When charging pull off the acid cell covers so it wont blow up if the pressure is too high. I had a huge Interstate batt blow up 1 foot away from my face while charging. Luckily in my family our skin is noit affected by batt acid. I can actually pour H2SO4 on my hands with no affect.

if there older than 3 years, then there probably gettin real weak a not lasting as long as they use to. they usually last about 3-5 years then there done. check the sides of the batteries, sometimes theres a bulge on either side, that means that there not getting a full charge and there bad

ok today i let em sit and they got more of a charge but it wasnt quite getting to zero on the charger so it boggled me :cheesy: so n e way i went to my homeboyz job and we put a voltometer to the 4 front ones and 2 of em read over 14 volts while the other 2 were like 10 volts and the last one read 8 volts!! so now imma jus put a 12 volt charger on em to see if giving them an even charge will take my lil problem away from lifting too slow in the front while the rear lifts up hella fast, we'll see :uh:

if those 2 batteries read below 12.36 volts there bad, no charger will bring them back. only thing you can do is test the 2 good batteries and remember their CCA and match those up to some new ones. replace the bad ones with new ones. thatl solve your ploblems.(hopefully) :)
