Battery not charging. Once started I disconnected the positive battery lead and the truck dies. Is it the altenator or is there a fuse or relay that could be the problem? Battery connections are clean...

It's your alternator, take your old one and have it tested while your there to get a new one but I'm 100% that is your problem. You might take that battery out while your at it and have it tested to make sure that it isn't damaging your alternator.

Will not charge new battery and alt

You can call a parts store to see if this car/ altenator has a seperate voltage regulator. This is the part that fields the altenator to send out the voltage from the altenator. If it is built into the altenator you have to pull out the altenator to have it checked. I have bought new parts that were bad from the beginning. Very frustrating.

I have a 1991 nissan pickup 4 cylinder I installed 2 brand new alternators within 2 yrs. The second one died yesterday. What could cause this problem? The battery was brand new too. I've changed the oil,...

I would be checking the wireing from your altenator,with a voltage drop, example if you have a 30 amp alt and the wire going from alt to your battery (usally to the starter)will only allow 15 amps back to your battery,the alt will charge full blast and cannot rest because of that wire or corrostion and alt will wear out premuterly,if you dont know how to do voltage drop you can ohm that wire and check for high resistance,I hope this helps you and dont forget to vote on this

Battery and brake indicator light stays on after start

When the lights are on check the battery voltage. Should be 13.0 to 14.5. If you unplug the connector on the alternator when the lights are on, do they go off?

84 ford not charging

The only thing that comes to mind is electrical connections--battery cable connections (obvious, but worth mentioning) and all wiring to alt. and regulator, nothing loose, corroded? I'd also check the battery by swapping in something else that may fit, or having it tested. Yes, it's new, but I have seen (although rarely) a bad battery that was right off the shelf, wouldn't take a charge.
