1998nissan sendra doesn't charge but the battery light goes off when i start the engine when I remove bartery terminal engine stop running


A 98 still has a computer so with out power it will die my guess is corroded wires first use a multi meter and check for voltage on the terminal on the alternater it should show 13 to 14.5 volts D/C then check the battery see if it has 13 to 14 volts if yes it is charging if the altenater show 13 to 14 it is charging if the voltage is 11 to 12 or lower it is just reading the battery and you need a alternater if the aliternater is good and the battery is not charging it is either the power wire or ground you can use jumper cables to check jump from the post on the alternater to positive battery by its self if this fixes it it is the power wire if not unhook the positive and then connect the ground thermal to the engine block and see if that fixes it if not do both you will see the problem good luck

If i need alternater


Do you have an aftermarket stereo system? these cause a tremendous strain on your alternator which may be the problem. Check all connections to alternator, battery, and ground cables. the alternator will provide enough power to run your vehicle if it is working properly. If it is faulty, it will drain your battery. take it to an auto parts store to be tested before purchasing a new one, because it could be as simple as a loose or corroded wire

had the same thing happen to mine, apparently the ground wire was so corroded inside the insulation that the alternator could not charge the battery, soo replaced both cables and have never had that prob. since.

There might be a short between the alternater and ground.
Check wiring
Disconnect battery and alternater wiring from the back of the alternater and with a multimeter check for continuity between the BAT stud on the back and the alternater housing.There shouldn't be any.

sounds like your alternator is not charging the battery. with vehicle running take measure the voltage of the battery f it is higher then 13volts it is charging. if you do not have a volt meter remove the ground cable while the vehicle is running and the vehicle should stay running.

F350 2004 6.0 brand new alternator not charging new batteries , battery light stays on , what could I be missing?


Just cause its a new alternator does mean it should work. I would check the charge when running cause it could just be a bad alternator.

Is your serpentine belt in good condition? If not, replace it. You'll need a volt meter to check out how much the alternator is charging. Attach it to the negative & positive terminals of the battery & start car. It should read 13.2 to 14.6 volts. If it does not, you have either grounded a positive wire somewhere or your new alternator is not working. Have it tested at the automotive shop you bought it at. Good luck, I hope this helps!
