things into any orifice of the body.if that battery leaks or you break it when trying to get it out,you can get seriously injured and even die. Why
Yes, a van battery can be used in an automobile, IF if will physically fit in the auto's battery holder tray, is the same voltage, and can be properly secured to prevent falling out of the battery tray. .

Used batteries are not a commodity for sale. It's best to recycle them by visiting local electronic retailers, or for automotive batteries, visit local mechanics.
Yes, but it can be more trouble than its worth many aftermarket systems cause problems by bypassing factory anti theft
