Car Batteries
Ford Windstar

Do you need to keep the electrical system connected when installing a new battery in a 1999 Ford Windstar?

I recently replaced the battery in our 1998 Windstar and did not keep the electrical system connected during the changeover. No issues afterwards.

check battery cables are connected correctly, and there not crimped under the battery.

The function of a battery is to provide electrical energy to devices which are connected to it.

A battery contains chemical energy.When a load is connected to the battery it converts some of this chemical energy to electrical energy, which it delivers to that load.If it is a rechargeable battery, when a charger is connected to the battery and delivers electrical energy to the battery, the battery converts this electrical energy to chemical energy (and some waste heat energy).

Cells are connected in a battery to carry out Red-ox reactions in order to generate electrical energy.

No, they only transform light energy to electrical energy. If they are connected to a battery the battery will be able to store the electrical energy.

The equipment is all connected in series with each other to make a complete electrical circuit.

In an uninterrupted power supply there has to be a source of power when the electrical utility is not there. The only supply that is available is a battery that is in or connected to the UPS.

Not very likely even if you connected the battery in reverse. But with electronics it is possible. More than likely if you did this it just blew the fuse.

A battery stores chemical energy creating a voltage or potential difference that is the potential to do work.When a battery is connected to an electrical device, current flow and is so the conversion of chemical energy into electrical energy.

there is a small wire connected at the battery. make sure it is connected

Potential chemical energy is released as electrical energy when the external circuit is connected.

The type of energy that is produced with batteries, wires and bulbs is what we call electrical energy. Which is the same electrical energy we use for power such as lights.

once a car starts the bttery is not more necessary to run the car . the generator takes over. in this case i think the regulator failed and the battry since is connected died also.

"Sparking" When Connecting a BatteryWhen sparks occur on connecting a battery [IF the cables are connected to the proper terminals and in the proper order] is an indication that some of the electricity using devices [clock, computers, etc.] in the vehicle's electrical system are drawing electrical current.IF the battery cables are being connected properly, this sparking is normal, causes no damage, and is nothing to be concerned about.

Of course you can. But it would have to be on a dedicated circuit and not be connected to the cars electrical system.

If I had to guess I would say you have a short in the electrical system that slowly drains the battery as it sits.

The alternator is run by a belt connected to the engine. When the engine is running the alternator is turning. The alternator is what produces the electrical current that charges the battery & powers everything electrical while the engine is running. the battery is mainly to start the engine.

On the Ford Windstar 2001 model, it is under the hood, next to the battery.

In a way it can be. If a capacitor is connected to a battery, it will charge to the battery voltage. Then the capacitor can be discharged into a circuit to do work. But the capacitor doesn't store electrons, it stores an electrical field in the dielectric. If you mean storing the flowing electrons in a conductor, then they can't be stored except in a magnetic containment field such as in a cyclotron. A rechargable battery doesn't store electrons either, it stores energy in a chemical form which is converted to an electrical form when the battery is connected to a circuit.

If the battery of your MacBook is fully charged whilst you have the power cable plugged in, then the MacBook will switch to battery power instead of wasting electrical power from the plug. Once the battery is run down again, the Macbook will switch back to electrical power from the plug.

An electrical circuit is a collection of electrical devices which are connected in a loop for electricity to flow through from high potential to low potential. A battery connect to light bulb is one simple form of so-called circuit :)
