Make sure you check the wiring to the alternator. It goes under the front of the engine and it it prone to deterioration from oil and heat. The insulation wears of and the wires will short out, causing the alternator to stop charging.

Connecting jumpers to a battery is risky at the best of time but connecting them wrong is a death spell for the computer in the car. You will probably need another cpu unit for the car

14.9 to 15 volts is normal for a battery and the voltage regulator is built into the alt they dont often make a rebuild kit for alts anymore so buying a new one is easyer but you dont have to do that cause there is nothing wrong with it.

Check all battery connections for corossion, battery to motor and battery to body ground for corossion under mounting bolts. Also check motor to body ground strap. Also check battery wire and all otherwires on starter solonoid. Check condition of battery, even if the dashboard lights up your battery can not have enough juice to turn car over to start.

Our batery gauge jumped back and forth an nowe batery si dead will start with jump.alt si only 10 mounths old.could it be anneything els?


alternator's go bad - even some new ones are no good - prolly a rebuilt one gone bad - test it -- charge the battery - - then drive it in the day time to the local advance or auto zone - they will test ur charging system - also - take down the vin number and ask the local dealer if there have been any recalls or service bulletins - on ur car -

The alarm system may have to relearn,and the body control module may have to relearn,I would drive it a long distance to see if this stands true.Also,most of the time you have to get the e c m re flashed at the dealer,it is a wonder it stated at all.

How old is your battery? 1st thing to check is connections at battery and starter. Make sure there is no corrosion, clean connections with fine sandpaper, make sure connections are tight. If dirty or loose connections exist, you won't be able to start or jump your car. If connections check out ok, pull the battery out and bring it to a parts store for a free check of it's condition. If it's bad, again, you may not be able to even jump start it. If battery charge is good, and condition ok, check your starter. You can also get a free check if you remove it and bring it to a parts store for testing.

I have 04 Trail Blazer, the car stalls when i turn the air?


There probably was nothing wrong with your other battery, but there is something wrong with your alternator. Change the alternator, or at least have it checked. It could also be a bad connection somewhere, but usually this probem is the alt not charging enough.

89 volvo 240 dl wagon stalls and will not even turnover


A dead 7 mos battery is not getting re-charged properly. If alt is ok then it must be wires/connections. Sudden death while driving could be related to bad battery condition - thus the reprieve when turning off and starting over. I would have a real volt meter ( not just dash) attached to this car for a while so that I could see what is going on while driving.

If you can get it running again, get it to an electrical shop where they can test the charging system. If the alternator is still bad, it will continue draining the battery. If it won't run, pull the alternator and take it to a shop that can test it.
