Did you clean the cables when you changed the battery?

I'd trace the wires connecting your alternator and battery and make sure they are "healthy" and securely fastened. Then, I'd check the wires connecting your battery and starter. Again, make sure the wires are securely fastened and appear clean.

The starter and solenoid are one unit for this vehicle.

Hope this helps and good luck!

SOURCE: GMC Sierra Won't Start. Battery Good. Tried Jump

If you know the batter is good.

Check the Starter to see it is getting power.

Get a test light [6.00] and see if the starter will light up the test light.
If not - then you may need a new starter. From the sounds of it you might want to take it to a professional as this can be a very labor intense job because the starter has to come out the bottom.

SOURCE: my battery light is on

Sounds like your voltage regulator is acting up, and at times will not let alternator voltage reach the circuit. At this point car stars drawing on battery alone (triggering battery light) and working until it is out of juice. Before you buy a new voltage regulator, make sure that its contact points on the alternator, and the plug from it to the vehicle circuit is clean, shiny and making good contact. These parts, due to their location tend to collect dirt and moisture, leading to an intermittent performance before they stop working completely.

Alternator not charging the battery, keeps stalling and/or not starting


Your battery is discharging because you have a circuit drawing power when ignition is off. You have to identify the line by hooking up an ammeter to the battery and with the ignition switch off, start removing fuses till the draw goes down. Once you locate the offending circuit, you need to check all of the wiring and items on that load.

It may be a bad alternator. After jump starting the engine and while idling, remove the negative terminal of the battery. Observe if the engine dies, then the alternator is bad.

when you jump start it it runs then you disconnect the cable and it dies? hope this is right. the alternator could be bad and the battery isnt getting a charge so it dies from running low on battery power.hope this helps

Battery needle jumps normal to low (power draw) then all normal


Your voltage regulator is sticking a little.
I'm not sure but I think it is built into the alternator on these fords which means you may need to start thinking about a new one (either voltage regulator or alternator depending.)

91 ford temp w/new alt. ran good for a few days but now it died again and the amp light is on. Can jump it off and it will run for a while. Has new alt and new battery. Also , when you get on the brakes...


HI there
Try checking a few things first like jump start again and then take off the earth lead only{black} and let it run for 6 minute on idle then turn on the head lights main beam ,,if the engine dies in about 2 minutes then the Alternator isent working full power as it should be pumping out 13.5 volts min and the lights should be bright and stay on... if not you have a Alt problem still like a bad feed to alternator or a bad connection on the battery post or a loose wire from engine to body {earth wire } also check out the relay to Alt ..
Let me know how you get on . RON

check battery cable for tightness and no corrosion.if all is well charge the battery or jump start it. while engine running check to see if the alternator is charging it.it should be 13.5 to 14.5 volts while engine idling.turn off engine battery voltage should be 12.5. if drops to 11.0 to 10.0 volts.battery is weak.if car running the voltage should be 13.5 to 14.5 volts alternator is charging. if the voltage is 11.8 to 11.0 volts. alternator is not charging.

91 t-bird runs fine but sometimes losess all power...


When you say looses power do you mean even the dash lights? If not you should consider replacing the cam sensor. When it goes bad it seems like the batt is dying because of mis-timing of the spark. And it also feels like you have turned the key off while driving sometimes.

91 thunderbird not charging


Dear annieek,
I have the same problem on my 91 Bird. I have checked with a friend that owns a repair shop. He says when you turn the switch on you need to have the Alt. light to come on before you start the car, if it does not come on (mine does not) it is a wiring problem. That light must come on before the car is started in order to "excite" the Alternator. I am in the process now of taking the dash apart to find the problem of why the light is not coming on. More info later. This may give you a starting point.
