9V is way dead. Anything under 12V is pretty well dead, and you should be planning on buying a new battery. Our previous 88 Cherokee did the same thing. Left a door slightly open, lights on all night, and dead as a doornail. The battery limped on for two months, then kicked the bucket.

Put it on a 2 amp charge for a day. Remember the alternator is not designed to charge a dead battery. Drive it and then check voltage with engine off. Should be around 12.75 volts if fully charged.

The vehicle in question probably has a ~75 amp hour battery.

10.5 volts is considered 100% discharged. If the battery in question were still healthy, at still near full capacity when it was drain to 9v, it would require anywhere from 110 to 125% the energy removed from it. Lets say 125%

94 amp hours 94 amp hours divided by 2 amps is 47 hours.

If the charger used does not recognize the battery because of the 9v factor, the battery should be paralleled to a known good battery and then charged until its resting voltage is high enough that the charger will recognize it..

Since the battery in question is likely has nowhere near full capacity remaining, a day at 2 amps might be enough to bring it near full charge.

If this theoretical 2 amp charger does not raise the voltage into the mid 14's it is likely it will never

Yup. I live in the city of Syracuse. A mini detroit. Per capita, we have worse crime!

Anyway, I let it until the morning. Then let it sit for a while and checked voltage. 12.6.

That's higher than what it is after the Jeep sits for a few days. I have some parasitic draw that I need to get sorted out. It'll kill a battery on its own if left for 2 or 3 weeks.

I'm going to continue charging it. I'm sure I *could* have jumped it off of the Focus, but if it's that low, I don't want to risk the 14 year old alternator.

I'm going to let it charge at 2 amps overnight again and see what happens.

Up to about 10.6 volts. I have it on the 2 amp charge. I try to avoid 6 amp charge.


6 amps won't hurt anything and it will charge faster.

Let it do the 6 amp charge for 6 hours last night. Getting there! It's holding voltage higher than it does in the Jeep. Hopefully letting it run again tonight on the 6 am charge I'll be fully charged.

Here is one from Associated Equipment that will recharge a battery down as low as 1v. Thats the override switch.

http://associatedequip.com/product/model-9640/

This Interacter will charge also as low as 1v.

http://interacter.com/products/industrial-commercial-series-specs/

Both made in the USA.
