need quick battery halp

jeep took a turd yet again, hold absolutely no charge, can only imagine it's the battery. gunna bring the battery to get tested and hopefully find something cheap.

question is, is there any sort of requirements for a battery on a 92 jeep cherokee? i mean my mercedes takes a huge funky sized battery that costs an assload. i just wanna know if i can just wander into an auto parts store and find a cheap one and be safe?

if they are roughly the same size it shouldn't be a problem.

even if the buick battery is smaller you should be able to use it to check to see if your jeep killed the battery.

throw it in. start it. rev it and see if the alternator indicator goes positive.

You do want the proper size battery for the tray, don't want it bouncing around the engine bay, but you can probably get the right battery for an old jeep at any parts store.

and yeah, you can probably use the battery out of the buick in a pinch or for testing.

voltage is voltage. Its fine for a test, might even be fine for normal usage, its not like you're taking a battery from a geo metro, a land boat may draw just as much as a jeep

and current is current. My UPC's are 12 volt. Not going to try to start my GF's Hyundai with it. Though I have used it to trickle charge the battery.


Dont know about recent models but older "family" buicks were low compression easy to spin motors. Dont know about jeeps.

I = E/R

The jumper cables saved your lawnmower battery.



Typical "civilian" jumper cables have at least an ohm of resistance, limiting current draw on the supply battery to 12 amps. Which is why you are supposed to hook up a jumper and let the vehicle supplying the juice rev enough to lay a surface charge on the receiving car.


Hook it up direct and try that a few times. Get a fire extinguisher first. And some baking soda.

Well you could get the Jeep started and then take off the positive lead from the battery, if the Jeep keeps running then the battery is bad, if the Jeep dies the alternator is bad. Just the old fashioned quick test.

An old fashioned way to totally fuck the alternator and/or computer.
Fucking horrible idea

Be a good idea to look at the terminals. If everything was just serviced and it was loose, the terminals might've been through too many loosen/tighten cycles, especially if you've been having trouble with the charging system and have taken them off a couple times recently. Not a horribly hard procedure replacing just the terminals
