SOURCE: new battery and alternator. Battery still won't hold charge

Check all your fuses if you had a system failure it could have blown a fuse. I am not sure on your vehicle where the fuse is in the car or under the hood it could also have a relay. You can check your alternator by checking the voltage at the back of the alternator where the big wire bolts on. You should have 14+ volts at the alternator.

SOURCE: battery not charging light comes on. new battery

I don't know what kink of car you have, but some will have a alternator fuse, also with a volt meter check voltage on big wire at back of alternator should have 13.5 + volt's, then check voltage at battery should have same voltage there also, do this with car running, if you do not have same voltage at battery less short between alternator and battery or bad fuse. There also some fuse links at starter on some car's.

98 chevy lumina wont start replaced starter and VATS relay only get click no crank what next?


Hey Todd how's it going ? How's the battery ? battery connections ? Are there any lights lit on the dash , security , check engine ? Because your getting a clicking there is nothing wrong with the theft deterrent relay ! Take a volt meter on the 20 volt scale an put negative lead at the negative battery post , then take your positive lead an put it on s terminal small wire on the starter solenoid an have someone turn the key to start position , you should see battery voltage . If you see battery voltage there is nothing wrong with the theft deterrent relay ! or the crank circuit. You need to do a voltage drop test on the starting system ! I'm thinking possible battery cable ! Starter Voltage Drop . you do know that you replaced a starter for no good reason !

Chevrolet Lumina wont charge


I ran into this problem along time ago on a chevrolet beretta i replaced the alternator and then the battery and it still wouldnt charge come to find out it was the red wire that runs from the battery to the starter the end that connects to the starter was broke and wouldnt let the battery recharge, so this is what i would check next the part only costed about 50 cents at the parts place and is very easy to replace. hope this helps.

1993 lumina sedan wont start pror to going dead that day lady said it was hard to start. thinking its a bad battery car wont start with a jump has power for radio and dime lights doesnt even click when key...


first of all. check voltage at battery with engine off. it should be at least 12.6 volts or better,less then 12 volts battery is bad. when running if alternator is ok. it should read at least 14.1 to 14.7 with accesories off. if less than 14 volts alternator is bad. make sure battery posts and cable clamps are clean and tight. also check the cable to starter for corrosion. if all is ok, then the starter or solinoid is bad. check fuses first !

97 chevy lumina wont turn over


The starter solenoid will click when the battery is to low to start the car. Have the battery charged and load tested to make sure it's good. Check the charging system to make sure the alternator is good. Check the wire connections at the starter. If either is loose, the starter won't work.
With a full, known good battery, turn on the headlamps and try starting the engine. If the headlamps stay bright, the contacts in the solenoid are bad. If the headlamps dim greatly or go out, the starter is shorted out and must be replaced.
Also try turning the crankshaft manually with a breaker bar and socket if you suspect that the engine may have seized up.

98 saturn sl1 won't start


If the problem occurs after the car has been driven long enough to reach normal operating temperature, the problem is the starter. If the 'no crank' occurs cold, retest the battery.
