My 92 GMC won't keep a charge after i bought new battery and alternator. Checked all wiring and fuses still stays around 10 volts with new battery and alternator


Did you check for B+ voltage at the alternator with DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? The heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator should have battery voltage on it. How wires are there in the connector at the alternator ? Does the battery symbol light lit up on the instrument cluster with the key on engine off ? Does the light go off when vehicle is started ?
1992 GMC what ? Look for blown fusible link at battery junction block located on the fire wall near or behind brake booster !

Driving along lights dimmed, instrument panel died, loss of power then engine cut out & wouldn't start. Starts with a jump but when i turn key to heat glow plug, instrument panel goes mad


I assume there's a problem with alternator. Check the grounding to engine, check continuity of a positive wire between alternator and battery. the energizing voltage should be checked as well. Might be the bad connection between battery and vehicle body grounding. Diesel cars are sensitive even in a little loss of connection and rust in the connection points.

2004 Pontiac Montana -brand new battery, new alternator(not rebuilt). have to jump start and runs for a while then dies some times wont take charge. battery will die not running in a day. very intermi


First, you can't and shouldn't test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable while the engine is running. You run the risk of cooking the alternator and the computer. Thats how we used to test generators back in the last century.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ? Is the battery charge warning light on ?
There should be a fuseable link between the alternator and the battery that could keep the alternator from charging the battery.
The ignition module would have no effect on the charging system.

Instrument panel warning :: Engine block :: electrical?


you have to clear all the codes first, your vehicle stored fault even when the battery was replaced it created trouble codes. have it reseted and see if it comes back on.
