if it stalls when you remove positive battery terminal then your alternator is bad Yes, it could be the alternator, but I have an 89 Celebrity and when I first got it we had the same problem and would die out every few minutes and need a boost. We changed the alternator, did not help. We bought a Duralast Gold battery from Auto Zone which helped a little but did not fix the problem. We then took the car to an alternator repair shop called Gabby's in Knoxville TN and they replaced a large fuse under the dashboard and I never had the problem again. Cost me $5.00.

How do you charge the battery of a sportster 883?

Just like the battery on any other vehicle, connect the charger's clips to the battery terminals, red to positive and black to negative. However, because the Sportster has a relatively small battery, if charging at a high amperage (ten amps or more), it's important to monitor charging carefully unless the charger is fully automatic. Don't leave a small battery charging at a constant 10 amps overnight. For peace of mind and foolproof charging, I recommend using a Battery Tender, which you can leave connected to the battery whenever the bike is parked. It cannot overcharge yet keeps the battery at full capacity.

Can you charge a 4.2 volt battery with a 4.6 volt charger?

Can You Charge...Yes. As a matter of fact, in order to charge a battery, the charging voltage HAS to be greater than the charged battery's voltage or no current will flow and charging cannot happen.Of course, the charging voltage cannot be excessive, or damage to the battery being charged will result.In your question, 4.6 volts is not excessive for a 4.2 volt battery.

Can you charge a 12volt battery with a 6volt charger?

NO, a 12 volt battery cannot be charged with a 6 volt charger. To charge any battery, the charging voltage has to be, at least, slightly higher than higher than the voltage of the battery. Current flowing through the battery is what accomplishes the charging, and no current will flow at or below the voltage of the battery to be charged.

Can a blown fuse make the battery light come on?

No it cannot. Your battery maybe bad or your charging system may have quit. Have a service shop load test the battery and check your charing system.

Is recharging while using bad for the laptop battery?

No. When a laptop is plugged in, it immediately switches to AC power and begins charging the battery. The battery cannot become "overcharged" because special circuitry in the battery is designed to prevent this.

Where can I get the best car battery charger possible?

The Deltran Supersmart Battery Tender is the optimal choice in battery chargers for cars. It switches from a full charging mode to a float charging mode to ensure that battery is kept at maximum, it has a reverse polarity protection to ensure the user cannot be harmed, and it comes backed by a 10-year-warranty. You can buy it on for approx. $43.

Why would battery terminal corrosion prevent a car from starting?

If there is corrosion on the terminals then you will have a bad connection that will not transfer power from the battery to the starter. It is just like disconnecting the cable. Electrical current cannot flow properly through the corrosion,

What happens to the current in a circuit if a volt battery is removed and is replaced by a 3 volt battery?

The battery cannot be removed quickly! Inductance of the wiring stores energy and keeps the current flowing and decaying smoothly. There will be an opposite polarity, higher voltage pulse on the battery terminals, limited by the circuit capacitance only.
