Asked in Nissan Maxima
How do you know when the starter is bad on a Nissan Maxima?
You know when the starter on your nissan maxima is going bad when your car doesnt start/ even when someone gives you a boost, all your fuses are fine, and none of them are NOT blown. You know its your starter and NOT alernator when you take another battery from a car thats been driven and their battery is ok and you put it into your car and the car will not start. If its the alternator, then the car would start in that case.

Why does your car battery click but not start?
Batteries don't "click," but other parts do. If you're hearing that "click," it's probably the starter solenoid trying to engage. Either the battery's charge is low, the starter solenoid has failed, or the starter motor itself has failed. On some older cars, especially Fords, the "click" could also be a remote starter relay.

Asked in Car Batteries
How many batteries does an 18 wheeler have to start the engine?
You can start an 18 wheeler with 3 batteries, but if the semi sits for 2 days or more it may not start, that is why they require 4 batteries, that forth battery will help start the engine even after a week of sitting, the reason for this, is because the ECM is always pulling power from the batteries.

Asked in Car Starting Problems, Ford F-150
What does it mean when your car will not start it just clicks?
These answers by mechanics about dead batteries are amazing me. I am a girl...really into cars because I have had a few. I just had this problem in my 1989 classic Saab. The problem is your starter...The clicking sound means that the pin inside of the starter is not projecting itself and thats why when you turn your key you hear a clicking. Get your starter tested

Asked in Batteries
How does the Battery boost setting in Mandalay class a motor home work?
Battery boost in a Mandalay is used when you need ALL of the power you can get from ALL of your batteries to power something. If you 2 starter batteries are too low to start the engine, push that button and right away all of the power in the COACH batteries is diverted to the engine to start it up. It also works the same way to start the generator, and several other things. I own a 2004 Mandalay 40B, so I know what I'm talking about.
Asked in Physics, Car Batteries
Why Can't 2 9 volt batteries start a car?
Two nine volt batteries connected in series put out a nominal 18 volts, which is more than enough potential. However, the current draw of the starter is a lot more than two tiny 9V batteries are capable of. There's a reason car batteries are so large, despite only putting out slightly more voltage than a 9V battery does.
