Probably need a new alternator, or you battery cables or conectors could be bad If the battery is connected to your vehicle and it is not maintaining charge while the vehicle is running then it is more than likely your alternator that is out. If the battery does not have juice and is brand new then it is defective. I have also heard that if you place a car battery directly on concrete for a long period of time it will ruin. Always put a battery on a wood or a metal surface when storing.
SAE 5w20 any major brand.
Lenmar chargers usually charge quickly, but if you have a particular brand preference, stick with that.
Bad alternator? May have short, will still charge, but drains the battery when sitting. Just as a test, take one of the battery cables off at night and see if the battery stays charged. Might be bad battery even though new. Hood light that's not shuting off? Brake switch not shutting off? Have you checked the altermator to make sure it's charging 14 amps. May be weak and only charging enough to keep the truck running with nothing left to charge the battery. Out of ideas
It depends on the brand of the battery and or the charger used to charge it. But an average time of 5 hours is about right.
The battery brand itself doesn't matter. It depends on how much charge the battery can hold. A good way to improve battery life is to charge it only when your phone is down to the last bar . Don't charge it unnecessary.
You have to charge your brand new battery to FULL before using it. 24 Hours recommended. Doing this doesn't extend the battery life but if you do not charge it to full and start to use it the battery would have a shorter life span.
Depends on the brand you buy. If you buy an AC/Delco which I recommend, get a PF46 oil filter. .
the belt probly is not tight enough
apparently 24 hrs
If you replaced the battery with a brand new one, then no. The battery comes from the store with a fuul charge. If it didn't come charged up, then you have bought a defective battery.
You have to let it charge to full battery first then use it.
Acording to apple support, ipod touch full charge time is 3-4 hours at any point that the battery level is at before charge, even brand new is 3-4 hours, do not over charge battery! and do not let the battery full die! you need to keep the electrons always moving in the battery to extend its life.
the enigizer bunny brand he keeps going and going and going and going and going and going and going and going.
Battery brand isn't that important. The time to charge is mainly dependent on the capacity of the battery and the capacity of the charger. Any reasonable modern charger should sense when the battery is full and cut power when it's done. It can take some hours for a full charge.
Something is on pulling power from the battery. Can be any light on the car or a stuck relay.
The different brand charger will charge the batteries. It's best to get the same brand as the batteries though. Having a different brand charger can ruin the batteries.
Oreck Vacuums are rated the longest as the lasting battery in a vacuum.
5W30 weight. Kendell and Gastroll GTX is a good brand to use. The manufacture recommended weight is 5w20 year round.
SAE 5w30 any major brand. If the vehicle has over 100,000 miles on the odometer use a High Mileage oil.
What brand is the car?
do the bolts on a 1990 pickup truck go in vertical or horizontal
No, it takes longer than a few minutes of running to properly charge a battery that was too low to start a car. However, if the dealer properly charged the battery, for the proper length of time, you are OK. If it was a "start charge", then no. The bottom line is the electrolyte's specific gravity, a measure of charge. Of interest also is the reason why it was discharged to start with - I would ask the dealer, and I would insist on a full starting / charging system performance test.
You can, but it is not the best choice. You will need a charge controller to avoid overcharging the battery and if your solar panel is to maintain a battery not used often, you should be ok. But if you're looking for an "off the grid" type power supply, your best bet is with a good charge controller and a good AGM (absorbed Glass Mat) battery such as a DEKA brand battery from East Penn Manufacturing.
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.
Any brand as long as it is the correct size battery.
