How do i know when my alternator is going bad


If the batt light is on, the alternator is not charging the battery.
If the battery won't hold a charge, it could be failing.
If you are having a specific problem with your PT Cruiser or Mustang, let us know what it is.

sounds like you either have a loose wire that is preventing the alternator from charging the battery and keeping you going or the alternator has a bad diode. Take it to an auto parts store and have them test both battery and alt while the car is running.

1990 buick no start turn key dash lights go out and all is dead


When you say "turn key dash lights go out and all is dead", do the lights come back on when you turn the key back to "off"?
With key off, try turning on your headlights- are they bright?
Flip to high beams-do they get brighter?
**If lights get dim while trying this, it's the battery-(dead/needs charged or replaced-which may have been caused by a bad alternator).
Leave lights on, now turn your ignition switch to "on"-do the lights get dim or go out?
Try and start the car-anything change?
If the lights were fine until you tried to start the car, more than likely your battery terminals need cleaning/tightening.
The lights should at least get dim when you try and start the car but only while the starter turns over: when the engine is running your lights (as well as all your other electrics) are powered by the alternator.
If you do all this and lights are okay all through this procedure, your problem is probably in your starter circuit. (Starter relay, ignition/key switch)

Hope this helps.

I have just had my escort estate 1998 mot and now the batterie keep dieing after 3 days i have fully charged it and it only last 3 day.


you have a drain on the batt... try looking for lights that are not shutting off.. at nite would be best.. trunk lite glove box lite under hood light.. if these stay on you will end up w/ a dead batt.. if you find one that dont turn off just un plug it

My gen light comes on, volts goes down to around 10, dash lights goes dim, and i had the alternator and battery tested and they were both fine. Any suggestions


Im not sure how you tested the alt. but its a good idea to take a volt meter and with the car running,check at the battery and the check at the back of the alternator on the big wire its the 12v feed from the battery,you should read the same voltage at the batt. example 14.3 vor so at the batt. and only10v or so at the alt or even zero V.then we can narrow it down a little to a possible open circuit between the batt. and alt.If you need any diagrams just let me know,hope it was helpful have a good day DB
