How long did the 2nd alt. last before it died? The voltage regulator is, I believe, attached to the alternator. Have u had the voltage regulator checked?

SOURCE: 2003 Hyundai Elantra alternator will not charge

If you have replaced the alternator and the battery has been checked and showed to be in good working condition then the only thing left is either a bad fusable link or cable (negative or psitive) going from battery to engine. You should inspect these cables and there connections. Corrosion on these connections can cause these problems. You also mention that the alternator will not keep car running. It should when you disconnect the negative battery cable while the engine is running.If all connections and cables are good and you haven't replaced alternator then you should do so.

If you get no red light for the battery charging system the charging system will not work. The indicator light initally excites the field to start charging.

SOURCE: battery not charging

Sounds like the cells in the battery have shorted. It's probably shot. Does the car run once its jump started? Does it continue to run after the cables are removed, if so your alternator is ok and its the battery. Hope that helps.

The battery won't stay charged


Hi it is possible that you Alternator is faulty,if you have access to a VoltMeter ,check the battery voltage in the morning before you try to start it you should have around 12.7 volts for a charged battery if not fully charge your battery again and check the voltage with your car running you should have around 14 volts with the engine reving at 1500 revs.ifyou get around 12 volts then your lights are taking more power from the battery than the Alternator can replace.You could also get your local garage to Drop Test your battery to see if any of the Cells are faulty

My asb light comes on when starting and stays on. Lights won't come on , power locks won't work, power windows won't work, radio won't work. All fuses are good and car runs fine.


Those are all really common symptoms of the alternator going bad on those cars. I would have it checked to make sure it's charging properly.

Battery going dead when truck is not running


If the battery isn't over 4 years old, then you
have to pull one fuse at a time or put an amp
meter in series with either battery cable to see
where the drain is.

Some Module may not be timing out or there is
a problem with the alternator

Every vehicle is wired different ,simply can't give you
a specific cause,has to be tested in the proper way
to stop the problem

Battery won't stay charged, it is brand new battery, alternator has been checked and it is good, blown BTN 60 watt fuse, on 1994 Mazda Protege.


The 60amp fuse probably is in the circuit between the alternator and the battery. Which would be why the battery is not getting charged.
Someone would need to check for a short in the wiring between the alternator and the battery.

Maybe.
It means the alternator is not charging the battery.
The battery could have a dead cell, or the alternator could be faulty, or a wiring problem between the two components.
You would need to have the battery and alternator tested.

I have a 1994 ford taurus station wagon, the battery won't stay charged, the confusing thing is that the inside panel and door light works


you have a faulty alternator by the sounds of it, try this simple test, : test the voltage of the battery with the vehicle off with a simple multimeter, it should read just over 12v then test it with the car running, it should read around 14-14.5 volts if it still only reads 12v then your alternator needs replacing.

Car dies and battery light comes on


If the light is on when car is running, the alternator is still not working. Check your power distribution center near the battery for any fuses out. Maybe there is an alternator fuse.
Is your battery good? A completely dead battery may not take a charge from the alternator. It needs to be charged off the car. Have it load tested at a parts store to see if it's good.
Is your alternator belt tight? A loose belt won't let the alternator work to capacity.

Battery won't stay charged but the alternator is working good?


If the alternator is charging properly, then you have a drain on the system that could come from anything eclectically powered, you will need to start by removing the fuse to the radio and/or clock, then connect a test light from the negative post on the battery to the battery cable (negative battery cable disconnected positive connected), if the light comes on, you have a drain and will need to start pulling and replacing fuses one by one to isolate the affected system, if the test light has not gone off while pulling fuses, you may have a drain coming from the alternator or starter and will have to disconnect those.

It's either your battery or alternator have them tested. If your alternator is bad it wont charge the battery. If the battery is bad it won't hold the charge from the alternator. Good luck!
