Your car won't turn on.
If your car battery is dead, you will not be able to start your vehicle without a jump using jumper cables. When the car won't start and the lights on the dash aren't working, it is most likely your battery.
You need to charge the battery with a battery charger.
If the battery is dead the alarm will not go off
If the battery will not hold a charge it more than likely has a dead cell. If the battery is over 4 years old, replace it.
It is dead when the car doesnt start. You can see warning sighs when your car takes longer to start, or when rolling your windows up or down takes longer than normal. If you fully charge the battery and it looses that charge over a 24 hour period, and you know there is nothing draining the battery, it has a dead cell. In some cases a battery with a dead cell will not even accept a charge.
No start? No turnover? No horn? No lights? Check with a voltmeter
Try start the car. Check the voltage.
No, 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.
A completely dead battery or a bad connection to the battery.
Get a donor car and use it's battery to start your car. You will need a set of quality jumper cables. Or you can charge the dead battery on the car for about 2 hours with a good 10 amp battery charger.
Your car won't start. No electrical items will work (radio, lights, power windows/locks...)
A storm has nothing to do with the battery going dead.
Some car battery charges will not charge a completely dead battery. You need to find a type of battery charger that is designed to charge a completely dead battery. You can get around this by hooking a car with a working battery up to the dead battery with jumper cables. The alternator/charging system of the car with the good battery will charge the dead battery. Leave them connected for about 30 min, then disconnect and try to use the battery charger again. If it still won't charge, hook it up to the car with the good battery for a longer period of time.
Yes, once you have jump started the car (from another car's battery), driving the car will recharge the dead battery (provided the battery is OK). This is a terrible idea and may damage the alternator. Drive the car immediately home and charge the battery with a battery charger. Alternators are designed to keep a charged battery fully charged. They are not designed to charge a dead battery. This puts way too much strain on the alternator circuits.
Jump the car from another car battery or hook a charger to the battery.
Car battery jumpers are used to revive a dead battery in your vehicle. This is done by connecting a pair of jumper cables from a running car, or booster car, to the car with the dead battery. Once these are connected, the booster vehicle is started and begins to charge the non-working vehicle.
A dead battery will have no effect on the computer in the car any more than unplugging your home computer.
if anything is running off the battery (visibly on) the battery will eventually go dead
If it has a dead cell the battery will not hold a charge and must be replaced.

Dead cell in the battery or something is on pulling power from the battery. If it is a dead cell the battery must be replaced.
your engine wont turn over but it makes a clicking noise or if you turn the key to the notch before the one that turn on your car then turn on your radio and if it doesn't turn on you have a dead battery.
use the key to get in pop the hood and jump charge the car battery if this is not possible phone your main dealer
Fully charge the battery Check with a voltmeter (should read approx. 12.8 volts without engine running) With engine running and good alternator reading should be 13.8-14.2 if the battery is dead the car wont start. replace the battery (preferably with a new one) run the car and if it dies or wont crank again its the alternator (or possibly the alternator belt is slipping)
