First of all make sure your battery is in good condition, and then get a voltmeter attached to battery, before start & after to confirm what your inside gauge is telling you is correct. Check and clean all connections to & from battery. Otherwise it's pointing back at regulator again.

When my vehicle is parked for a few days it will not start. I charged the battery with a batery charger. The van started. Next day it would not start. So i bought a new batery.It starts now no problem. How...


You may not have needed to buy a new battery, depending on the age of the battery and the year of the vehicle. I have owned these mini-vans for over ten years now and one problem they seem to have is build up under the positive battery post. This is usually an oxide of some kind building up on the battery post from the battery acid and then isolating the battery cable end from making contact with the post. All I've ever had to do is clean the battery post and cable end and tighten it back up and it works fine. Battery post treated washers (red and green) help this as well as putting battery terminal grease on the cable end once installed to keep corrosion from building up again.

If you have a side post battery situation you'll need to take the battery cable off the battery and clean up the bolt with a wire brush and inside the battery connection with a small wire brush kind of like a bottle brush since the threads are not very big. After cleaning apply a "thin" coat of dielectric grease. This grease is conductive and will give a better contact and keep corrosion away.

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 -

New Alternater will not charge batery


When you touch the hot wire to the manifold you may have damaged your alternator. Take your Blazer to your local car service center such as Advance auto and have them run a test to make sure your rebuilt alternator is charging. Most centers will do this free of charge.

Looks like you have replaced all of the key parts, and then some. At this point I would verify that the alternator is charging the battery. With engine off, check battery voltage. Start the engine and check thre voltage again. It should climb to charging voltage, around 13.0 to 13.5 volts. If it doesn't, check all connections. On a vehicle this old, I would start with the ground circuits.
Good luck.

My batery is geting 18 volts of charge


take your alternator off and have your local auto zone or advance test it!! Sounds like it is forcing through the regulator and over loading the battery

Jump start the car and start it only for it to die a few minutes later. could this be the altanator or batery?


It is the alterntor, if the charging system was ok the engine would continue to run. Make sure the battery is fully charged (engine cranks fast) before you replace the alternator or you could burn out the new alternator from overheating.
