    the added adaptor is called relay, but later realise the ac plug draws current from the altewrnator.it is removed and the car is ok, but am scared for the problem should not repeat itself

Brand new battery and alternator but keeps turning off. I have to keep jumping the battery. What's wrong?


Check the alternator output with a multimeter. You should get14volts out of the alternator (I purchase brand new alternator and sometimes there no good), it happens, check the big wire coming out of the alternator, if you dont get at lease 14volts it's no good (it's got to generate more than 12volts).good luck.

Having trouble fault finding why battery wont charge we have checked all fuses and connections to alternator, but have found there is no alert light for the battery when it is low or a belt broke it had...


you check all the fuses,including the 30amp fuse or is it 40amp they are not blown none of them,dont take of any leads when the car is running that will definetly short the system. use a volt meter okay. Well if you dont have one use this method then we will trouble shoot the alternator. got a pocket screw driver? you can only do this if there is no cover on the back of the alternator and if it is safe to reach the back of the alternator without falling in the engine. get a sizable screw driver .Tthe middle but area of the alternator produces a magnetic potential, you are charging. now is there a magnetic potential there if yes you are charging if no then you are not as long as its 2 volt above battery there is a magnetic potential and you are charging if it is 1 volt of potential there is no potential and no charging. you basically testing for a magnetic attraction of the screw driver to the middle back of the alternator. so dont remove the leads,here youll know if you need a battery. magnet is there get a battery, no magnet get and alternaor.

Left the key on over nigth the battery was dead the next morning os charged it up and was except the battery light kepts coming on then go's out after a few miles


Your battery may still be weak. Make sure it is fully charged. Also, this could be a sign that your alternator is going bad. A dead alternator will drain a battery real quick. Here is a simple way to test. Start your car and take the hot side battery terminal off of the battery, the red side. When you take it off, if it dies instantly, your alternator is bad. If it stays running, you could have a bad battery. Autozone and other part stores can check your battery for free. This simple test will give you the answer you need. I hope this helps you. Best of luck my friend.

2004 ford focus se replaced alternator couple of mnths ago went to start this morn battery dead charged battery still no start. jumped of another battery started but when removed jumper cables car died


Sounds to me that your battery has shorted out and will not take a charge.Disconnect the battery and try to charge it, then check to see if it has taken power with a volt meter. A shorted battery will take all the power from the alternator and run it to ground leaving no power to run the car. Also check the alternator output with a volt meter after you have checked the battery as a shorted battery can burn out the alternator.

Battery goes dead overnight on four occasions


I dont think the dealer knew what he was doing ,your altenator has 6 diodes inside it and the are a one way check valve for current,If one fails no light will come on because it is still charging,But will drain your battery,I hope this helps you and have a merry x mas and please dont forget to vote on this solution

Engine whistling when cold in morning


Your alternator is drawing alot of power trying to charge the battery.Try tightening the belt.That should fix your problem..The reason the alternator is whistling so much on cold starts is because thats when it takes the most power from the battery to start the car.And the noise from the alternator is it charging it back up..So I'd try tighting the belt that will fix the smell and watch for the battery light or alternator light in the dash come on the could be your alternator failing and you dont want that to happen..I hope this helps you fix the problem.Have a great day...
