Have a charging check made. The alternator may not be charging the battery and the battery is running low. Yup, thats right, the battery running low on charge. If the alternator is not recharging the battery, the engine will use the power left in the battery, its not peculiar. When the charge gets low enough in the battery, it will be just like running out of gas.

Check the big battery cable on the starter and make sure its not touching metal anywhere. Did you get sparks at any point during your job. Check the fuse links...pull on them make sure they are intact

Pontiac Bonneville Wont start and charge after i changed alternator


Check the wire from alternator to fuse box for a bad wire or a break in it. or corrosion on it. Battery cables loose or corroded. Is the battery ok!! check the main fuses in under hood fuse box. Good-Day! The charging wire goes to the fuse box first.

2001 lincoln navigator battery drain


Did you check for B+ voltage at the heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator ? When yor turn the key to run , not start , does the charge indicator light ? When the vehicle is running is that charge light lit or off ? There is a fuse that supplies B+ voltage to it . Fuse # 30 located in the central junction box , it's a 30 amp fuse ! Plus one more fuse located in the battery junction block # 11 20amp . With out B+ voltage at these connections on the alternator it will not charge .

How do you connect alternator wires to the starter


There is only one wire common to the alternator and starter and this is the main+ wire which goes from the alternator down to the main feed terminal of the starter solenoid from there it runs to the battery + terminal.If you are replacing the cable use one of the same diameter......

I have changed both the alternater and starter


This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine. Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

Starter has no power in start 95 Lumina would not start after shutting off. All accessories work. I also jumped the solenoid and it turns but the starter doesnt.


You are reading this wrong...solenoids don't turn. They activate the starter...that turns. Check your battery connections and battery/charging system. The starter requires far more power than anything else in the car, so those items working won't tell you much.
