Re: Won't Start - Lights Flashing
Thanks for the reply bansil!
So... I trickle charged the batteries over the weekend on an old Sears charger. They got the needle down to between 2 and 3 on the charger. So this morning I took them off, hooked them up to the bus and it started right up. The voltage gauge in the instrument panel showed the voltage right at 14 and steady.
I let the engine idle for a while, say 5 or ten minutes, and then I turned it off. It sat for about another 5 to ten minutes and then I tried to start it up.
The first crank it clicked, the dash warning lights lit up for a second and then nothing. I turned the key a second time and absolutely nothing. No click, I tried to turn the interior lights on, but nothing there either. No juice. The voltage gauge then read below 12. (photo attached to the post.)
So... Now what do you think?
Do I have bad batteries?
Did I not charge them long enough?
Is something draining the charge, but how could that happen in like 10 minutes?
Maybe I didn't hook them up properly in series?
Thanks so much for anyone reading and commenting on this.
