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.

was the alternator bench tested? or tested on the car? if the alternator tests good off the car and the wiring has been tested, the ground may be loose or disconnected.

My pt cruiser will not charge the battery it has new belt new alternator and the pcm was checked and came back fine and there is power to the back of the alternator

The alternator will have power still coming through but it's the voltage regulator inside the alternator that could be bad. This is pretty much what charges and keeps the battery at charge.

Ford 2003 Expedition EB. Check Charging System

Its probably the alternator. It will need to be tested on the vehicle with the engine running and the light illuminated. Measure the battery voltage with the engine running. It should be at least 13.5 volts. If it is lower have the alternator tested at a shop with a charging system tester.

My echo 2001 car battery died, we replaced it the next day and it died as well. We had our alternator checked and it looked fine. The car runs fine after it has been jump started but dies when it is turned...

Check the battery cables at both ends. There's a good chance there's corrosion preventing the charge from the alternator from charging the battery. If the cables are fine then check the connection at both the solenoid and the alternator and make sure they are clean and grounded.

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?
