Why would a 82 Honda vf750s battery not hold a charge?
Bad charging system, bad battery, short that drains battery... the list goes on. Without more specifics, it's hard to tell. Bad charging system, bad battery, short that drains battery... the list goes on. Without more specifics, it's hard to tell.
hey, this is a easy answer? (NO)! why would you time it?? all it does is charge the battery!
Why will 1995 Honda Civic DX only start when jumped with jumper cables- it won't start with a jumpstart pack that is fully charged- Ran for 30 min to charge and no start- Alternator or ignition switch?
If it were the ignition switch, the vehicle would not start even with a jump. The battery is either not holding a charge or the alternator is not providing the charge to the battery. You can have the battery and the alternator checked (usually free of charge) at an auto parts store,
Yes, your can charge the battery with the radio on. But why would you want to do this? It will just take longer to charge with something drawing current from the battery.
What would cause your 98 Honda civic dx to not hold a charge on battery-you changed alternator and battery is not holding charge-electrical system is going up and down-in other words when lights are o?
Have you verified that the replacment alternator is working? Test both the alternator and the battery. If a battery is allowed to go completely dead and then it sits for a few days it will "sulphate", meaning that the lead plates turn to lead sulphate, making them unable to hold a charge.
It's in the amount of current that is used to charge the battery. If the amp-hour (Ah) capacity of the battery is known, charging at the 5-hour rate or quicker would count as a boost charge, while charging at the 20-hour rate or slower would be a trickle charge. So for a 40 Ah battery, a boost charge is more than 8 amps while a trickle charge is less than 2 amps. A normal charge… Read More
Dead cell in battery, replace it.
No, the battery would not get fully charged.
Answer 1 - Message, "Battery no charge" That tells us that there is some defect in the charging circuit or battery that is preventing the battery frome being charged.
It would depend on how much mah output your battery has. Here's the formula for how long you need to charge a COMPLETELY dead battery: Mah of battery ÷ mah of charger = number of hours
You would have to know the voltages of the battery and the UPS to know for sure. For example if the UPS' output is 120 volts, then it is capable of 5 amps of output. If the battery is also 120 volts, then it would take the UPS 29 hours to fully charge the battery. However if the battery was rated at 220 volts, then the UPS would never completely charge the battery. The source… Read More
Dead battery? poor battery connections? Remove the battery connections and make sure they are clean and tight. If you do that and it still doesn't turn over, then charge the battery and try. If it still wont turn over I would have the battery tested. If the battery tests good then begin to look at your starter. If your starter tests good, then it is time to look at the ignition switch.
If the alternator is good and the battery does not charge, then the battery may be bad. There could be problem with the electronics. You will need to take it to a place where they sell batteries. They have equipment to check out the battery and the wiring.
What would cause the battery to not charge even when the alternator tests good on a 93 Mercury Cougar?
the battery could have a dead cell, this could cause it to not charge. Have the battery tested to be sure.
The battery is under the rear seat. Remove it and charge it on a charger like anyother car battery. The reason I would remove the battery is that if there was a short and the battery blew up, acid would destroy the interior. And burn anyone nearby. Its a rare thing but it does happen.
If you have already checked the connections on the battery I would suggest testing the alternator and the battery. If the battery will not take a charge or the alternator will not give a charge you could have similar problems.
You don't. This would put a strain on the alternator and may burn a diode out. Charge it with a deep cycle battery charger.
No, an automobile battery charger outputs 12 Volts. This is far too many volts to charge a 5 Volt battery. You would destroy the 5 Volt battery with this charger.
Since the voltage is the same, I would expect that not much charge would be transferred. Normally, for a 24 V battery, you would need a HIGHER voltage to charge it.
What is the common problem with your motorcycle when your battery has a full charge and there is no power?
Well i would suggest connecting the battery...
Would a 36V 230 Ah 6hr 335 Ah 20hr traction battery charge on a DC volts24v DCamps20A battery charger?
NO, in order to 'charge' a battery, the charging device must be at a higher voltage than the battery in order for current to flow to the battery.
Dead Battery. Are you sure your battery can maintain or hold a charge?
On a Honda Civic I would not buy under a 500 CCA battery. The more the better especially if you live in a cold climate.
How long it takes to charge any battery depends on how much electrical charge it can hold. The physical size of a battery can give an indication of how much charge it may hold: the larger the battery, the more electrical charge it is likely to be able to hold. or you could just divide the mAh of the battery by the output rate of the charger. ex: 5000 mAh on a 3000 milliamp output… Read More
No, a 12-volt charger cannot charge a 36-volt battery. The electrical potential difference across the leads of a charger must exceed the electrical potential difference across the terminals of any battery it is expected to charge. And 12 volts is much less than 36 volts. WHY? The 36-volt battery would require at least 39.3 volts to get to a float charge. This would charge the battery to 80% quickly, and then take a logarithmic period… Read More
I would suspect the battery has been discharged, is defective, or you have loose or corroded battery terminals. Remove and clean the terminals and if that does not solve the problem charge the battery with a battery charger. If it will not take a charge then replace the battery.
I would say it depends on how long the battery sat around at the retailer. If you bought a battery that is very popular and fits many models then it probably has not sat around very long. If your battery is an oddball, and has been sitting, then it may need a charge. I would recommend a charger with an automatic setting which will cut off when the charge is complete. Rick.
Depends on how low of charge the battery is. I would guess around 6 hours on a dead battery. I suggest you use an automatic charger so you do not have to guess.
First - try removing the battery cables and cleaning the cable ends and battery posts up. Sometimes it is just a dirty corroded connection that is causing the problem. If the battery is old enough to need replacement (3-4 years or older), it would probably be a good investment to just go ahead and replace it.
It would depend on the condition of the battery.
take them out . you should charge battery then be ok.
if you charge it for too long. keep a close eye on it as it is charged.
30 year old battery?? I have never heard of a battery lasting this long. This has to be a record of some sort. I would contact the battery manufacture as they may want this battery and give you a new one for it. Anyway if the battery will not hold a charge it has a dead cell and needs to be replaced.
Most often, yes. But... it would have to be in contact with the battery charger. There is no way I know of to charge a camera battery without it being in contact with either the camera or the charger.
Does any one know why a 95 Nissan pick-up 2.4 would charge the battery at low rpms but when going down the road the alternator does not charge The belt is tight and the battery does hold a charge?
ask a mechanic.
550.00 @ Honda of Annapolis. Having the same problem with my 92 Accord.
Yes. A battery draws what it needs from the charger, the charger does not force current into the battery. The voltage spec. is the same. Things would be different if you were to try to charge a five volt battery with a ten volt charger. You would probably blow the battery. Hope this helps.
The car battery has 12 volts; you need MORE than that to charge it. You can't charge it with 6 volts, unless you somehow raise the voltage. In that case, how long it takes to charge the car battery will depend on the capacity of the charging device. Usually a few hours.
A car salesman had to 'charge' the battery to a brand new car in a dealership showroom for it to be taken out for a road test will driving it around the block for few minutes 'charge' the battery?
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… Read More
I would recommend a slow charge of 10 amps at 12 volts.
It would be an assault and battery. It will probably be a misdemeanor.
No, why would you even think that is possible?
I parked my car for over a year and when I tried starting the car the battery is stone dead I would like to know can the battery be revived if yes how.?
You need to charge the battery with a battery charger.
In much of the world, flat is the word of choice for a battery which is nearly used up. A more correct term would be 'exhausted'. Weak, used up, run-down are all acceptable terms. 'Dead' can be vague when referring to a battery. It can mean a battery that will not accept a charge, or will not retain a charge, or a battery that is completely exhausted but would still be functional if charged.
It can, though it is unlikely -- the alternator and the voltage regulator would both have to be faulty. A faulty alternator will not charge a battery, though, so it may seem normal until the charge put into the battery at the store runs out.
If you are 100% sure the alternator is good, then either the wiring or the battery are bad. If the battery has a dead cell it will not hold a charge. Disconnect the battery cables and clean the connections. Charge the battery with a battery charger, and then connect the cables. If the battery is over 3 years old, it is more than likely bad.
The battery might be bad or the charging system might be not good or the batteries life might expired.
The obvious answer (without having any additional information) would be to charge the battery !
If you connected a battery to a usb cord with some wire and connected that to another device would it charge?
depends on the voltage of the battery being used. USB voltage is 5 volts DC. If you use a car battery, which is generally 12 volts, I would think your device would not like this. But to answer your question. Yes, it will charge. But not properly if you do not use the correct voltage.
That would depend on the size of the battery, you want the amps of the charger to be reasonably proportional to the capacity of the battery.
Replaced the battery in the remote.
