Re: Dead Battery or ?
1 starter just clicks repeatedly
Are you sure this isn't the starter relay, not the starter itself?
2. voltage meter reads low and the lights have power but are dim.
This means one of two things:
a. The battery is discharged, for what ever reason.
b. Clean the terminals, battery cable connectors, and all the 3 Grounds.
3. it was difficult to get a connection on their positive terminal because only a small nut was exposed
a. Remove the shield.
b. Charge the battery.
c. Remove the battery and have it tested.
4. The voltage meter did not change when they were hooked up -should it?
a. Uh...you're talking about the one on the dash, or a Voltmeter you're using to find problems?
