Its probably the alternator. It will need to be tested on the vehicle with the engine running and the light illuminated. Measure the battery voltage with the engine running. It should be at least 13.5 volts. If it is lower have the alternator tested at a shop with a charging system tester.

Ford v10 triton engine alternator won't charge brand new


I had a similar problem on my 98 Tioga (Ford v10). Turnd out to be just a blown fuse in the cab (wich controls the alternator's regulator.) First, confirm its the charging system and not the battery it's self. To do this, start the engine and take a voltage reading at the battery. It should be above 13 volts. If you don't have a tester, with the engine running, disconnect a battery terminal. If the engine stalls, it's proff the alternator is not out putting as it should. Check for a blown or missing fuse. Anything labeled "intrusment cluster" or "Alt" (maybe 14). If the fuses are ok you'll likely need to replace the alternator it's self. On those engines it's not hard to do. Only takes about 20 min and the the alternators are around $130. But defiantly check the fuses first.

The alternator works, but the Batt lite stays on, and the battery is not bring charged. 1983 isuzu pick up.


You say the alternator works so I have to assume you have used an ammeter and checked the alternator output at various loads or engine rpm's to ensure it's meeting its peak charging output, am I right? So that means if the battery is not charging then the battery itself has a weak cell and is not charging or you have a loose connection at your battery or the wiring to the alternator itself is bad or not making a good connection.

1983 ford bronco 302 engine wont stay running after jumped


keep in mind, your engine use both source of power to run, one from the battery and one form alternator. If the alternator is good, your engine should stay running regardless if the battery is good or bad, the alternator should keep the engine running. It sound like to me the alternator is faulty not charging your battery or keeping your engine running, even though the alternator is brand new does not mean is good. My guess I would take the alternator back and get another one. the reason why your car ran for 25 min and die it has no source of power to keep the sparks going although the alternator should keep the engine running and at the same time charging the battery but is not.

460 motorhome fan belt slipping


Check and see if the pulleys are shiny looking, also are the batteries low on charge, if you have more than one battery the load on the alt is huge, add in a low or bad set of batteries and then the belt can deliver enough power to spin the alternator, and it slips. Worked on motorhomes for year's, saw this allot.
