You would be much better off using the following charger for the purpose you intend upon...
Eliminator Battery Charger/Maintainer
Product #11-1524-2
I have one of these and it's a no brainer.. Once charged it goes onto a float mode...

Only if you have a 12 volt battery. I charge my 12 volt motorcycle battery on only the 2 amp trickle. Anymore than that will risk damage to battery. If you are using the 6 volt battery, do not exceed 1.5 amps. Hope this helps.

Yes, you have to plug the charger cord into the wall. Connect the + and - clamps to the battery first, then plug the charger into the wall outlet.

The charger has a built-in safety feature. It must sense some voltage (3.0V ?) from the battery before it will send current to the clamps. This it to prevent the damage an accidental reverse hook up could cause.

The premise is that if your battery has less than 3.0V, it's DEAD, beyond charging (e.g. sulphated, dead cell, short, etc.).

How to Question

I purchased this unit and hooked it up to the car, turned it to charge at 12A and left it overnight but no full charge light came on.

Are the hook-up instructions as printed correct? CAA said the battery was fine other than being a bit low.

Thanks.

Make sure the Function switch is set to Charge (not Start).

You should see the amp needle move if you have a good connection and your battery is not completely dead. Try wiggling the clamps around on the battery posts to make sure you have a good connection.

Defective!
This happened to mine too! Less than 1 year old.

It is difficult to comment for certain based on your explanation. Have you tried to connect to a battery in the 2A setting for a few minutes to re-set the overload? Assuming you have, it sounds like you may have encountered a defective unit. Please return it for warranty at your local Canadian Tire store.

I have a very large battery bank that needs to be charged from time to time. How long can this charged run in the 75amp boost mode?

The boost mode is not for continuous charging. It gives you high amps but only for a short time. The best setting for you would be the 12A setting. Remember this product is for 12V systems. What is the voltage of your bank?

There are three different modes and two ways this battery charger can be used. 100Amp is an engine boost mode, 15A is a fast charge rate mode, 2A is a slow/trickle charge mode. You can use Regular mode for all automotive batteries and a Deep Cycle mode for all deep cycle batteries.
