Check your voltage regulator if equipped. If not, trace the positive wire to the fusable link

The battery isn't charging some thing keeps killing the battery. The alt seems to be working but the battery want hold a charge for very long.


Have the battery load tested to determine it's ability to take & hold a charge. It could have a bad cell that will drain the good cells. Your local auto parts will test the battery free of charge.
I hope this helps.

Alternator test said good, put on car & not charging ,battery test good amp meter decrease`s


Remove and clean battery cables , replace bolts. Check for power going to the alt. it will not charge unless is has power in the connector wire. When alt is tested get them to tell you how many amps it is putting out, not volts. 12 volts will not charge a battery unless you have the correct amount of amps. I had a napa alt and had this trouble twice. The guy said it was good it had over 12 volts output, but it would not charge battery. I fixed mine with a better quality alt. from another store.
