we have a 2004 Saturn Vue that will not start. I hook up a battery charger to it and it says the battery is charged to 95% but when you turn the ignition switch the lights dim and it is as if the battery has a low charge. Any thoughts were we can start?

Asked by Jan 24, 2017 at 07:50 PM about the 2004 Saturn VUE Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car died in a parking lot a couple of days back. The car would crank but not run. Once it did run but then died immediately. After that we used a tow dolly and brought it home. At home we noticed that the battery seemed dead so we charged the battery and noticed that it was charged to 95%. As soon as we turn the key on the ignition - the interior lights go very dim as if there is not power in the battery

We changed out the battery because it the power level kept going from 12.2 to 1 to 5 back to 12.2 .. So we figured it was a bad cell or something .... now we are focusing on the Ignition Module ... I will start a new thread with that one.
