Eurocar Inc. :

hello there

Eurocar Inc. :

do you have a volt meter to measure the battery voltage?

Eurocar Inc. :

and how old is the battery ?

JACUSTOMER-c5leetwr- :

No, I do not have a volt meter. The car belongs to a friend - so I do not know how old the battery is.

JACUSTOMER-c5leetwr- :

If I get a volt meter, what then? What should the voltage be on the battery?

Eurocar Inc. :

must be 12.4 volts or greater

Eurocar Inc. :

then while charging the battery measure the voltage while charging

Eurocar Inc. :

maus not be more than 14.5 volts if above you will need a new battery

JACUSTOMER-c5leetwr- :

Since all the lights are on, and the starter makes this ticking noise - you think it is the battery?

Eurocar Inc. :
