Question about 1998 Suzuki Esteem

1 Answer

No charge to battery

I have a 1998 Suzuki Esteem, we have replaced the alternator twice, the batter twice, and still the battery will not hold a charge. Checked fusible link and it is still good. Does anyone have any clues, hints, or advice?

The starting /charging system is interrelated ....check amp draw of starter...be sure ALL grounds on engine alternator starter battery are clean and tight...also you could have a parasitic electrical leak...disconn neg side to battery and put test light in line..should be faint light for radio and computer..nothing more..if it burns bright you have something drawing power when system is off..pull fuses one at a time to discover where ....good luck

What would cause the vehicle to keep depleting batteries?


Sounds like you alternator might not be charging. If you can charge the battery and get the vehicle to a parts store, like an Oreilly's or Pep Boys, they will be able to test your charging system and determine your problem.

Battery light goes on and off. got new battery twice this year and it still dies. mechanic cannot find problem and says it's not the alternater. help, I never know when the battery is going to die.


ITS EITHER ALTERNATOR OR ALTERNATOR WIRES BROKEN OR DAMAGED.IF ALTERNATOR WIRES LOOKS OKAY.I WOULD REPLACE ALTERNATOR AND BATTERY CABLES.WHEN BATTERY LIGHT COMES ON ALTERNATOR IS NOT CHARGING BATTERY.REPLACING BATTERY TWICE A YEAR IS CHARGING PROBLEM.ALTERNATOR NOT DOING ITS JOB.IF YOU BUY ANOTHER ALTERNATOR BUY CORRECT AMP ALTERNATOR BUY WHAT FACTORY PUT IN.

I just replaced the battery on my 1999 Suzuki Esteem wagon. How can I test if the alternator is working properly?


Your car has a warning light for the alternator,for one.and most of your garages will test your alternator for free if you are their customer.If your alternator is working properly the alternator light on the dash will light when you start the car and then go out all the while the motor is running.
