Why would a car with a fully charged battery have dim lights and be unable to start

AnswerAnother possibility to add to the last post which was very good,(disregard if all electrical circuit tests check out correctly) a possible bad neutral sefety switch. This will not allow the car to even crank if not in park or neutral. If the switch is shorted or bad you will have a no crank condition. AnswerIf it isn't cranking like you say, you need to find where the power is stopping. Is it after the ignition switch to the battery, from the battery to the starter? **This is not a lack of spark or lack of fuel problem**. if all the power is getting to the starter, you'll have to look deeper into this being a mechanical problem. You'll need to manually turn the engine over by hand. It could be a seized motor or a seized pulley preventing the motor from spinning. It may also be a defective starter if you bought a cheap on aka autozone electrical parts. Answerhave you checked your starter relay also the fly wheel gear could be striped and you are not getting a connection between the two gears. AnswerDoes your car have a factory alarm? Sometimes the factory alarm system is not yet disengaged and the cutoff switch hasn't activated yet. This will also not allow the car to start. You'll need to reset the alarm then it will kick over.

What happens if you try to jump a fully charged battery?

Jumping a Fully Charged BatteryIF the connections [jumper cables] are connected properly, then nothing out of the ordinary happens. Connecting a jumper battery or power axillary power source only makes additional current available, if the starting circuit needs it. If the batteries are connected properly [in parallel] then this procedure increases the cranking Amps available and the voltage remains the same.
