Check the large fusible link labeled ALT in the under hood fuse box. If this fuse gets blown, the alternator wont be able to charge even if it IS new,because the ALT circuit is open.

    It is possible...It also may be actually built into one of the positive cables coming from the + battery terminal. If you have the owners manual it should tell you where each fuse is. usually it is very close to the battery.

2001 Mazda MPV, have replaced Alternator, but battery light keeps coming on. When negative terminal wire is removed the engine dies, but using meter the voltage output is around 13.85-14. Checked all...

Removing either battery cable, thereby taking the battery out of the circuit, with the engine running can cause the alternator to charge full tilt and destroy sensitive micro volt (computer controlled) components; and I've seen wiring harnesses go up in flame from it. You may have a module problem.

We have an 2000 mpv . got a new battery which went dead after one year now the new battery also has gone dead the alternator was replaced and we are wondering if we bought the correct size battery

well normally the manufactures would list a battery type in your manual or the manufactures of the battery has a catalog with the different vehicles and the recommended battery..

things to check..

1.) look for a surface discharge meaning that some stuff on the vehicle is pulling more power than it should or some device isnt shutting off properly, like the trunk light or door lights etc..

2.) check that the alternator is pushing 14.2 volts to the battery ,, around 13.6 to 14.5 is fine any more or any less will greatly reduce battery life, this can be caused by defective wiring as well so have that checked

3.) if you have an amplifier that isnt cutting off properly well that can cause this as well by greatly reducing battery life. if you have an amplifier you would need a bigger than slandered battery and in some cases alternator upgrades..

Ok points when buying a battery..

1.) buy a battery that has the longest warranty period you can get,, If its prorated its just like not having any warranty..

2.) Buy Spectype (OEM), or brand name ones like AcDelco, Die Hard, Bosch etc..

3.) Go with a slightly larger battery if you car needs 550cca (which i think it does) go with 850cc or around that, this helps if you have a surface discharge and basically prolongs life..

All my panel lights come on. I've had it checked they say nothing is wrong but lights still come on especially the check battery but yet they can't find anything--Ideas?

Looks like your alternator is sending a bad signal to the dash, for instance if your alternator belt came off, all the lights in the dash would light up as a warning,even when the alternator send the right charge.

My battery keeps dying on my 1992 Mazda MPV. It was fine, now all of the sudden I need a jump to start it, and it will not charge while running, it wants to die while I am driving. What happened? I put in...

The alternator is what charges the battery, most likely there is a bad connection at or to the battery, or the alternator has quit working and you will need to replace the alternator.

I own a 2000 mazda mpv, battery light was on and a changed an alternator and light is still on and not charging my battery. What could be the cause?

you probably got a defective alternator...this happens more than it should...perform alternator output test at 2000 rpm you should make 13.6 volts and up to 100 amps of power under load.

How do I replace alternator in mazda mpv 2000?

Typically an alternator is an easy fix. It requires removal of the belt from the engine running it, and a few bolts that attach it to the engine.

Because of the engineering with the 2000 mpv, it is a very difficult fix, and one that requires removal of the transaxle and exhaust manifold, as well as removal of the lower engine mounts. It will take a qualified Mazda mechanic 3.5 hours to do the fix - you can (at least) triple that amount of time as a DIY project (assuming you have the right tools).
