HI,

If a battery has a weak or dead cell, it will not jump start or hold a charge if trying to charge it with a battery charger. At this point you will need to replace the battery in order to resolve this.

If for any reason, you can't rate my answer OKAY, GOOD, or EXCELLENT/3 STARS OR HIGHER today. Please reply and let me know why, so I can help more/better. All follow up responses are FREE, after completing the required rating

Do I only get one question???
Chrysler Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 9 months ago

HI,

If you or someone you know has a voltmeter, check the voltage at the battery. If under 10v, it has a dead cell. If between 10 and 11.5v, you can charge it for 24hrs. If above 11.5v, it has enough power to start, which means a likely failure of the starter.

If you dont have a voltmeter, you can remove the battery and take to a parts store and they will test for free

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
