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.

Question
Halfords Fully Automatic Battery Charger
I have a 70 AHr battery in my boat which is used for engine starting (9HP diesel) and also domestic supply. When the boat is ashore during the winter it is recommended that the battery is trickle charged to keep it in good condition. Would the Halfords fully automatic battery charger be suitable for this purpose. Would you recommend any other product for the job.

Having used other chargers, i can honestly say that this charger is by far the most versatile and will do what you need from it.

This charger will deliver a trickle charge once the battery is charged. We also sell a Halfords Maintenance charger for this application. This provides a trickle charge but will not charge a flat battery.

are you charging both batteries at the same time? if so they both need to be the same rating. Also if the old battery is not as good as the new one it will drag the new one down. Try charging them individually.

Question
Light doesn't stay yellow for more than a few seconds.
My battery seemed low and the car wouldn't start. A week earlier it started fine. I checked the headlights and they were dim. I disconnected the battery from the car but on connecting the charger the yellow light only came on for a few seconds and then changed to the green - fully charged - light. Is this normal and should I leave the charger on green for a few hours to see if this improves the battery before trying it in the car again?

Sounds like the battery has failed, I had a similiar fault with a leisure battery, it was low and took a charge, the light turned green but then wouldn't start the boat. Got my local garage to check the battery and it was dead. New battery fitted and no problem. I would get the battery checked it's a 30 second job at most garages.

Look at the battery and it will say maintenance free on it or nothing. Maintenance free is sealed and normal batterys you can take the caps off the top and see inside so its unsealed. You can leave the battery in but its quicker to take it out.

You do not have to remove the battery BUT it is highly advisable to remove the battery leads from the battery before connecting the battery charger leads to the battery.

Charging a flat battery
My battery is nearly flat - the ignition lights lights in the display work, but the car will not start. It is a Mercedes W124 E220 petrol. Will this revive the battery? Do I have to disconnect the battery first or simply connect the charger and switch it on?

Yes it will. You will see reviews saying the charger wont work unless it has at least some charge remaining but i managed it. When you connect it the charge light will illuminate and when finished it will go green. If it turns green after 3 seconds disconnect and reattach the negative lead. Do this until the charge light stays on as it will now have enough charge to allow it to operate. you dont have to disconnect the battery but dont start the car

This charger is suitable for your vehicle but if your battery is too deeply discharged it may be damaged and might not take a charge. Remove the battery from the vehicle before charging.
