SOURCE: How do you check if altenator is charging battery,

Most vehicles if you get the car running and unhook the positive battery cable it will stay running that is because it is running off the alternator. if it dies like your talking about I would most definitely say your alternator needs to be replaced. Most likely when you jumped your father in laws pick up there was a bad ground somewhere and your alternator got a surge of electricity and it fried it. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Battery drain, altinator not charging and gauges

Check and the ignition switch, sounds like it needs to be replaced, should be on lower side of the steering column.

SOURCE: i have a brand new altinator, but it will not

Check your battery connections so that they are clean. Then have the battery checked for a short. Any autozone will check it for free. You are running strictly off the alternator so check that battery.

THE ALTINATOR ON MY PICKUP TRUCK IS NOT PUTTING OUT AMPS TO THE AMP METER. THE BATTERY IS NEW AND THE ALTINATOR IS NEW ALSO, WHY WON'T THE ALTINATOR PUT OUT AMPS ?undefined


What model and make is your truck?
Older vehicles differ widely from later ones. Is the regulator separate from the alternator? If so, you might need to replace the regulator.
On some vehicles, the regulator was booted by the indicator lamp on the dash. If the light does not work (blown), the alternator does not charge.

2004 Mercedes-Benz C230 kompressor warning gauge Battery / Alternator needs to be service.


check your volt gauge on the dash. if it's working properly, then your car is throwing a bad code. if the battery looks as though it's taking more than 14 volts, or less than 10, you have a problem.

Check for the terminals for the battery and the alternator first. The alternator may not also be delivering current properly. Check the belt drives. Other than that it may be a bad alternator.

My 2002 jeep wrangler check gauges light came onand the battery gauge is below the left dot on the gauge. does that mean i have to replace the battery?


With the jeep running put a volt meter on the battery and it should be reading above 13 volts if not replace the altinator it isn't charging.You can check the fuse for the altinator first if not charging but most likely the altinator is bad.
