have you checked to make sure you have a good clean earth???
Technically yes it can if it still have power, also it depends on why type of battery.
it powers electrical items like remotes and some electrical games even though they contain battery acid they are still useful
more likely a bad connector plug somewhere could be the ecu connector
No. It does not require very much power. If the battery is not putting out enough power to turn the starter, but is putting out some power it may still work. If the battery is totally dead it will not work.
Is there power to the starter "S" terminal? What car?
It could be the starter in it. It may be weak or need replaced.
I just bought a 91 dynasty. After 4 days I just tried to start it. There is no evidence of power. I tried to jump it and their was still no sign of power. Sounds like your starter, I had the same problem with my 1990 Chrysler Imperial.
All power or most power? When an engine's alternator (which is a generator for everything electrical on a vehicle) goes bad, the vehicle tends to run until the power in the battery runs out. During this process, all the electrical components (radio, lights, etc) start dimming due to the engines electrical system giving priority to the ignition system (spark plugs, ICM or Distributor, etc). (Side Note: the battery is only used to crank the engine, not to run it.) Now if it loses all power, with the engine running, then I have no idea. There must be a major short and or quite a bit of fuses burned out.
Try the cables from your battery and alt. Sometimes these can corrode.
the battery job is to start the car so the alternator will kick in after the car is running
In the US between 25 and 30 percent of the electrical power is supplied by Nuclear Reactors.
No because they need power to work.
You can still use solar panels, but they won't be able to power your home for as long during certain time periods. Thus, you'll still need to be fairly reliant on the electrical grid to be able to last throughout the year.
Yes, but you should wrap the area that was previously covered by the wrapper and paper or plastic ring with electrical tape to avoid a possible short circuit. If you still have the paper or plastic ring, put it over the positive terminal and let the electrical tape cover it. Do not put tape over the terminals. Use only one layer of electrical tape so the battery will fit more easily in the battery compartment. If electrical tape makes the battery too big to fit into the compartment, you may use Scotch tape, but I would recommend electrical tape if it will fit.
dead cell in the battery or something is on that is pulling power from the battery.
Take the car to a place where they know what they're doing. Tell them the same information, and have them check the Alternator and Voltage regulator. You may have trashed a perfectly good battery.
Yes, a radio requires very little power to operate.
Bad battery, Parasitic drain.
It could be anything from the engine to the connectors
Yes, but there may not be enough power to start the engine.
It may be the battery, if the car is running the alternator should still be good. The battery may not be holding charge and supplying your car with reserve power. I would take you car to the autoparts store and have them test the electrical system. They will do this for free and tell you if the alternator and or battery is bad.
