your battery is probably dead...., if when you turn the key and nothing happens at all...your battery is probably dead...
Solution: Well, it turns out it was my ignition switch. That was my first guess. Im glad i went with it.
Bad alternator and/or belt. Your battery isn't being re-charged while you run the engine, so the electrical things drain the reserve from the battery.
believe it or not you may haveblown fuse check them.
generally speaking, there are several LED lights on the battery charger, when the light is red, it meas the battery is being charged, when the light turn to green or yellow, it means the battery is full charged
Sounds like a connection problem from the battery to the car. Easiest way to find out is to get a jump start from another car, if it works then it's the battery, if not then is either the battery cable or an alarm/immobiliser that is still armed.
battery light on 2000 f250 will blink if battery is not properly charged. an example is if you have been sitting all day with stereo olaying and engine not running, you have run battery down some. after starting engine and driving, the battery light will blink while alternator charges until battery is fully charged i have only experienced this at night when lights are on creating extra load for alternator ,after running battery down with stereo all day
Starts the engine. Turns on lights and radio.
The alternator when the engine is on, and the battery when the engine is off.
could be bad cells in the battery, but my bmw ended up having a seized motor, starter was engaging and clicking because it couldnt turn the engine. try putting a socket on the engine crank pulley to see if engine will rotate
The battery is dieing down and you should go and get a new battery or get your battery charged
Weak battery not holding a full charge or alternator not supplying a suffient charge to the battery - check with a voltmeter A fully charged battery should read approx. 12.8 without engine running Approx. 13.8-14.2 with engine running
This isn't enough information. Does the engine "crank", in other words, can you hear the engine turn as you try to start it? If the engine doesn't crank and the lights go very dim you could have either a poor connection between the battery and the battery cable or the battery could be discharged. Batteries are only storage devices that hold electrical energy that has been put there by the alternator. IF, after checking things out, the alternator is not functioning or the battery is old enough that it no longer holds a charge you will have to replace the offending component. Don't just assume that it's the battery just because the battery is not charged. It has to be tested first, by someone who knows what's going on. == == == == This is most probably what you are refering to: Why would a car with a fully charged have dim light and be unable to start? http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why_would_a_car_with_a_fully_charged_battery_have_dim_lights_and_be_unable_to_start == == == ==
When your lights are on and your engine is not running you are taking the power for your car lights directly from your battery. If you leave them on long enough, you will run down your battery and your car will not start. Then you will need a jump.
If you have nothing on, as in, radio, lights, etc, you can easily drive 20 miles on a fully charged battery. If you have your lights on then maybe 10 miles. It really depends on how good the battery is.
Try having battery charged It may have been discharged to the point that it will not accept a charge and willhave to be replaced After having battery charged check the alternator with a voltmeter - should read approx. 12.8 without engine running and 13.8-14.2 with engine running
Answer 1There are couple of variables involved which make difficult a determination of available hours of function, but the simple answer is YES, leaving the hazard lights on too long can seriously drain the battery.The variables include; the number of bulbs [determines the amount of current drawn from the battery], and condition of the battery [whether fully charged, or run down low from, for example, many attempts to start the vehicle].I know from more than one personal experience with Ford pickup trucks, that leaving the hazard flasher lights on overnight [even with a healthy, fully charged battery] will result in either a dead battery in the morning, or at least depleted to the point that it cannot crank and/or start the engine!The problem is worse when there is a trailer attached to the vehicle.j3h.
how do you know the battery is charged? also it could be a loose battery wire. they need to be properly thighten so the energy could flow. if there are no lights theres no power coming from the battery.
If the lights are bright, the starter may have failed. If the lights are dim and the starter turns over slowly (RRRRrrr . . .) the battery my need to be charged. If the lights are bright and the starter cranks normally, failures in the ignition system may be the cause. The engine needs a strong battery with clean, tight connections, fuel and spark. You are missing one of those.
No. Emergency lights are designed to turn ON when there is a power loss or outage either from their back up battery or from an emergency generator. In buildings which do not have back up emergency generators, (which most are) emergency lights require power supplied to them 24/7 to keep their batteries charged.
with the information you've given, it sounds like a weak battery.
Yes, the car will start with a fully charged battery. But if the alternator is defective the battery will soon run down and the engine will stop once all electrical power is drained from the battery. You can drive maybe 15 miles in daylight with nothing on, or maybe 10 miles at night with your lights on.
Turning Parking Lights ON while Charging BatteryNO, 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.
Battery may need charged. There may be enough power to turn on lights ect.. but not enough to start the engine.
The ABS light indicates a problem with the anti-lock brake system, the airbag light is a problem within the airbag system and needs to be checked as soon as possible, the engine light is a malfunction with the engine after start up, the battery light shows the battery is no longer being charged, the EPC light is a fault in the engine. There are also some other lights that are self explanatory, and can be found in your car's manual.
Yes.. Well, not the engine of it. The engine/movement of the car is the power of gas/oil. Not the battery. The battery controls: lights, radios, heaters.....etc Hope this helped ;)
Alternator straining to maintain battery charge?
