Question
Will this work to charge a completely flat battery for a 1988 Mercedes 2404cc van?

answer 1
Yes. If it still has a residual charge the charger will just display yellow charge light and you just leave it. If it is totally dead it will change to green after a few seconds which means its too flat. In this case just wait until the green light comes on and disconnect the negative and reattach. If the green light comes on again after a few seconds repeat. Took me 4 go's before the battery had enough charge to let it work.

So Long as the cells are still ok it will work.

You need to disconnect the battery from the van.

Halfords can check the battery for you as they have specialist tools for this purpose.

This charger would be suitable for the battery in your vehicle. However, if the battery has gone completely flat it may be damaged and might not accept a charge at all.

Yes, this charger uses pulse conditioning and a constant voltage mode to maintain the battery.

We would recommend the Halfords maintenance charger (Code 188946) as correct product to trickle charge this battery for your car.
This product is not currently on our website but we will add this in the next few days, however this charger is available in our stores
However we would never recommend leaving a lead acid batttery on charge indefinately. It should be regualry checked.

I have bought a Halford battery charger which has a selector switch for a standard or sealed battery. How do I know which type I have on my car. My car is a 2003 BMW M5.

Standard batteries have a removable cap to allow replenishment of de-ionised water.

Take a look at the battery. Most modern maintenance free batteries would be classed as sealed batteries. Some older batteries need to be topped up with de-ionised water, these would be classed as standard type batteries.

Question
I have a BMW Mini Cooper which has
not been driven since before Christmas. The battery while fairly new, is now completely flat. Will this charger be able to tell me if the battery is beyond saving and that I need a new one?

Also what kind of battery does my car have?

Thanks

Your description sounds as if the the battery may have reached the end of it’s service life and requires replacement. Please take the battery to your local store who have specialist equipment for checking batteries.

Question
When do the switches indicate ON?
This may be a silly question but on the switches there is indication as to when the switch is ON/OFF. To select BIKE/Other must the switch be depressed in that position or have the switch in the up position?
