I am unable to start a1990 Toyota Corolla using only a high amp 110V battery charger. When a dead battery is used in conjunction with the charger the engine only then turns over rapidly, but will not start. The car ran great a few months ago before the battery issue. Did I damage the electirical system by First, using Only the Charger without being connected to the battery? I'm perplexed, any ideas?

PS- The battery charger's supply power is 110 V A/C and the output power that I connected to the car's terminals was 12 Volt D/C.

121,335

That never works, it usually winds up burning something out, so first check all of the fuses, those under the hood and inside, if you don't find any blown then I would let the pros handle it, hopefull it didn't burn out the main processor.
