Typical Monday :(
Went to start my 85 hatch, E81, 2WD, Non-turbo, Carb.
Would not start. All signs point to dead battedry.
Volt meter low, red LED lit, slow fan...
I did try my electric battery charger with 125 AMP start mode.
Still did not start, did turn over. ..weakly
When I tried to start,with the electric charger I heard a "clicking noise" from the left (passenger) side and well as the wipers started to run even though the switch was off (possessed?) and the rpm gage "bounced" up to 2-3K.
Because of this I did not try another attempt.
Is this normal.
It is possible my electric charger is dead or broken.
Any one else ever have this happen?
I will try to jump start later today when the 87 Wagon (wifes) returns.
Any suggestions/thougths would be very much appreciated

sounds like the battery is fried like you said, try swapping the battery with the wifes car and see what happens - im positive thats your problem

but IF your battery is fried, you might wanna find out why its dead. Check your charging system to see if its working. If it is working, well then your battery was just bad.
