Have a Car Question? Ask a Mechanic Online.
do you have a volt meter to measure the battery voltage?
and how old is the battery ?
No, I do not have a volt meter. The car belongs to a friend - so I do not know how old the battery is.
If I get a volt meter, what then? What should the voltage be on the battery?
must be 12.4 volts or greater
then while charging the battery measure the voltage while charging
maus not be more than 14.5 volts if above you will need a new battery
Since all the lights are on, and the starter makes this ticking noise - you think it is the battery?
need to check the source first make sure that is ok
Anything else I should check?
if ok then we need to check the large wire connection to the starter next
ok, will come back to you once done How doI do this?
just keep the question open and reply with message and i will return
ok will await for your reply
