Why have my solar lights stopped working?

I cleaned the glass cover with acetone and sprayed the cover with clear protective spray. They have been "charging" in the sun, but no longer come on at night.

    My solar lights use batteries for charging. You might want to check and see if the batteries need changed before you do anything else. I changed mine, and now my lights are working again.

    even rechargeable batteries need maintenance...it’s been a while but there is a way to fully discharge them so they take a full load, give it a google.

    Your batteries probably need changing so buy rechargeable batteries at your local hardware store.

    Batteries need to be replaced. Make sure you get rechargeable batteries.

    They do have special solar charging batteries. These batteries can go bad over time and need to be replaced. The other thing that I have had happen (just in case this is happening to you too) if water hits the solar lights (like my sprinklers were) it can kill the battery as well.

    You may have to replace the batteries. They don’t last forever.
