New member here with a battery issue.
I bought a battery for my Ford Explorer about 6 years ago and think it’s dying on me. When I turn the key all I get is repeated clicking, dash lights flashing and doors locking/unlocking. I inspected and cleaned & tightened the battery and connections and the starter connections. The starter is almost brand new. I haven’t tested it yet but I’ve got a small electronics multimeter that will give me a voltage reading but will only read amperage up to ~1500 mA.
- What do I do to test the battery here in my driveway?
- What are the voltage and current levels I should expect if the battery is still good?
- What kind of voltage/current meter would you Gus recommend for this?
Hope to hear from anyone with suggestions or advice out there. Stuck with a dead car right now so the sooner the better. Thanks.
