Question about 1999 Chrysler 300M

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Chrysler 300. I just put an alternator on it last week. It ran good for a few days. Now it keeps dying. I jump it and it works for a few hours then nothing. What could it be?

Could it be that the battery is completely dead and it needs a full charge? Or could the alternator be bad? Please help!!

first of all check all your fuses, as you put the battery on wrong its possible you may have blown a few.

SOURCE: chrysler voyager wont start

hi, have exactly the same problem on a 2000 2.5 tdi, have rectified it by removing first fuse at top of box. This controls central locking, stereo & interior lights so now I just have to trace fault. when you reconnect battery I hear a relay clicking from both the left & right hand sides which seems to be on the bulkhead, these relays are not releasing and are discharging the battery after 3 days. If you can live without the above try it, your odometer light will go off too.
Will post soultion when I find it. pubredfox@gmail.com

Transmission or altenator?


I would say change the alternator out. Start with the simplest and cheapest factor first. Without the alternator keeping the engine running its hard to put it any gear.

if the electrical system is not keeping the battery charged you should clean the contacts on the battery terminals and wires and then if that doesn't work your alternator might be fried, its what restores the power to the battery after starting... if the starter won't turn the car over it might need a solenoid or replaced. finally make sure you check the relavent fuses. sometimes the simplest explaination is the best.

Alternator keeps going out


Have your battery checked before you put any more alternators in the car. If your battery has a dead cell or just needs replaced it could be making your alternators cover too much slack and burning them up.

It sounds like the alternator belt or the alternator is going bad. The squealing sound was probably the alternator belt. the alternator belt might need to get tightened or replaced or you may need a new alternator. The alternator keeps the battery charged. When the alternator goes bad the battery can not be recharged. You also should keep the power steering fluid up to par or the power steering will go bad on you.

1999 ford escort zx2 alternator works brand new battery but battery isnt charging !


Stecorbett:

May I suggest that you drive your car to one of the major auto stores and they can and will check your alternator for you to make sure it is good/bad.These places like AutoZone do this all the time. They do not charge for the check out. (Of course they are hoping that if you need a part you will buy it from them.

One other suggestion. If you do need a new alternator, get a rebuilt one. It is cheaper and most always comes with a warranty.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please take a moment to give me a rating
