1996 Aurora with intermittent charging issues. New alternator and battery.


Are you aware that this charging system is computer controlled ? There is also a temp sensor for the battery > Battery Thermistor
In addition to the voltage regulator the charging system also utilizes a battery thermistor, which measures battery temperature, in order to control system voltage. A procedure for replacement of the battery thermistor can be found in this section.

I have a 01 olds aurora 4.0 I replace the alternator now I have a smell from my battery why?


Possibly you are over-charging the battery. You will need to check the battery voltage with the car running - you should get 13.7v to 15.1v. Anything above 15.1v means the regulator is bad and you are overcharging.

Whats wrong when the computer as ys check your charging station


Does the radio turn on when you turn ignition. If not then the Battery
has bad cell. Replace battery. Battery's in Olds Aurora 98 typically
get a very long life. 6 years . After 6 I recommend replacing battery
If your car turns what does your battery read. If it's reading only 12 V
with eng. going, your alternator has gone out. If battery is new then you'll need to find another reason your battery is draining charge.

Jumpstart 1995 oldsmobile aurora


I'm not sure if the Aurora is a special type of car that requires a different way of jumping, but when u jump start most cars, you place the red end of the jumper cables on the positive/ red side of the battery and the black end on the negative. You want to make sure the jumper clamps are touching the metal part of the battery post (so if there's covers on the battery posts, move them so the cables have good connection. The same procedure is used on both cars. Be careful not to touch the end of the cables together, as doing so will make them spark if one end is connected to the running vehicle. Let your car charge a minute then try to start. If it starts, let it charge for 5-10 minutes and run/ drive your car after disconnecting to make sure the battery does not die the next time you shut it off. If it does not start after a few minutes of charging, adjust the clamps to make sure they have a good connection, wait 2-5 minutes longer & try to start your car again. *It is normal to hear the car that is jumping you idle more quietly when your car starts pulling juice from the charged battery. Also, remove jumper cables after charging, making sure not to touch the ends togther- as it will spark again. *it is not necessary to shut off the car that's jumping you before attatching the cables, or after charging. If your car still doesn't start after repeatedly adjusting cables and trying other cables to see if it is the cables not working, you may need a new battery or alternator. I would have the battery tested to see if you need a new battery before considerring the altinator.

My battery will not keep a charge on my 1995 oldsmobile aurora. the alternator is not bad


You may or may not need to replace the battery. To check if it is a drain from one of the systems on your car; unhook the battery overnight and see if it kept the charge till morning. If it is still charged in the morning then it is not the battery.

1995 aurora oldsmobile volts light is on and charge system comes up what could be the problem


Put a voltmeter on the battery. With engine off you should read 12.0 volts. Engine running you should read between 13.7 volts and 15.1 volts. Problem could be Battery, Alternator or Regulator.

2003 olds aurora charging system low volts


The alternator is most likely the problem, it isn't putting out enough of amps to charge the battery, but enough to keep it going which won't last long. Before assuming the battery or alternator, try your battery connections for corrosion or tightness. If you live close to an auto parts store they can check the battery and alternator to see which is the problem. The battery will not hold up long if running lights at night or other power consuming things.

What is the style of battery that goes in a 2001 aurora? my car tatally died and did not have a light on of any sort but was able to be jumped but then totally died again. would you say it is the battery...


Sounds to me like charging system.(alternator) But make sure you check any big fuses under hood for being blown, which may be alternator or charge fuse.

Cigarette lighter wont work no more on my 2001 aurora


1st check all fuses. 2nd why do you need to charge all the time? If your battery keeps going low and you have to charge it all the time , perhaps you need a new battery. If the charger has to give the battery a large charge then it may have caused the fuse to fail on that circut. . Is this device for a cell phone? If it is then you probably blew a fuse. Let me know if you are charging the car battery or charging a cell phone battery.
