Default battery charger no reading connected to battery, car no power

Okay i can stop talking like a caveman now. But that's it. The date on the battery is 10/12. So that's probably too old right? Is there anything else I should check?

Oh sorry. I know nothing about the big one. The 12v. And my charger works. I tested it on another battery.

If this the starter battery, just take it to a auto parts store. They can test and advise. Maybe prorated warranty if you go to the store it was purchased from.

I'll check with Wal-Mart but I think it's dead and beyond warranty. But no other car. Anyone deliver? I'll check in the morning unless anyone knows. Thanks!

You should be able to jump charge it from another car and drive to a store that sells a new battery.

This is why people should consider an AAA or some auto club. I pay 100 bucks a year and they will jump me, open my door or tow me 100 miles to where I want for any reason.

They also sell batteries, will install them on site during a service call and even help you get a reduced price chipped key.

I recall reading info by Willie about a double male ended cable that plugs into the 12v in cabin receptacle to act as a jumper from one car to another. Sold at Walmart and such.

Provides sufficient voltage for IMA contactors to activate and allow IMA to start the car.
