How have you determined that the alternator (generator) is working fine?

Whilst the engine is running you need to see if there is at least 12 volts (usually 13.5V) across the battery using a voltmeter or similar tool. Also, whilst the engine is running, what happens when you turn the headlights on? (Does the car stall or try to stall?) This would affect night driving using headlights.

Most importantly, you run the risk of damaging the diodes on the alternator whilst running the
engine with a flat or undercharged battery.

There is also a regulator that controls the voltage from the alternator.

have you checked all fuses, including engine fuses located under the bonnet?

Tip

Vehicle won't start when hot


A common problem that's surfaced a great deal lately is a car/truck that starts fine when the engine is cold but won't when the engine is warm. Most of the time, the car will require a jump start with a warm engine to get it to start. Most mistakenly assume a bad battery and change it out, only to have the same problem. What happens is most starters don't just "quit" when they are defective. A bad starter will usually start your vehicle when it's absolutely cold. Once warm, the starter will behave as follows:<br /> <ul> <li>No power</li> <li>Click then nothing</li> <li>All other electrical is fine (headlights, stereo, alarm etc)</li></ul> If your car or truck won't start when the engine is warm, but starts fine when it's cold, you most likely have a bad starter. Although replacing the battery is less expensive, it rarely (if ever) will resolve this issue. Consider the age of the car / starter when these symptoms occur. If you have an older vehicle (older than 5 years) then replacing the starter is a good place to start prior to buying other electrical components (battery, alternator). <br /> <br /> Always bring the vehicle to a shop that offers a free electrical diagnostic test to confirm the electrical system is sound to rule out an electrical problem first. If the electrical system is sound, I'd go ahead and replace the starter. <br />Although this tip will show under the Lincoln category, it applies to all makes and models.<br />

Vehicle started sludgish after cranking once during the weekend


By now I would guess you have replaced the battery in the vehicle. Batteries always struggle during winter if they are getting old or run down after a lot of short runs and use of the heater blower, windscreen wipers, electric rear window heater and headlights.
Nothing beats a garaged car for being easy on the battery........and giving it at least a 10 mile run every weekend at speed keeps the condensation out of the engine, oil and exhaust systems.

You said that you replaced the battery so in either case of new or another battery have a load test done as what you describe indicates a failing cell in the battery or loose t/dirty terminals.

The battery is run down too low. When the light came on, alternator stopped working- the vehicle ran off the battery, until the lights and other electricals ran the battery down too low.
Recharge the battery, and have the alternator tested. It will probably need replacing. If you bring it into a parts store, they will test it for free.

After replacing the Battery in My 2003 ML 350, The radio stop working and the engine starts but do not idle. Does any one know what could be the cause of this problem


It's a Mercedes, so electrical issues are extremely common. The ML especially of that year is about the most problematic car Mercedes ever produced.
It has issues everywhere from short circuits due to the wiring shrouding breaking down over time, to ECMs/ECUs failing without necessarily any good reason to. As there are too many faults on that particular vehicle to mention, it won't be easy to diagnose this one over the internet. You will likely require an auto electrician, and perhaps not even just one workshop to manage all types of issues. My best advice once you've dealt with this one and the vehicle is working is to sell it. You won't stop working on expensive issues with this mark and model.

I won't make you feel any better, but time & mileage
won't always be the reason things act up

Some people break down driving off the dealers
lot, with a brand new vehicle

I once worked at a ford plant & have seen them stop
dead in the factory & being pushed off the dyno or stranded
on the highway on my way to work, while being driven 4
miles before going on a car carrier

At 6 to 8 or 9 years, has always seemed to be the point
where you get the longest run, of one or two issues a year

Check for Codes
Check your dash lights,they should go off if it starts
How old is the battery? Just because one went 8 years
then next may go only 2 and a half
Listen for the fuel pump when you turn the key on
9 Years was always when my starters quit
Fuel pump is my guess,check pressure at engine

Car losing battery


Possible faulty starter motor. If it is stuck on, you will not always know, it will drain your battery and burn itself out, particularly the solenoid. It could blow other fuses, check and replace if required. Try replacing starter motor. Some times you can give the starter motor a sharp tap and it will work but not always, first sign of a dodgy starter motor is click click click.
