Battery discharges in about 3 days if not run.

it may have deffective diode on the charging system(the alternator). 14 volts is an over charge in a battery. ampere reading must be on what the battery designed.

My battery will die if I do not run car for 24 hours ,good battery. How do I fix Problem after removing fuzes

If you sure the battery is good, using the volt-ampere meter set to 100 mA, remove the positive cable of battery, connect it to negative(black) cable of amperemeter and connect the positive lead of battery to the positive (red) cable of amperemeter, read the amperage. It should be less than 50-60 mA
Next step, read the voltage of battery when the engine in idle. It should be 13-14 V. If below, replace the alternator

How do i test the alternator before replacing.The battery doesnt seem to charge.

With the car running use a volt meter set on DC volts put each lead on its matching color on the battery(red to red, black to black.) meter should read 13-14 volts you can also go from negative to the large wired usually red terminal on the alternator, whichever is easier.
Also the battery light should come on in the car if not charging (but not always if alternator is weak but not dead).
Also old school method is start car. Loosen negative battery cable if engine dies then alternator is not working.
Finally go to parts store and they will put machine on the battery which will give you an answer. They do it for free. I prefer the other methods first I find them more reliable but in a pinch run to a store and at least youll have a quick idea.

I have alternator charging battery problems on my 1991 Chrysler Lebaron LX 3.0 Liter V6 Convertible. Any ideas?

hello there:
you're problem may be in the alternator or the battery to find out you will need a volt meter and have the vehicle running to test the alternator set you volt meter to dc voltage and touch the positive side with the red lead and the negative side with the black lead you should show 14 to 14.5 volts if not replace the alternator then with car off using the volt meter and test the battery the same way you should get 12 to 13 volts then wit the volt meter still hooked up to the battery with the help from someone try to start the car and see if the voltage drops below 10 volts if so the battery might be shot....hope this is helpful best regards D.Jones p.s please leave a review thanks

When the Jeep was new the volt meter read 14 the volt meter reads 13 volts with a one year old battery. Since the battery is a 12 volt battery should there be any concern that the volt meter...

It needs to be looked at,hook a volt meter to the battery,and start the engine,turn the ac on high blower,and the head lights on,the alternator should be putting out 13.65 volts to 14.25 volts,if it is any lower than this,replace the alternator,now,if the reading is not the same as in the vehicles volt meter,then the cables,positive and negative need to be replaced,the cables get old,and corrode on the inside and break down,they do not carry the current as they should.Shuold you decide to replace them,go with a larger diameter cable,both positive,and negative.

How can i tell if my starter is going bad? I had

It may not be the starter. The battery could have a weak or dead cell in it and not holding a charge.
The alternator could be bad and charging the battery.
If you have a volt meter, or can get one, with the car running, put the leads from the meter to the battery terminals, red positive, black ground.
Put the meter switch to 12 volts. If the meter reads 14 to 15 volts, the alternator is ok, below that it isn't charging. If it does read 14 to 15 volts, replace the battery.
By the way, the starter is ok, or it wouldn't have started with a jump.
It's more a battery/alternator issue. Clean the battery terminals first and see if that makes a difference.

Jeep has been having trouble starting. A new starter, alt, and battery has been tried.

did you replace these things because the engine was turning over slower then normal?
or no turning over at all?
or turning over but wouldn't start?

Most likely it is the voltage regulator that's going bad which allows overcharging. this is inside the alternator, so it most likely needs replacement. you could pull it out and take it in to most auto parts stores and they would check it to make sure.

Jeep wouldn't start Tried to Jump start it didn't work so I poped the clutch and it started I drove for a few min and it died again then I hooked up a portable Battery charger and it started then it died...

I would take the battery out and charge it, clean the post and cables. If you can take the battery and alternator down and have them checked. any parts store will do this for free. You don't want to just start replacing parts. it is better to have them checked out. If you have a volt meter, then you can check them yourself. Make sure your battery is fully charged. it should read between 13.5 and 14 volts.
