SOURCE: 2000 oldsmobile bravada, won't start. I replaced

This sounds familiar to me. I assume you replaced the fuel filter, if not, do so. Anyway, the same thing happened to be and I made it to the garage somehow and they said it was the pump, located inside the tank. 3 days later I picked it up and paid $350.00. It happened again a month later and I had it towed home ( the service garage changed hands and would not honor warranty). I unbolted and unstrapped the gas tank with a jack under it. The gauge said 1/4 tank so I figured on 40 lbs of fuel plus the tank.....wrong.... The tank was empty and the fuel pump had never been replaced. I has just never run my tank down that low before, so I had no way of knowing the gauge/float was miscalibrated. You never know....

Check the owners manual for the car and look at the fuses. Sometimes theres a fuse for the alternator. If everything is good there check and make sure the power wire going to the alternator is good. It should have battery voltage here.

You most likely have a problem with the car computer. It is programmed to control that as well as the rest of the vehicle's functions. Have the computer tested by a mechanic.

My 2003 Bravada has "battery not charging" light, but car starts fine. Auto Zone tested battery...Fine. Said it was alternator, but how do i know?

Suing a volt meter check to see what the charging voltage is at the battery with the engine running. If you see more than 14 volts than the alternator is working. If you see less than 13 and most likely you will see 12, the alternator is not working. Next shut off the engine and make sure there is 12 volts on the large cable/terminal on the back of the alternator. If there is replace the alternator.

Battery not charging comes on

Check the battery connections to see if they are tight also look for any corrosion that may be causing the problem.also check the cables for any damage . Some cables have a smaller wire connected to them from the alternator and during battery replacement it may have been cut or broken off.

Car will not start

Have you checked your battery to see if it's holding a charge or your battery terminals to make sure they are getting a good connection? There are many things that can cause a vehicle not to start but that is where I would start first. Once those things are elliminated you can go on to check the alternator, starter, spark plugs/wires and so forth. I would recommend checking them in that order. Your local auto parts store should be able to test your battery & alternator if you take them off & take into store.

Most likely your battery is dead and your alternator has failed. Have your battery you will need to have the alternator tested and the battery charged and tested.
Good luck.

My battery light want go off when I turn off my car

You need the rectifier replaced in the alternator or the wire to the "l" terminal of the alternator has gone to ground.Unplug the alternator to see if the light goes out if it does the problem is in the alternator,if it doesn't,the problem is on the wiring.
